She and her nine-year-old daughter Maddie move into a house she has admired for years. She is drawn to it almost inexplicably.
Connecting with old friends is a wonderful start to her new life, but almost immediately, as she tries to write a mystery novel, strange happenings intrude upon the peace she sought. Why was a bloody knife in the walls of the new home? What do her strange and increasingly disturbing nightmares mean? Is she remembering something, or is she psychic? And why does a stalker's threats seemingly mesh with her dreams and other weird events that are occurring more and more frequently?
Chief of Police Josh Kincaid is the first responder when Abby discovers the knife; when other events are brought to his attention, he thinks she is making things up for publicity. What will have to happen before he changes his mind?
An exciting journey through various twists and turns kept me reading Dangerous Affairs, and the wonderfully fleshed out characters added just that extra something to make me eager to read until all the pieces fell into place. I was happy that I didn't figure it all out too quickly; by the time I began to suspect the one character who seemed the least likely perpetrator, I was almost at the end. And then there were more surprises. Five stars, and recommended for anyone who enjoys a romantic suspense novel.
Overall, this was a nice read. I kept coming back to see to check in on what the characters were doing. The pacing was good, the main characters likable, and the tension kept me eager to read more. Heather was a bit of a sterotypical bimbo. The romantic scenes could have used a little work; they didn't feel realistic, and the first big love scene between the main characters had a ridiculous conversation going on with the 'action'. This sentence, for example, would give a reader a glimpse at what to expect: "He was rock hard and so hot and damp she was surprised not to see steam."
I would like to read more of the author's work. One of the best things about his novel was that I didn't figure out the Whodunit part, and the suspense and mystery elements were well played.
Luckily, Abby was informally adopted by her best friend Laura's parents Bill and Mary. They are all still in her hometown to provide love and support. But Abby also seems to have attracted a stalker with her return home. It seems someone believes that the cheating adulteress she portrayed on a popular soap opera was the real Abby. Such a belief was aided by Abby's not defending herself when the press painted her as the one who had affairs that ended her marriage. Even the local police chief Josh has trouble separating the actress from the reality. Of course, Josh has the slight excuse of being in the process of getting over his own divorce and his own cheating wife.
At first, Josh is certain that Abby is manufacturing the stalker for publicity but it doesn't take long for him to see Abby as she really is. He begins investigating the stalker episodes and investigating the steadily more realistic dreams that Abby is having about a murder. Of course, things are even more complicated by a reappearance of the cheating husband and Josh's former young girlfriend who doesn't want to let him go.
This was a good mystery too. The identity of the stalker and his motives came as a complete surprise to me.
I really enjoyed this story and will be looking for more by this author.
