Enjoyable and sometimes even exciting story with well-developed characters and just enough plot twists to keep you guessing most of the way. Would definitely recommend this book to those who enjoy mysteries and a bit of the paranormal; and the current (free) price makes it even better!

"Best Story In This Series"
What did you like best about this story?
This book had me completely fooled. All the twists and turns and false leads. Oh my!

What does Laura Jennings bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Each narrator I've listened to that has performed this series has been amazing. Each brought their unique perspective to the stories. This narrator caused a lot of weird vivid dreams where I felt like Alice jumping down the rabbit hole. I don't know

I really enjoyed the creative concept of this book. The characters and the plot are quite interesting.

The writing, however, falls a bit short. It seemed like it needed a bit more editing to flesh out some areas and tailor back some. Also, Jake's character was very inconsistent. At times, Kyra/Zoey is also inconsistent. It made it difficult to believe in them.

There were times where I was questioning details (there was a claim about autism that seemed like it was out of place, as in it

Second book I've enjoyed by this author

Almost put it down over the r word, but I bravely powered through. She tossed that word around awfully cavalierly, though, which bugged me. But the characters and story kept me interested so I'll be downloading another book of hers soon

Zoey Kincaid is newly engaged to a newspaper reporter Jake. Zoey receives a letter telling her that her Mother (who has been dead for
all of Zoey's life)has left a key to a lockbox and has left something for Zoey to have but must retrieve it before she turns 29.

Zoey is not really Zoey (you will find out who she really is)She changed her name because of a man stalking her and has moved to another state.

Zoey is going to get the key, but in the meantime, she finds out that she pregnant. She's happy

intertwined--but who wants kyra/zoey dead...

there is some violence but not enough that I couldn't recommend this book to teens as well as adults...the plot twists and turns are the biggest draw for this story...zoey is such a likeable young woman, knows where she's going and who she wants to take with her...even being pregnant with her love's child, whom he doesn't want, can't stop zoey from traveling around to settle whether her mother's s foretelling becomes reality or just the rantings of a w

A fascinating and exciting story with engaging characters. All the plot twists and turns just drag you into the story and won't let you go. It's amazing how some authors become one of your favorites just by reading one book. I enjoy reading mysteries and paranormal stories, I think Anne is a great writer, really enjoyed her writing style, the book was well edited, plot was interesting and believable, characters engaging; what's not to like?! I encourage you to give her books a try, I think you'l ...more

Despite its strong dependence on paranormal elements, this turned out to be an entertaining listen. The author managed to weave a suspenseful story around
foretelling and reincarnation with a surprising twist at the end. The characters were developed well enough to bring at least a little realism to the story
and Laura Jennings gave voice to these characters with a more than satisfactory performance. I didn't think this was this author's best book, but it was
still very much a worthwhile listen.

I hate to leave a negative review, but I could not finish this book. The plot set-up and the main character's reaction to it were just too illogical for me to get past, so I gave up about a third of the way in. That being said, the writing was fantastic and I really wanted to like it (interesting plot idea, great writing, cool characters), so I'll probably leave it on my Kindle to revisit on a long flight at some point in the future. Maybe it will grow on me later.
