It's so nice to visit Rock Harbor again. I feel like it's a homecoming with people who are intriguing and a town that is very quaint. Dana is a great character. She is fierce and determined. I admire her job as a 911 operator. The stress they are under each day must be tremendous. Dana seems to keep a cool head and is able to calm callers down. She has come back to Rock Harbor to avoid someone who has become abusive towards her.
I found Boone to be a great match for Dana. He has a heart of gold, but like Dana has trust issues. When they develop a friendship I started rooting for them. They are just what each other needs. The author writes a story that delves into abusive relationships with precision and compassion. I can remember growing up always hearing adults say, "Be careful of strangers . They are mean and ugly." Society does seem to classify good people by their looks. In this story looks are deceiving and social skills really come into play. The town is on edge when several women turn up dead. What is the connection between the victims? Boone has a vested interest in the investigation and wants to keep Dana safe.
The characters are mesmerizing and I have to say the intrigue is top notch. Dana feels secure now that she is staying with her brother Chris. Just being in his home gives her a sense of peace. But someone from her past will shatter her security. Will Dana's friends or brother be able to protect her? This is by far one of the best books in the series. The intense scenes draw readers in. I hope you are ready for an explosive and unexpected ending. Everyone who loves a great intriguing story must grab a copy of this book. It grabs you at the beginning and the action never stops.
I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild. The review is my own opinion.
