| GOODREADS | MY RATING: ♥ ♥ ♥|
Goodreads synopsis: It was a desperate plan. But Mary Grace Winters knew the only way to save herself and her child from her abusive cop husband was to stage their own death. Now all that remains of their former life is at the bottom of a lake. Armed with a new identity in a new town, she and her son have found refuge hundreds of miles away. As Caroline Stewart, she has almost forgotten the nightmare she left behind nine years ago. She is even taking a chance on love with Max Hunter, a man with wounds of his own. But her past is about to collide with the present when her husband uncovers her trail and threatens her hard-won peace. Step by step, he’s closing in on her—and everything and everyone she loves.
I have read quite a few books by Karen Rose now and I have to say that this one is probably the one I like the least so far. I did enjoy it even though it got on my nerves. It is over exaggerated and the bad man was so overdone that in the end it bored me. The main character is whining and meek even though she was supposed to be the strongest women of them all. I really like some of the side characters though and an romantic suspense is usually a good read for me even though it is repetitive and predictable.
I know Karen Rose can do so much better so I’m in no means put off to continue reading her books. This one is just going to be placed in the “not so memorable” pile.
