But will Anastasia be able to return the favor before the stalker strikes?

5.0 out of 5 stars a nicely done mystery December 8, 2012
By D. Love
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Anastasia is on the move when a friend calls needing her help and thus begins a mystery that was tension-filled as their search ended with a surprising outcome. This was a wonderful interlude and teaser to whet our appetite for the next adventures with Anastasia and her family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short Story January 10, 2013

A short story of a young woman in witness protection who thinks she's being stalked. Events occur which make this seem quite likely. One would think that in being in witness protection she would be....well....protected.

I love Anastasia as a character. I did miss the element of angst she has with her mother in law but it was a cute story.
