So when Stevie attracts the attention of a vicious psychopath, Clay will do whatever it takes to keep her alive. That is, if he can stay ahead of a killer with everything to lose—and something terrifying to hide...

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved it! I am always amazed how Karen Rose can weave a story with so many characters and plots so flawlessly. Most of the characters are ones we’ve met through the 15 books in this series. We have a grown up Alec Vaughn, who we first met when he was 12 in the 4th book, who now works for PI Clay Maynord who we’ve also met in previous books before. The main characters of this book are Clay and Stevie Mazzetti. They are not new character to those that have been following the series since the beginning. And we’ve gotten bits and pieces of Stevie’s tragic story in previous books. This book finally gives us the whole story.

Eight years ago Stevie’s husband and son were killed in a robbery. All these years she has thought it was as tragically simple as that. But that was so not the case. This book was one huge puzzle with so many pieces that little by little as the author allowed them to snap into place you were shocked at how complex a mess it was and how many people’s lives were affected.

I’m not going to go into detail about the plot as it should be experienced while reading. I will say that I am happy that Stevie and her daughter finally got resolution and that Clay finally got the woman he’s been pining for years for.
