BJ Daniels has done it again! I should have realised what an intriguing, fast paced romantic suspense this would turn out to be – a really enthralling page turner, IMHO. It features Hawk, one of the Cahill brothers, and his first love ‘Drey’ – Deidre Hunter. They were together throughout their teens but split after tragedy and misunderstandings tore them apart. Now she’s getting married to an out of town business man, Ethan, and Hawk is determined not to intervene even though he still loves her. At the wedding reception, Ethan announces that he and his bride will be living in the newly constructed home, Mountain Crest, on the outskirts of Gilt Edge rather than his penthouse apartment in New York which is where Drey had expected to be moving. After that shock and seeing inside her new home for the first time another surprise is in store for Drey as her new husband mysteriously disappears on her wedding night leaving no clue to where he has gone or why. Drey starts to question her own sanity as crazy things start happening in her new fortress home situated right next to where Hawk lives. Hawk can’t resist coming to her rescue and he believes her. Just what is happening to her – and why? Where has her new husband disappeared to? Can she trust his brother, Jet, who just turns up out of the blue? There are definitely more questions than answers in this story and it is a real page turner as you seek to uncover the answers.

Interwoven into this is a second thread involving Billie Dee who is searching for the daughter she was forced to give up as a baby. There are hints, clues and discoveries to be made as the story progresses. I found it an intriguing read with great characters, unexpected humorous moments and very dramatic scenarios. It is a great read and works well as a standalone. I’ve only read one other book in this series so far but definitely intend catching up on the others when my tbr pile is lower. I’m very impressed with how the author manages to keep the reader on tenterhooks in this suspense filled story and I’ll definitely be looking out for more books by them in future.

I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.

Synopsis:

A bride becomes a target in New York Times bestselling author B.J. Daniels’s latest can’t-miss suspense

Tragedy sent Deidre “Drey” Hunter running from rancher Hawk Cahill and into the arms of a sleek businessman who promised her a new life. But dreams of Manhattan days and cosmopolitan nights shatter when he brings her back to an ultramodern paradise in her hometown of Gilt Edge—and vanishes on their wedding night.

Taunted by seclusion and silence, Drey starts to doubt everything…including her sanity. Only Hawk, the stubborn cowboy from her school days, believes the threats are real and that someone is ready to kill. But is he willing to forgive the past if it means ending her nightmare?

    Nice review Elaine. Sounds like a good story, nut #6 makes me not eager to start with this one.
