This is the first novel I have read by Karen Harper, and it will not be the last! The plot keeps you locked into the story, and the characters are sweet and real. You feel like your watching the story unfold while reading; that makes this a GREAT novel. At first I wasn't sure how I would feel about the novel because I have a selection of favorites already, but Harper is now with the favorable authors I already have! This novel is a great romantic thirller, and you find your self sliently applauding at the end! I reccomend this to anyone who likes the romantic thriller genre!

Kept me interested !

I had read the other reviews and thought I'd give it a try. I"m glad I did. While I could see the ending fairly early that did not stop me from enjoying the ride. And the twists and turns at the end were well written. Good read for a lazy afternoon!

    action-packed romantic suspense

    Finders Keepers private investigator Tara Kinsale awakens after months in a coma to a series of deep stress shockers. First she learns that her best friend Alexis was murdered. Second, that she had been named guardian of Alexis¿ daughter Claire as the father is a rat who deserted his then wife and child for another woman. Third Claire's uncle, Nick McMahon has arrived from military duty in Afghanistan to raise his niece. Fourth her own spouse divorced her and remarried. Finally, she learns from her doctor that she gave birth while in the coma. As Tara struggles to bring the parts together into a cohesive package, she agrees to help Nick and Claire become a family. She makes inquires into her lost nine months especially the infant she birthed, but some unknown person wants her to remain either ignorant or dead. --- This action-packed romantic suspense hooks the audience from the moment Tara opens her eyes to learn one stunner after another starting with the memory of how she became comatose until the final confrontation. The story line is fast-paced though at times overly angst laden with so much pressure on Tara. Still this is an exciting thriller as the past still haunts the heroine¿s present. --- Harriet Klausner

    Just okay....

    Read this book and I agree with a previous review...it was very predictable. The concept was good but I figured it out after the first few chapters. If your looking for an easy read, this is the book for you.

    Keeps you Reading

    This is one of those books you don't want to stop reading! You want to find out what happens. You could figure out some of the plot as you read but still wanted to find out how it all worked together. The author keeps the same pace throughout the book.

    A great thriller

    This book was so exciting and the plots were great. Kept you guessing till the end. Interesting part of this book was learning all about the family secrets and the lives they destroyed and how it ends up in the end. Worth the read..

    A quick read for a rainy day or any day.

    This book was not the best book I had read, but it was not the worse either. It was a quick easy read. I was extremely happy with the ending.
