Publisher's Summary

Amanda Travis is a high-powered, 28-year-old lawyer whose greatest likes are spinning classes at her Palm Beach gym and a compliant jury. As for the things she hates, they include nicknames, the color pink, clients who don't follow her advice, and memories. Unfortunately, running from her past becomes a lot harder when one of her ex-husbands calls from her hometown of Toronto with the alarming news that her mother has shot and killed a complete stranger. Now she must return to face her demons--a love that once consumed her and a mother who seems to hold a strange, dark power over everyone she encounters. But Amanda is no longer willing to acquiesce to her mother's fatal whims--no matter what the cost.

The book's promo tells us that Amanda likes spinning classes and a compliant jury. She hates nicknames, the color pink and a few other things. Marcia likes a well-written book with a sensational plot, interesting characters and an inspired narration. Marcia hates poorly written, dreadful books about thinly drawn characters tied up in ridiculous or non-existent plots, described by an irritating narrator ... and wasting her time and money. I tried to listen, I really did! But I lasted only 1 hour, 55 minutes and 44 seconds. I've never read Fielding before and don't plan to listen again. Marcia likes learning from her mistakes.

Poorly written

This book is so poorly written that it is painful. I have enjoyed Fielding in the past but this one misses on all counts. The heroine's lack of self esteem is tedious and at times overwhelming. The author's constant use of the heroine talking out loud to herself and mixing it with her dialogue with other makes it very hard to follow. Don't waste your money on this one.
