Best-selling author Karen Rose is back with her 15th pulse-pounding thriller.
Unforgettable. Stevie Mazzetti knew she would never get over the murder of her husband and son. But with their killer behind bars, she was able to move on with her life, if only for her daughter's sake.
Unimaginable. Now, eight years later, the Baltimore detective always fights for the victims she meets and when she learns that her ex-partner may have miscarried justice, Stevie's determined to right the wrong, even if it means she is in danger.
Undeniable. Clay Maynard has always wanted Stevie and when she is targeted by a vicious psychopath, he believes that protecting her may give him the chance to have her in his life forever. Clay will do anything to keep Stevie safe but with a killer on her tail who has everything to lose and a secret to hide, will they stay alive long enough to find happiness?

Interesting story, with a mix of suspense and romantic interludes. I was keen to know what was going to happen next. Some of the plot was quite predictable, and some bits seemed rather far-fetched, but then that is the beauty of fiction, I suppose.
Pace could have been quicker, a lot of the story is at a somewhat sedentary pace. Also confusing trying to keep track of who's who. As another reviewer stated, it is difficult to feel too much for Stevie, the main protagonist, as she seems perpetually angry.
Read well, good performance that is easy to listen to.
Basically a series of overwrought descriptions of sexual encounters between the dozy, gadget obsessed Clay and silly police detective Stevie who someone is trying to kill (who could blame them?). This tedium is partially relieved by some detective work though the story is vastly over long. The sex scenes however are at times hilariously and unintentionally funny. The book will appeal to dimwits with a lot of time on their hands
Stevie, the principle figure, is the most unsympathetic person I have read about. She is always 'furious', 'angry' and speaks to others without respect. Her 'relationship' with Clay makes him seem a total fool. A lot of people have died because of Stevie, yet everyone falls over themselves to look after and protect her and her daughter. I found myself feeling downright hostile to the character even though she has gone through several near misses herself. I kept wondering why her would-be assassins were such terrible shots give me a weapon I would have done the job myself!I only managed probably less than half the book before ditching it. I think I gave it my best shot (no pun intended) but I had no empathy with any of the characters. I don't know the final outcome - but neither do I care, sorry.
Reduce it by two thirds.
The narrator was good considering what she had to work with.
Yes, be more cautious about the audiobooks I buy. I wish I could return it.
I think I have said enough.
Having read and enjoyed other Karen Rose books I was looking forward to this one but the narrator completely put me off wanting to listen to her voice anymore and I can't bring myself to go any further than chapter 7.
Yes but not with this narrator
'The other cat!'
Another in the sequence by Karen Rose focusing on characters based in law enforcement.
Love is mixed with murder and mayhem as Stevie battles with ghosts from her past and Clay fights to keep her safe.
A must for all Karen Rose 🌹 fans.
i gave up - i listened to a novel y karen rose a few years back, I had to give up[have tried twice to listen],sorry the narration drove me to dispair
her portrayal of the kid
"A little different from the previous stories."
The story differs from others within the series, with 2 stories running in parallel. However, it was still up with the enjoyment factor of her other books. The narrator was easy to listen to and fitted the story.
