Ten months ago, Elizabeth Baker uncovered a dangerous secret about her politician husband - a secret that nearly got her killed. Now she and her children are running for their lives. When Beth is hired as the caretaker of a remote Pennsylvania estate, she dares to hope she has found a corner of the world where Congressman Richard Baker can’t find them. But when her new boss dies suddenly and his nephew inherits the estate, Beth is faced with outwitting a former homicide detective who is very smart, very suspicious - and very attractive.
Forced into retirement by an injury and grieving the loss of his uncle, Jack O’Malley is unprepared to share his new home with a strange woman and her two kids. He is even less prepared for the instantaneous attraction he feels whenever Beth enters the room. She is beautiful, intelligent, kind…and obviously terrified of someone or something. As Jack’s investigation uncovers the shocking details of Beth’s past, the rural community is shaken by the murder of a local woman. Driven by instinct and desire, Jack is determined to keep Beth and her children safe, even if doing so means putting his heart - and his life - on the line.

I am not a fan of this narrator
I haven't finished the book, as the narrator speaks in a way I find distracting and annoying. I am taken away from the story.
I haven't completed it, and probably won't, unless I am trapped with NOTHING else to listen to.
The pronunciation of words like 'horses', was what turned me off right away. Actually, I purchased the book thinking it was more of a mystery and less of a romance, so that is my error.I guess I still don't know what genre it best fits. When the animals kept being referred to as 'Horse as", I quit. It is odd how a quirk like that can turn a reader of instantly. I listen to many, many books, and have listened to a wide range of narrators. Rarely does one bother me enough to quite reading a book entirely.
I'd recommend the author, as I thought the book well written. It was compelling enough to grit my teeth and not let the narration keep me from finishing it.
Haven't listened to her work before, but would again.
I love listening to books and have a very high tolerance for different styles of narration. But this time I was so distracted by the breathy voice, which alone might have been ok, but when combined with a cadence that rises at the end of phrases instead if dropping naturally, I found my attention focused on figuring out what was bothering me rather than the story. I kept waiting for her voice to drop. It gave an over dramatic flavor to the reading without which the work itself was quite ok.
I rarely post a review, but I think this author deserves a different narrator.
