Not bad, but predictable. I don't know if I will pick up another one of hers. . . ( )

Very intense start to this engrossing story. I especially liked the hero in his determination and steadfastness. The personality of the heroine was rather interesting. Overall a great book. Genius Elizabeth experiences a life changing event and ten years later police chief Brooks is intrigued by her seclusion. ( )

A fun light read on vacation, this little thriller, part espionage part romance, has all the right ingredients for proper entertainment. Elizabeth is a little too smart, Brooks a little too upstanding and the rest of the cast a little too much of what they need to be (evil, airy, bossy depending on the character) to be believable, but this perfection is what makes the genre fun - I certainly wouldn't expect it to be real! However, it's a page turner and never dull; the hours on the plane seemed all the shorter! ( )

Great Book-Brilliantly written! Nora Roberts at her best!!! I loved the book and finished it in one weekend as hard to put down. The audio book was excellent and Julia Whelan, performer was outstanding! With a quirky, unforgettable heroine, a pulse-pounding plot line, made for an entertaining thriller and romantic read all in one! The dialog and detail were very well done with the character Liz/Abigail (loved her), being true to form with the highly intelligent personality traits. Liz, a daughter of a controlling mother, finally lets loose one night, drinking at a nightclub and allowing a strange man's seductive Russian accent lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her --- Loved the small town and cabin where she hid out, the lovely southern town, and the loveable characters which come alive. I would a sequel….Highly recommend!

Nora Roberts always lifts my spirits when she writes very well, and this was a good one.
Though Brooks and Abigail seemed familiar from other characters from NR's other works, it was still entertaining.
Loved it. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399159126, Hardcover)

Daughter of a controlling mother, Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever.

Twelve years later, the woman known as Abigail Lowery lives on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she designs sophisticated security  systems—and supplements her own security with a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. But Abigail’s reserve only intrigues police chief Brooks Gleason. Her logical mind, her secretive nature, and her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something—and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

With a quirky, unforgettable heroine and a pulse-pounding plotline, Nora Roberts presents a riveting new read that cements her place as today’s most reliably entertaining thriller
author—and will leave people hungering for more.
