Summary

Rachel Parker never planned on going back home. But when a terrible accident abruptly ends her riding career, she has little choice but to return to Pennsylvania and rebuild the family horse farm. Not everyone is happy to see Rachel, though - someone is vandalizing her property, leaving ominous warnings she can’t ignore. It’s as if the creep knows her. As if he’s watching her.

Police Chief Mike O’Connell never counted on Rachel Parker getting in his way. Mike is frustrated as his investigation turns up too many suspects and a shockingly turbulent past Rachel refuses to discuss. There’s no denying the passion igniting between them, but Mike can’t ignore his instincts, or the escalating violence against Rachel. He senses she has a secret, one she refuses to share. A secret that is going to get her killed….

Had to stop reading...

...not because it was scary, but because of the constant, lurid references to sexual attraction. We get it, there is sexual tension. She's trying to ignore it. No need to oversell it - the audience is much more emotionally aware than the author seems to give credit for. I do like my books to have a human element, but this gets in the way of otherwise fine story telling. Love the dog, though!

mediocre

the narration was flat and one dimensionalast which made the characters the same so I could not really invest in them.

I also found the book predictable perhaps because I listened to it straight after when can run.

I won't try anymore in this series as I suspect they all follow the same pattern so the identity of the criminal will never be a surprise.

Good suspense but poor narration

A great story with a realistic romance, somewhat ruined by poor narration. The female voices of this narrator were really irritating - she made her voice rise too high to distinguish from the male voices and it sounded like the female characters were children.

I would happily read another book by this author, but would probably avoid if it had the same narrator.

Worst narrator ever!!

I could have enjoyed this book but they picked the wrong narrator. Books with only one narrator need narrator's who can mimic both male and female voices, which Elizabeth Pike could not do. I had a hard time figuring out who was talking to who and getting irritated because all the male voices were feminine. The story itself was ok although it was easy to figure out who the villain was.

An Ordinary Performance

The performance was a bit limiting. It was hard most of the time to differentiate the characters voices.

Great story but could use less sex

Melinda Leigh is a spectacular story teller. I love how she weave a mystery. The only way she could improve the books is to take out the sex nonsense - I do not need to hear explicit details about other people’s sex.

Good read.

Good read, at times I thought there were a few to many characters. All in all I enjoyed it.

Wishing I lived in this town. Great characters!

I loved how this story is in the same town as the first book.
But we get to learn about different characters or meet new people in town. There's characters in this story from book one which I think pulls it all together. It seems like a real place.

Overall great read, loved the story. Getting book three today!

Side note: I wish I could live in this town with theses characters. Such great friends. Lol

Another small town killer on the loose!

While this book was a bit slower than the 1st, it is still a great story. Small town cop and the newly returned, homegrown equestrian trainer. Someone is threatening Rachel...can Mike O’Connell find the culprit before he or she escalates to murder?

Good mystery

I enjoyed the mystery very much, but felt the long sex scenes were gratuitous and unnecessary interruptions of the story. I may not read any more of her books.

Underplayed

I really disliked the narrators voice. She sounded like she should be reading middle grade or YA stories. Her voice was too timid and young and there wasn’t a change of voice in characters. The story was simplistic. I had a lot of annoyance with the story. I didn’t see the point to Troy’s story line, besides the fact that the author wanted to have children and a newly single mother in the story who served as the cook. A six year old who didn’t say anything when she was six and didn’t say anything 25 years later and certainly didn’t remember anything shouldn’t be the motive for the killer/stalker. I thought Will would’ve lay low after book 1 and no girl was into him. I’m not sure how he became a stud in book 2. Melinda Leigh’s writing style is always the same with all her books.

Narrator performance ruins book

Could not get over the narrator. I struggled to finish listening to this book. The narrator has a very childlike voice that did not match up to the characters. Her voice had very little variation between characters. I have been listening to audio books for many years and this is one of the poorest performances.

Good story. Terrible narrator!

Struggled to finish because the narrator was terrible. Not sure if I will continue to book 3.
