Synopsis

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.

AudiobooksNow review by Kimberly on 2007-06-07 12:19:25

I couldn't make it past the first two chapters. The book seemed trite. As a horse person, I didn't buy into the scenes with the horses. Maybe someone else would like it, I didn't.

while this book started out slow, it continues like Johansen's other books, leaving the reader wishing that she had more time to finish the book. excellent read
