When she visits her in Florida the house has been burnt down and her aunt and her neighbour are in intensive care. She works with Joshua Rutland the neighbour’s grandson to find out who the perpetrators are but they want her out of the way, in jail or executed, so they can find the secret the house hides.
Rutland wants Kirsten for himself but she holds secrets from her previous life and wants no man in her life. She needs no man to control her. Can he protect her? Can she learnt to trust a man again? Can she confront her past and overcome her fears?
A creep in an airport, a mysterious fire, and threats to an elderly woman. These seem to not have any connection at all and yet they do. I love this story for the way that it uses suspense to hook a reader.
The biggest thing that stood out to me about this story was the character development. They’re all vividly written, especially Rutland. In the beginning of the story, I found him to be a despicable character interested only in himself, and because of this, I kept reading, trying to see if there would be any redemption for him. The story had so many twists and turns that I found myself trapped in the pages, eager to see more.
This is definitely a great read if you’re a fan of thrillers!
