Very promising start with very little build-up, simple writing style, and okay characters. The stalker's identity was too easy to figure out and even though this was a shorter story, it felt like a longer book due to the angsty main characters and handful of side characters thrown in.

►Cutest lines?

“Don’t let the persona fool you.” Lydia leaned closer to the older man. “There are horns holding up this halo.”

I enjoyed reading this mystery story involving Lydia. Also the romance she starts when she meets Matthew, the new pastor at her church. The story line is will written and I had to find out how it ended. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.

Ms. Bain sure knows how to keep a reader in suspense...and knows how to tug at the heart, too! From the start of the story, the author keeps you on the edge of your seat, as scared and worried about Lydia as the heroine is for herself. This story is also full of unexpected lessons in human nature and all its weaknesses. Not judging is so hard when we believe that what we see is all there is. This is a great story full of heart and wisdom. I loved it!

The book is great. It starts strong and doesn't stop. The writing is excellent and easy to get into. The development of Lydia, her history and her new-found love interest keep your attention throughout. Combined with the twists as to who is terrorizing her, you don't want to put the book down...and then you're sorry it's over when you turn the last page. I truly look forward to her next book and future as an author. ...more

As usual,,Kathyn J. Bain has brought a non stop thriller.
I loved the characters of Lydia and Matthew and their romance.
All the characters worked well together to give us a cohesive story.
We see God' grace and mercy working throughout the book.
Thanks for the advance copy and in exchange I am giving my honest review.
