Time has passed, but the killer’s need for vengeance hasn’t. And as a nightmare stirs to life again, Rory will find that this time, there’s nowhere left to run…

My Review

It has ben a long time since I have read a book from either author or a collaborated book. This is because the books were starting to all blend together for me and come off as very similar just with different book covers and character names. Yet, I decided now was the time to start again.

The opening scene  was the best. It had tons of action and intensity. It was from here that I got hooked to this book. However, it slowed way down after the opening scene ended. Rory lost some of her strength after surviving the accident on her wedding day but she did gain some of it back as the story progressed. Liam is the type of guy that women would want. He is good looking, determined, rich, and will go to great lengths to protect Rory and their daughter, Charlotte. There is another that kept the story going. This is Detective Mickelson. He is smart and not that far behind from getting his man or woman.

The first half of the story was a bit dry. It never really picked up speed. When it tried to get to a "medium" level it was a lot of stop and go. This was frustrating. The latter half of the story was better but still never truly got to the "high" intensity. Yet, when I did get to the second half, I was kind of over the whole storyline. Overall, this was an ok read.
