When her past catches up with her, she is not the same woman who ran away. She puts her life on the line to protect her children. But will she survive the wrath of a sociopath bent on revenge?
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Someone who doesn't require realistic characters and dialogue.
What was most disappointing about J. D. Faver’s story?
Nothing wrong with the plot....but these characters - yikes! First off, inept adults who talk like a bad who-dunit movie. No one - at least not in my world - talks like this. My dear, darling....sounds ok - but when put into the story - not so much. There's a PI in the story that is so inept it's hard to understand why she would ever be trusted. And don't get me started on the Scottish luxury car rental driver who bodyguards because - hey he's really big. And he goes trotting off to the US of A to play bodyguard. First thing that happens - he gets knocked out because he never saw anyone coming at him. Wow. Some bodyguard. Then you have the main character up in the wilds of Alaska. Falls in love with her boss and everything is la, la, la....perfect. Suddenly she goes from being a scared rabbit to amazon woman. Really? And the crazy, sadistic husband that's hunting for her? Cartoon whack job is what he is. Must have gotten his character from Villains 'R Us.
How could the performance have been better?
The performance couldn't be any better because the content being read was so lousy.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Yeah, it finally ended.
