From Publishers Weekly
In MacDonald's sixth novel, a smotheringly melodramatic mix of romance and suspense, 26-year-old psychologist Emma Hollis embarks on a nightmarish journey that begins with small glitches that raise doubts on the day she marries freelance writer David Webster. Things take a more serious turn during their honeymoon in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. After David goes out to chop wood for their cabin fire, a hooded figure attacks Emma with an ax. Though seriously wounded, Emma is saved by a passing hunter who loses his life protecting her. Where was David? Was he the attacker? Emma realizes that aside from his looks and the wonderful sex, which has resulted in her pregnancy, she knows little about her new husband. MacDonald (Stranger in the House) offers a handful of suspects, but time and again David emerges as the likeliest one. Suspend disbelief and MacDonald delivers plenty of suspense, unlikely twists and a resolution of puzzling uncertainty. (July)

Emma Webster didn't plan on becoming pregnant before marriage, but given that she has a fulfilling career as a psychologist at a mental-health facility and that David, the father of her unborn child, is now her husband, she's happy about it. But the couple's honeymoon in a rustic cabin in the New Jersey woods comes to an abrupt halt when Emma is attacked by a hooded trespasser. A hunter happens upon the ruckus (where's David, anyway?), surprising the attacker, but gets himself killed in the ensuing melee, sparing Emma's life, though just barely. As she recovers in the hospital, she's uneasy that the locals see David as the key suspect. She defends him fiercely, but why is it that David seems to be missing whenever a crisis erupts? Does Emma really know the man she vowed to love, and will "death do they part" sooner than she realizes? Or could one of Emma's deranged patients have it in for her? Recommended reading for Mary Higgins Clark fans and others who like their mysteries fast paced and told from the female point of view. Mary Frances Wilkens

I was very disappointed with the ending maybe because in real life I
don't think things would have worked out quite that way! But thats why this is fiction. Still, I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a mystery. I like Patricia MacDonalds books because they are suspenseful and there is also romance without all the graphic
details. I just want a good story, suspense,mystery and some romance...
As for the Shipper: excellent service, received item very quickly and in the condition as specified on Amazon. Would definitely order again from this Seller.
