The riveting new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Liar.
“She stood in the deep, dark woods, breath shallow and cold prickling over her skin despite the hot, heavy air. She took a step back, then two, as the urge to run fell over her.”
Naomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father’s crimes and made him infamous. No matter how close she gets to happiness, she can’t outrun the sins of Thomas David Bowes.
Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, a rambling old house in need of repair, thousands of miles away from everything she’s ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the kindly residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up—especially the determined Xander Keaton.
Naomi can feel her defenses failing, and knows that the connection her new life offers is something she’s always secretly craved. But the sins of her father can become an obsession, and, as she’s learned time and again, her past is never more than a nightmare away.

    This is by far the best book I've ever read. I'm having a hard time finding a book to read after this. Nothing can compare to this mystery/thriller!

    Great read.
  • Nice Decorating tips but not worth $14.99

    By MizMonet
    It was OK. Started off intriguing...but became slow and boring. Lots of decorating ideas if you are looking for that. I wasn't. The end was predictable. Sorry I wasted my $$.

  • Good but ....

    By Marmiladka
    The book started of REALLY good, and the middle was dragging.. I think the ending could have been better. With out giving anything away, I think toward the end when the anticipation was at it highest the author kind played it safe.
  • Always intrigued never disappointed
