Publisher's Summary

Hidden Falls is exactly as Samantha Parker left it - small, insular, and prone to gossip. Eighteen years have passed since she witnessed her brother's murder, but she's still the talk of the town. Until a handsome child psychologist with haunting memories of his own arrives.
Dr. Ethan McClane isn't exactly a newcomer. If it weren't for his latest case, he'd never set foot back in Hidden Falls. Thankfully, no one seems to recognize him as the troubled teen from years past. Not even Sam, the delightfully sharp and sexy high school chemistry teacher he can't stop thinking about.
When Sam and Ethan work together to help one of her students, sparks ignite. But Sam's hazy memories of a long-ago night concern Ethan, and unlocking the repressed images reveals a dark connection between them. As the horrors of the past finally come to light, their relationship isn't the only thing in danger. A killer will strike again to keep an ugly secret hidden. This time no one will be safe.

Terrible narration..

Great story. Lots of suspects, and a surprise one at the end.

I really liked Ethan and Samantha. He was a Psychologist and she was a Chemistry teacher. I liked Seth, too, and he was dead when the story started. Margaret, Kenny, Jeff and Will were all really weird and were perfect secondary characters. And I really liked Thomas; he was a nice kid, which authors have a tough time writing about. They always want to write about teenagers based on today’s mouthy, hateful kids, at least 75% of them are, anyway.

The story itself was very interesting and it’s kept me turning the pages, wanting to find out who killed who, and when. And with the love story attached it made it even better.

There wasn’t any sexual tension but there were a couple of nice bedroom scenes. And there was swearing and the F-bomb was used 29 times.

I got this through KU.

As to the narrator: She kinda sucked at the men’s voices! I absolutely hate when men have such feminine voices, as she did very little to change her voice. I don’t know how this narrator got anything other than 1and 2 star for her narrations. She read with a little emotion but when it said someone laughed right after they said something the narrator never did. I really hate that. When a hero is over 6 feet tall and muscular and gorgeous and he says something "gruffly" you just don't expect him to sound feminine. A couple of times I had to go back over a conversation to see who said what because the hero and heroine sounded so much alike. I can't see me listening to this narrator again. I gave her 2 stars for the times she did read with the slightest bit of emotion. But 0 stars for the job she did with the men's voices.

Great plot/too much sex

The plot was great! I enjoyed it. It keep me intrigued and wanting more. The problem I had was there is one whole chapter and then other instances spread throughout the book where sexual acts are described in graphic detail. I often listen to books while working and it made me feel "dirty" listen to this one at work if I wanted to read/listen to a dime story romance (smut) novel, I'm sure I could have found one, but I don't expect that much sex in a psychological thriller. All in all still a good book though.
