Publisher's Summary

Jana Lane was America's most famous child star until she was attacked on the studio lot at 18 years old. Now a 38-year-old beauty and mother of two living in a mansion in picturesque Hudson Valley, New York, Jana's flashbacks from her past turn into murder attempts in her present.
The local suspects include Jana's down-on-his-luck husband with a dislike for living off the fruits of his wife's young labor, Jana's sister and male friend (who both have eyes for Jana's husband), Jana's show business father, her deranged loyal fan, and Jana's young Guy Friday who covets her fame and shares an uncanny resemblance to Jana.
Forced to summon up the lost courage she had as a child, Jana visits the California movie studio she once called home. This sends her on a whirlwind of visits with former and current movie studio personnel. It also leads to a romance with the son of her old producer - Rocco Cavoto - the devilishly handsome filmmaker who is planning Jana's comeback both professionally and personally. With Rocco's help, Jana uncovers a web of secrets about everyone she loves, including the person who destroyed her past and threatens to snuff out her future.

Intriguing Mystery

Jana Lane has been out of Hollywood for 20 years since a breakdown that left a hole in her memory. Now 20 years later she is having nightmares bringing up bits and pieces of her past.
There is a lot going on in this book. New characters are introduced constantly and you can't help but say ooh they are the killer each time. The action keeps building and the twists and turns at the end were astounding. I was in awe when who the attacker was and why was finally revealed.

Charissa Clark Howe did a fabulous job narrating this story. She brought Jana to life and really pulled me into the story.

If you like mystery, suspense, drama and psychological thrillers I think you will enjoy this book!
