Publisher's Summary

In this tautly crafted tale of psychological suspense, a recently widowed mother resorts to the unthinkable to protect her shattered family. But does she go too far?
After mystery author Diane Christie loses her husband to suicide, she and her son move to the small coastal town of Fog Harbor, Massachusetts. Her daughter is attending college nearby, and Diane hopes that her family can now begin to heal. But rebuilding their lives after the tragedy isn't so simple.
Diane's depressed college-age daughter, Alexa, still avoids her, critical of everything Diane does, and even her generally amiable teenage son, Josh, has started acting out. Diane pushes forward, focusing on her writing and her volunteer work at a local crisis hotline. She knows that healing takes time.
But then a girl from Alexa's college is found strangled. Worse still, the murderer uses the crisis hotline to confess to Diane...and claims she is the only one who can stop the killing. And just when the glow of new love from an attractive admirer begins to chase away some of the darkness, more girls turn up dead, and Diane races to solve a mystery she fears will hit terrifyingly close to home.

Superb psychological thriller until...

....the last 30 minutes. A committee of monkeys could have come up with a better ending. What was the author thinking? Even with 7 great hours of action and suspense and with flawless narration by Tanya Eby I cannot give this novel more than 2 stars due to the awful conclusion.

Could easily have been a 5 star book...

Would you be willing to try another book from Jennifer Jaynes? Why or why not?

With out a doubt.

What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think Tanya Eby is an excellent narrator. I do think she added to this book.

Any additional comments?

This book started out with a bang. There were murders of college women, ruminations from a troubled mind, a single mother who writes mystery books, a daughter who seems to do what ever it takes to embarrass her mom and an adopted son who is sickly. Everyone is a suspect and no one can be trusted.
This all is great and the story moves right along. Then here comes a slightly predictable conclusion to the killings and that was ok. It's what follows that that made me almost want to throw my iPod across the room! After this believable story to have such a far fetched ending just blew me away! I don't want to give anything away but I am interested in what other people think. But for me the ending brings this book down from 4 to 3 stars.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.
