Officer Ethan Hale has appeared throughout this series, so it was great to find out a bit more about him and his background. Taking care of his mum and two younger brothers has not been easy and neither will his road to love and happiness.
Abby Foster has been briefly mentioned in ‘She can scream’ as a friend and co-worker of Brooke Davenport. When Ethan pulls Abby out of a freezing river so begins their story that will have the reader turning page after page to find out exactly who is after Abby and more importantly…why?
The ending did come as a bit of a shock. I had the feeling that Ryland Valentine was who he ended up being but I had no idea who was behind the kidnap/murder attempts. Kept me guessing!
Another thrilling story set in the quite backdrop of Westbury.

From the moment Officer Ethan Hale pulls Abby Foster from icy waters, he senses there’s more to her than meets the eye. Abby has no memory of the accident that submerged her car in the frozen river. Three years ago, Abby was kidnapped and abandoned in a well for a week. The botched police investigation nearly killed her. Abby had moved to the mountains of Pennsylvania for a fresh start, but when it becomes clear that this car crash wasn’t an accident, she knows the violence from her past has caught up with her.
But Abby’s former assailant was convicted and imprisoned, so who else wants her dead?
Ethan uncovers a fresh string of murders tied to Abby’s past. Someone is trying to kill her, and this time the stalker seems determined to finish the task. As the killer grows bolder, Abby begins to trust Ethan enough to share the truth, her heart, and her life. But to stop the murders, Ethan must make a decision that could jeopardize it all.
