Kendall Deaton is a Public Defender in the small town of Prosper, South Carolina. She marries handsome hunk Matt Burnwood expecting to live a fairy tale life. But her life then changes. She is witness to a hideous event and is running for her life. To reveal more details would ruin the story.
This book is just awesome. It has a spine-tingling plot with twists that will literally keep you on the edge of your seat. The plot will keep you reading for hours on end. It's almost as if the pages turn themselves and you have been sucked into the story. The characters are wonderfully written. Kendall is someone you have to admire and you really don't know her whole story until the very last page. I can't say it enough, this book hooks you and won't let go! I agree with the other reviewer that I would like to see a book about Ricki Sue and Jim Pepperdyne. One could definitely see the sparks flying off the pages with those two.
Once again, an excellent book worth the time reading. Great job Ms. Brown.
As John struggles to regain his memory, and Kendall eludes the Burnwood clan, the two develop feelings for each other. With a relationship built on a lie, it's only a matter of time before John discovers her betrayal and Kendall comes to grips with the past that has kept her running for a year and lying to a man she has come to love.
As Brown weaves her web of intrigue, the reader is left with a compelling tale of suspense filled with colorful characters, violence, infidelity, revenge, racism, and more bubbas than you can shake a stick at, keeping readers on edge, not sure what direction the story will venture to next.

This was only the second book of Sandra Brown's I read. I loved the first one, Friction. I think she is an excellent writer at plotting and story telling. But this book was awful. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Writer/Reader
This book was a hard read for me. I don't mind flash backs in a book but this one had too many. I would have enjoyed it more if the flash backs had not been spaced out so much. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Theresa Ramey
