This is the first book I’ve read by Jayne Ann Krentz but when I read the synopsis I was intrigued. I’d like to thank the publishers for a copy of this book for an honest review. The book is available to buy as hardcover and to download from tomorrow, 6th January 2015.
Book and Product Description (as detailed on amazon page)
Following up on the incredible success of River Road, New York Times – bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz delivers another masterpiece of romantic suspense.
It’s no coincidence when Grace Elland finds a vodka bottle next to the lifeless body of her boss, motivational speaker Sprague Witherspoon. The bottle is a terrifying-and deliberate-reminder of the horrors of her past.
Grace retreats to her hometown to regroup and tries to put everything she’s learned about positive thinking into practice-a process that is seriously challenged on the world’s worst blind date.
Awkward doesn’t begin to describe her evening with venture-capitalist Julius Arkwright. She has nothing in common with a man who lives to make money, but the intense ex-Marine does have some skills that Grace can use-and he’s the perfect man to help her when it becomes clear she is being stalked.
As Witherspoon’s financial empire continues to crumble around them, taking a deadly toll, Julius will help Grace step into her past to uncover a devious plan to destroy not only Grace, but everyone around her…
An interesting romantic, suspense story filled with intrigue, suspense, fear, desire, betrayal and love. Grace has witnessed two murders in her life. The most recent one was her boss. This new event has brought back shocking images from her past that she wishes she could forget. Grace returns back to her mother’s home to reassess her life and to try and ascertain who the murderer was. A new friendship with a successful businessman provides Grace with much needed support at a worrying and terrifying time for her.
I enjoyed this book, to me it had it all and the author kept you intrigued and filled you with anticipation as to what will happen next. A great 4/5* read.
