|Skye Lynne Holdron is living with a secret she cannot forget, one that gives her nightmares and causes her to suffer panic attacks. Something happened back in 1989 and until she deals with it, the suffering will continue. Now, at the present time, she quits her job and, together with a friend, Cammie, opens her own decorating firm. Right from the start, Skye suffers break-ins and attacks, all of which can be traced back something that happened to her in 1989. Eventually these incidents involve not only her and her husband, Lawrence, but his brother and his wife, Skye's sister, and others. Will she be able to save her life and her fledgling firm?
I liked this a lot. At first, the jumping around between several couples disturbed me, the first of which involved Lawrence's brother and his wife. Eventually, however, the reasoning became clear as the author wove these people into the story in a beautiful and very satisfying manner. The love scenes, which involve all the couples, are sensuous and nicely done.
The characters and their settings are clear and described in a beautiful manner. It is easy to see them, to put yourself where they are, whether it be Sunny Florida, North Carolina or Chicago.
Skye's fears appear throughout the story, gradually escalating until she must deal with them. The man causing the original tragedy, and now the current harassment and attacks on her person, portrayed with a gradually escalating hatred toward Skye, shows this by his increasingly devastating attacks. The characters' problems and their recognition of such are well depicted, with the end results being poignant and very satisfying.
This book kept my interest until the very satisfying end, bringing to a conclusion the problems depicted for every one of the couples and, of course the correct ending for the one creating the havoc. I would definitely read another book by this author.
