Book Description

Home-based web designer and weekend equestrian Ivy Landor has lived peacefully on her mini-ranch with her husband Wade and teenaged daughter Crystal for the duration of Crystal's 16 years and beyond. However, as Ivy watches her small rural community grow with an influx of strangers, she feels uneasy with the changes they bring.

The new neighbors next door start out to be a mild annoyance, but soon Ivy finds herself embroiled in a struggle to regain her peace, quiet, privacy, and safety. Her ability to work with her horses is limited by her neighbors' thoughtless actions after Ivy suffers injuries from a couple of accidents which she considers might have been intentional.

When Ivy starts paying closer attention to these neighbors, she realizes that their trespasses exceed mere rudeness. The entire family is stalking her and her daughter. Ivy must find out why before this discomfort escalates to terror. Using her technical skills as well as some stealth, she investigates these odd people and is shocked by what she finds.

3.0 out of 5 stars More like 3 1/2 stars... April 7, 2014

All I can say is that I'm glad the author doesn't really have neighbors like this. It was definitely an interesting read and the plot twist a couple of reviewers mentioned was definitely unexpected. The wrap-up was a bit 'much' but it's how I often wrap up my own stories so I shouldn't mark too much off of it. Hahaha. I kept putting off buying the book, but it was worth the wait and was often difficult to put down. Keep up the good work, gayle!

This book started off great. The book was really good until the end. The final wrap up of the characters was not believeable. I loved it until the last chapter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss this one ..... March 31, 2011

This is by far one of the best mysteries I've read in a long time. From the first page it had me hooked and I honestly couldn't put the book down. I usually can figure out what route a mystery is going to take, but this book had me in suspense until the very end, and what a surprise that was!

Miss Silva is one talented writer and I hope to read more of her books in the future.

Loved this book! Finally got into it today, then couldn't put it down. Thanks Gayle, I got nothing done today except holding down the couch.
Great writing, kept me on the edge of my seat, evoked strong emotions in me, and a twist at the end I didn't see coming. Absolutely perfect! Well worth buying. Can't wait for the next book!

This is a great thriller, complete with edge of your seat action and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing! Believable characters and a rear window kind of setting.

Recommended! Download it now, but you won't be able to stop reading till the end!
