Secret, betrayal, and a mysterious family history plague the heroine in the latest novel from New York Times-bestselling author Karen Robards.
The past is never over. It just gets dusty.
Lisa Shewmaker was a rising star in a prestigious law firm in Lexington, Kentucky; that is, until the firm went bankrupt and she lost her job. With an ailing mother to care for, Lisa ta...more
I've been reading Karen Robards since not long after I started reading romance. She has some really great romantic suspense books, but unfortunately, her last few books have been subpar, in my opinion. And honestly, I considered this book her last chance at keeping me reading her new releases. Did she win me back? Probably not.
After lawyer Lisa Grant loses her job when the firm she works for goes belly-up, she decides to return to her hometown of Lexington, Kentucky and he ...more
While researching some cold case files, Lisa Grant, assistant reviewer to D. ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed this romantic suspense by Robards. The plotting is well done and I like both main characters. The mystery defies solution for most of the book. I could almost figure it out, but a few details prove elusive. The author does withhold one clue until the end, but it was necessary for the story.
Robards weaves all the parts of the story together, including the mutual history of Lisa and Scott ...more

What a pleasant surprise from an author that has been a hit and miss with me. There were niggles, just a couple, so I'll get them over and done with first:
Lisa, the supposedly hotshot young lawyer with a Boston law firm, now lowly researcher for DA, Scott Buchanan, came across as a bit of a ditz at first, then later, as merely beautiful, rich, trophy-wife material. She's supposed to be a lawyer from a prestigious Boston law firm ...more
i think my biggest problem with this book is that i never felt like i had a choice in speculating on the connection between lisa and the garcias because from the onset, when strange things started happening to lisa, she immediately connected it with the garcia case when she doesn't even know them or anything about the case except that she looked like them.
second problem is that the story focused more on the love story between lisa and the guy and the various accidents and attempt ...more
Not sure she set up the final twist carefully enough, but unlike FIGHT CLUB, I won't be re-reading this to look for foreshadowing...good summer fare. Now I have my guilt-pleasure reading for ...more
I also got tired of how often Lisa had cold shivers. It really could have been better but then again, I did skip some pa ...more
Non potendo tornare al proprio lavoro a Boston si vede costretta a chiedere aiuto a Scott, un ragazzo che conosce da quando aveva sedici anni e quest’ultimo sembra accettare, ma solo per far piacere alla madre di lei.
Durante una giornata di lavoro, dopo esser stata messa in “punizi ...more
The mystery and romance didnt seem to have a smooth balance in this one for me. Lisa and Scott were hot together but it just didnt flow with the suspense as much as I had hoped. Not my favorite of her books
For this, Lisa loses her job and returns to her home town to take care of her ALS stricken mother. Long story short, she ends up researching an old case about a missing family, with a member who looks exactly like herself. Now for the story, ...more
