In Manhattan, advertising account manger Peyton Somerset is close to forty when her doctor informs her she is pregnant. The father of her unborn wants nothing to do with a child so they break up as the single mom to be plans to raise the child as her own though she has fears and doubts. --- Needing watermelon, Peyton arrives at the store but does not have enough money. The next customer on line researcher Thomas Reilly buys the fruit for her and walks her home although Peyton worries about this kind stranger being a killer because this is New York and not her home town of Talbot Corners, Kansas. As she goes deeper into her pregnancy, Peyton begins to wonder if someone has been inside her apartment several times as things just seem slightly off kilter. She wonders if New York City has made her gone native; paranoid that someone is stalking her. Peyton wonders if that someone could be Thomas who seems to be around a lot. When she learns that the paranoid sometimes are right, it may prove too late as trimester pregnant females are the target of a serial killer. --- This frightening tale will leave readers saying no way throughout the reading, but at the end realize with some of the headline atrocities in the news yes way. The story line grips the audience switching between the killer and several pregnant women (the above paragraphs highlights one key potential victim) so that the audience sees various perspectives. Wendy Corsi Staub writes a frightening suspense thriller that grabs the attention of the audience with the comparison of a matricidal serial killer vs. pregnant victims going through the months of what should be joyful occasions.--- Harriet Klausner

Steal from the Rich Give to the Poor
Someone thinks it isn't fair that these unwed mothers are pregnant when there are infertile COUPLES who want children and can provide a child with a Mother AND Father.......... This book was very quick paced. Staub's writing style is compared to Mary Higgins Clark and I would say this one would be enjoyed by Clark fans.
