Summary

As a former field surgeon in Afghanistan, Heather Fontaine is used to life-or-death situations. She just didn't expect them to follow her home. When she returns from a party to find that someone has broken into her house - and threatened her friends - she assumes it is the stalker who has been following her and creeping her out. She hopes to find safety and peace of mind by leaving the city and hiding out in a small town. But trouble has followed her even there.

Luckily, a stalker isn't the only one watching Heather. Travis Walker has been secretly watching out for her for weeks. As owner of his own security agency, it's what he does. Together, Travis and Heather must figure out who wants her dead - and why - before it's too late.

Good story but narrator is not my favorite

The story is good, I am a long time Lynette Eason but I am not a fan of the narration. The cadence of this narrator is annoying after a while. Every character sounds the same and its hard at times to figure out what character is speaking.

Losing Interest

Unfortunately, the series is becoming more repetitive with each story added and definitely more unbelievable.

Who do you trust when you don't trust anyone?

This was a just right travel story. Lots of false leads like in real life. Highly recommend it.

Another Hit

I love this author. A touch of mystery, a touch of love, a touch of action and a touch of faith. Can't wait for Cayden's and or Ava's story

Riveting

Mysterious and hard to stop listening, Eason’s third book in this series is as exciting as the others with twists and turns. Becoming a loyal listener!
