Lisa Jackson shows yet again why she is one of the best at romantic suspense. A pure nail biter. Harlan Coben on YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW Shiveringly good suspense! Lisa Jackson ratchets up the tension as one woman's desperate search for her missing son takes her to the very brink of losing her husband, her sanity, her very self. Each chapter will leave you wondering who to trust. The answer: You don't want to know... Lisa Gardner on YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW Absolutely tension filled... Jackson is on top of her game. Suspense Magazine on TELL ME The spookily atmospheric plot is jam-packed with scary chills and sexy thrills. Booklist on TELL ME a fast moving thriller with plenty of twists and turns, and an easy flowing style that readily catches the reader up in its thrall. Canberra Times on MALICE Gripping... Jackson heightens the creep factor. Publisher's Weekly on MALICE As a beach read, this is a cracker. Read it at night and it certainly will keep you up. For after the prologue, Jackson slips into her real agenda, and out of your comfort zone. Courier Mail, Brisbane on DEEP FREEZE Tense...

The book was originally printed titled "Wishes" - this was a total cheat to rename an older book and sell it as a new publication - the book is great but the rename-reprint seems truly unfair.

Kate Summers lost her husband and baby girl in a hit-and-run accident. She had been working for a shady law firm in Boston, but decided to relocate to Seattle to shake the painful memories of her losses. On her last day of work at the law office, her boss Tyrell Clark asked Kate to work overtime so that he could discuss an important matter with her. Tyrell was a brilliant attorney and Kate wanted to hear what was on his mind.

Tyrell Clark offered Kate a newborn boy to take with her to Seattle, to keep as her own child with no questions asked. Tyrell explained that a socially prominent client's daughter gave birth out of wedlock and the family wanted to keep the matter a secret, so adoption was out of the question. The one stipulation was that Kate and the baby get lost out West. Tyrell used his connections to have a phony birth certificate made. Kate readily accepted the offer.

Robert Sullivan III has one daughter named Beatrice and nicknamed Bibi. His only son Stuart died in an accident when he was a teenager. When Beatrice got pregnant, she told her father that a sailor fathered her child, then left town. She didn't want the baby, which was given up to a phony adoption. Beatrice did not want her father to know that she had sex with her first cousin, Uncle Frank's illegitimate son whom the family had ostracized.

Fifteen years later, Bibi flew to Montana to tell her first cousin Daegan O'Rourke that she got pregnant the night they both got drunk and had sex and that she gave the baby up for adoption to keep her father from learning of the incest. It was important to inform Deagan, because her father had hired a sleazy private detective to find her son. Bibi wants Deagan to find their son before the detective does.

Re-release of older book. It may be out of print but I remember the story. It should have been listed as a re-print with lots of added descriptions and details not told before.

I purchased several of Lisa Jackson's books based on this one and I won't do it again. This was the first and it was fair for me but she will count the legs on a centipede and describe each one in detail. I finished reading the ones I bought but I'm finished with her.

I am more into Stephen White, Lisa Gardener, tess gerritson, etc. This was my first Lisa Jackson Novel and I wasn't too happy with it. I usually read all of my books within hours, start to finish. I downloaded this on my kindle and in three days, I have yet to finish it. I am somewhat bored with the storyline and at times it gets predictable...If you like the authors i listed above, this is not the book you want to get.

I've read most of Lisa jackson's book. She's a tremendous writer. Where she ever comes up with all this scary stuff is amazing. Makes a person to fear ever turning the lights out. I sit waiting for her new one to come out.

A mother's devotion for her illegally adopted son and the struggles they face are entwined in a suspenseful love story filled with doubt and suspicion. The boy sees things both past and future which subjects him to ridicule by other kids his own age. When Deagen a good looking cowboy appears as a neighbor next door he turns their world upside down. Entertaining read.
