Daughter of a controlling mother, Elizabeth finally let
loose one night, drinking at a nightclub and allowing a
strange man’s seductive Russian accent lure her to a house
on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her
Twelve years later, the woman known as Abigail Lowery lives
on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance
programmer, she designs sophisticated security systems—and
supplements her own security with a fierce dog and an
assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little,
revealing nothing. But Abigail’s reserve only intrigues
police chief Brooks Gleason. Her logical mind, her secretive
nature, and her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated
but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection
from something—and that her elaborate defenses hide a story
that must be revealed.
With a quirky, unforgettable heroine and a pulse-pounding
plotline, Nora Roberts presents a riveting new read that
cements her place as today’s most reliably entertaining
thriller author—and will leave people hungering for more.

Great review. I love Nora Roberts, but I am normally into the lighter romance books. Your review is making me rethink this. Thanks!
