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.

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.

Cut the string

Whenever I read a book this bad, I really think about becoming an author myself. Honestly, I could do better. This book started off as yet another "hard boiled lawyer meets her match", then delved into repressed memories, ex husbands, and an overall story line that was just terrible. By the time I got to the ridiculous ending, I didn't like or care about anyone in the story. Oh, and if I had to hear the narrator's attempt at a Canadian accent (abooot?) one more time, well, you get the idea - I would skip this one.
