Many thanks to Justine and publisher Harlequin Books for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Whoa!! Talk about a sleight of the hand, and it is author Seraphina Nova Glass who came to my forebrain. The subtle clues and blind alleys all spoke of a socked mind which could think of such a plot.
A psychologist with a best seller book on how to escape the predator, Faith soon found her life turned upside down. A wrongful charge, missing husband, suspicious cops, and threatening notes tightened the noose around her neck. A race against time to save herself, she had to find the starting point which was the end too.
My first book by this talented author, I loved being led down a merry path. The writing turned darker with each chapter, suspense coating the words. Faith was absolutely unreliable, I couldn’t trust her. How would the cops?
I did don my Detective’s hat to get to the perp who was playing games, but Ms. Glass played me well. I was left dithering over my choices, then realized the best way to be right was to suspect everyone.
I love it when the plotlines and red herrings keep me stuck to my kindle despite a narcissistic heroine. Certain subplots could have been polished more. But that didn’t distract me much from the story.
Complexed nuances of other characters were etched well with their secrets hidden. The story read fast in the latter half where the suspense was at a high cusp. Wanting to know the identity of the perp kept me glued to my kindle.
Overall an entertaining read, I enjoyed it before my afternoon siesta. Off to bed, now.
I received a ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

She wrote the book on escaping a predator… Now one is coming for her.
Faith Finley has it all: she’s a talented psychologist with a flourishing career, a bestselling author and the host of a popular local radio program, Someone’s Listening, with Dr. Faith Finley. She’s married to the perfect man, Liam Finley, a respected food critic.
Until the night everything goes horribly wrong, and Faith’s life is shattered forever.
Liam is missing—gone without a trace—and the police are suspicious of everything Faith says. They either think she has something to hide, or that she’s lost her mind.
And then the notes begin to arrive. Notes that are ripped from Faith’s own book, the one that helps victims leave their abusers. Notes like “Lock your windows. Consider investing in a steel door.”
As the threats escalate, the mystery behind Liam’s disappearance intensifies. And Faith’s very life will depend on finding answers.
