It's no coincidence when Grace Elland finds a vodka bottle next to the lifeless body of her boss, motivational speaker Sprague Witherspoon. The bottle is a terrifying - and deliberate - reminder of the horrors of her past. Grace retreats to her hometown to regroup and tries to put everything she's learned about positive thinking into practice - a process that is seriously challenged on the world's worst blind date. Awkward doesn't begin to describe her evening with venture-capitalist Julius Arkwright. She has nothing in common with a man who lives to make money, but the intense former Marine does have some skills that Grace can use - and he's the perfect man to help her when it becomes clear she is being stalked. As Witherspoon's financial empire continues to crumble around them, taking a deadly toll, Julius will help Grace step into her past to uncover a devious plan to destroy not only Grace, but everyone around her.

Would try another Krentz book. I loved her book, River Road, and was looking forward to more of her books but this one was disappointing. I may have liked it better if it was narrated by someone else. I won't listen to anymore books narrated by Amanda Cobb. I couldn't wait to finish this book because her narration was terrible. Unrealistic, unnatural, affected narration of dialog. Does Amanda Cobb think people sound like that when they talk? I'm surprised whoever produced this performance thought it was acceptable. If I were the author, I'd be insulted.
Yes, if Amanda Cobb didn't narrate.
Yes, some good dialog

I had real problems with this reading; I couldn't like the characters as portrayed. The narration sounded stilted with poor inflection, it was hard to discern between characters, and worst of all, most of the characters came across as whiny. Couldn't wait for it to be over.
