Publisher's Summary

Julie Barenson's young husband left her two unexpected gifts before he died - a puppy named Singer and the promise that he would always be watching over her. Now, four years later, 29-year-old Julie is far too young to have given up on love. She may be ready to risk caring for someone again. But who?
Should it be Richard Franklin, the sophisticated, handsome engineer who treats her like a queen? Or Mike Harris, the down-to-earth nice guy who was her husband's best friend? Choosing one of them should bring her more happiness than she's had in years. Instead, Julie is soon fighting for her life in a nightmare spawned by chilling deception and jealousy so poisonous that it has become a murderous desire....

The Guardian is all washed up...

What can one say about a novel in which the main characters are weak and unable to solve any problems? I listened to the whole book just to see if it could get any worse, and unamazingly, it did. There were no heroes in this book, a slight heroine who rides out of the darkness a little late, but only very stupid people who hold inane conversations and unimaginative characters who get seriously injured.

And then Sparks had the nerve to thank everyone in the world for this book, like it was an Academy award.

Don't even waste your time on this one!

I enjoyed this book very much. It tells of a very different sort of stalking than one thinks of when they hear of it. There are times when you just want to shake Julie and make her realize how she is being manipulated by this very devious person. The greatest disappointment that I experienced with it is that just when several points were going to be reconciled and explained a part of the book was missing. I couldn't believe that was the way the author wrote it so I sought out the book and almost 25 pages were not included in the narrative. Not only that but Audible has been unable to rectify this mistake at this point. Do yourself a favor and wait until the entire book is on the site before you listen to it otherwise you will be very frustrated with the lack of resolution of several questions. After the missing portion is included and I listen once again I feel I will be able to raise my review to at least four stars.
