Synopsis: It’s been ten years since Sasha Keaton left her West Virginia hometown . . . since she escaped the twisted serial killer known as the Groom. Returning to help run her family inn means being whole again, except for one missing piece. The piece that falls into place when Sasha’s threatened—and FBI agent Cole Landis vows to protect her the way he couldn’t a decade ago.
First one woman disappears; then another, and all the while, disturbing calling cards are left for the sole survivor of the Groom’s reign of terror. Cole’s never forgiven himself for not being there when Sasha was taken, but he intends to make up for it now . . . because under the quirky sexiness Cole first fell for is a steely strength that only makes him love Sasha more.
But someone is watching. Waiting. And Sasha’s first mistake could be her last.
Review: I really like the author and I was really very curious to discover her in a new genre. But on top of that, I love thrillers, so how can I resist it?
Sacha was traumatized by tragic events that took place several years ago. She has fled the city, but she is finally back in the hope of rebuilding her life. However, it seems that someone is not happy to see her come back. The windows of her car are broken at first, but when women start to disappear, she wonders if the story doesn’t start again. But her return will also bring her childhood crush back into her life, the man who made her heart beat and whom she has not forgotten. Even better, he has not forgotten her either and seems ready to do anything to protect her.
I really had a good time with this novel and if I found it easy enough to find out who the killer was and why, it wasn’t really a problem. It was very nice to see Sacha adapt to her city where she has so many bad memories, but where she can see her mother and friends. And then… how can we resist Cole? I really loved his character!
