Her pursuer is a man who is already dead.
Who doesn’t love a good stalker book? And this one has it all.
Most of the action is set in a remote village in France, and the description of locale is lovely. We have the tense elements of a thriller and the softer side of blossoming romance—but nothing comes without conflict.
Jaime is a character that you can’t help but like. She’s sassy and her fist encounter with the ravishing—but aloof priest is less than reverent after a case of mistaken identity.
Jaime is safe—but not for long and the climax of the book is fast-paced, and will have you on the edge of your seat.
