Natalie is taking a personal safety course. She understands so much more now, her awareness of her surroundings has increased two hundred per cent. But the gun frightens her. Sam, her instructor, knows how to turn the fear into respect for the weapon; Natalie still doesn't think she could actually shoot anyone. But she can't shake the feeling she is being watched, followed. Her life to this point had left her believing she was a type of victim; she won't accept that now - she has a 6 year old daughter to keep safe. So she goes to a job she hates every day, editing manuals is boring but at least she has a steady paycheck. And Mark, the strange man in the cubicle across the aisle, can be annoying with his staring and his silence. Natalie is trying to be nice to him, when she suddenly needed help one day he had been there for her but he isn't an easy person to thank. Then Natalie's life becomes more complicated...

This is an interesting story twisting and turning along it's way. The handgun issue figures prominently, as does gun safety. As someone with a schizoid view on this subject, the book presents an intriguing look at why some people prefer to be armed.

The author does choose some extremes - Natalie's love interest for example. The story works, but it is not subtle.

And when you read this book I defy you to not burst out laughing near the end - it is great. Enjoy.
