“Roberts has an unparalleled ability to paint a picture with words—readers will easily picture Naomi’s photographic art and her rambling home with its beautiful view—and the story is expertly executed. Sizzling romance, affable characters, and enticing suspense make this a read to be savored.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Roberts retains her impeccably high standards in this excellently executed tale, once again dazzling readers with a sophisticated blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and sexy romance.” Booklist (starred review)
“Narrator Shannon McManus stitches together a fine presentation. She gives Naomi, Xander, and Mason, Naomi’s brother, strong voices as the plot moves from the backwoods of West Virginia to Seattle, where the story picks up both speed and sizzle. McManus gives a moving performance of Naomi’s struggles to overcome her horrific past in a psychological thriller listeners won’t want to miss. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
