For eight years, single mother Grace Archer has been living a picture-perfect life raising her daughter on a horse farm in the small town of Tallanville, Alabama. Watching Frankie grow into a talented and confident young girl has made Grace as happy as any mother could hope to be. Happy enough, even, to forget the past. But the past never quite goes away. Which is why a certain charismatic man also moved to Tallanville eight years ago to watch over her.
But when violence threatens to shatter Grace and Frankie's idyllic home, the waiting is over. The ghosts of the past have returned. And they're hungry for blood. Now Grace must resume an identity she thought she had cast off forever, and match wits with an opponent as deadly as he is cunning. The prize: an extraordinary secret that only she can unfold. The forfeit: losing the thing more precious to her than life itself.

I enjoyed this book, but it really did not stick with me. It took me a long time to get through this book.

I really enjoyed this book. This is the first book by this author I rented. An abridged version may have been warranted as some parts were too detailed and were dragged out, but overall I really liked the characters. There was action, romance, family bonding with believable characters. I will listen to more by the author.

I love this type of book, but hated this one. Thought the plot was ridiculous,along with some of the dialog. Narration for main character was boring and unemotional,but some of the other characters were good. I would have sent it back half way through, except that I didn't have anything else to replace it with.

Once again Iris Johansen has given us a fast paced story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. This unabridged version is long, but gives you the full effect of the well-written story.

I love Iris Johanson. Her characters are so interesting you can't help but get caught up in their lives. When the 4th disc ended I was sad to realize I would have to wait for the arrival of the next four discs. Grace and Frankie are wonderful characters and they are lucky to have such wonderful strong, scary men in their lives. Will Frankie ever learn the truth? I guess we will have to wait for the next set of discs........ Excellent plot and narration. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good adventure.
