Synopsis

Daughter of a controlling mother, Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever.

Twelve years later, the woman known as Abigail Lowery lives on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she designs sophisticated security  systems—and supplements her own security with a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. But Abigail’s reserve only intrigues police chief Brooks Gleason. Her logical mind, her secretive nature, and her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something—and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

With a quirky, unforgettable heroine and a pulse-pounding plotline, Nora Roberts presents a riveting new read that cements her place as today’s most reliably entertaining thriller
author—and will leave people hungering for more.

I really loved the story line, it was interesting and different. The end of the book went bit too fast as if the author all of a sudden realized she has x number of pages left but still good book. One of the best ones from Roberts in this crime-romance series.

This story has become one of my favorites.Nora Roberts has created another book with characters that seem real. I love Abigail's intelligence, talents, and innocence. I smiled when she Would take things literally. Brooks Would melt any woman's heart, but Bert's loyalty to Abigail and his protectiveness stole my heart.

I really loved this book I have it on my Audible and I say this is a must read or in my case a must listen to. I loved the story because the female lead was such a strong and very smart woman with all she had to go though it was very amazing that in the end love was found and the bad guys went down.. Give you more and it spoils the fun :)...
