tense romantic suspense

Knowing how lethally dangerous her affluent influential husband Peter Danning is as he has killed two previous wives and not desiring to be next when he finally goes over the edge with her, Lorraina Ann with help from her friend Janet arranges for her death on a ship at sea to fool him when he searches for her. Rainie Ann no longer exists as Anna Pritchard is born. Besides altering her appearance, Anna plans to disappear to isolated tiny Crystal Falls, Oregon.
---
In the small town, Anna obtains work as a bookkeeper at Parker Harrigan's horse ranch. However, Parker believes his new employee is not just hiding secrets, but concealing her identity for whatever reason. As their attraction grows, Anna fears it because she knows all she can give to her beloved employer and his extended family is death if her psychopathic spouse finds her in Crystal Falls.
---
The third of the five Harrigan siblings romantic suspense tales (see MORNING LIGHT and SUN KISSED) is an exhilarating tale that refreshes the theme of a woman in peril from her insane but connected husband (think of Roberts-Bergen in Sleeping with the Enemy). The story line is fast-paced from the moment Rainie Ann no longer exists and Anna Pritchard with her Elvira wig does. Fans will enjoy the latest Harrigan saga as the besieged brave woman and the readers know the maniacal predator is coming for her.

This book followed the same pattern as all of her other books. She has done the spousal abuse/deranged busband thing at least twice before. This story is not original; only the names have changed. I think this will be my last CA book. I am tired of investing in the same story retold with a new title.

Additionally, making her vet character against spaying/neutering was wrong on so many levels I can't even get into it without seeing red.

    another winner

    I love Catherine Anderson's Kendrick/Coutler/Harrigan series, and this was another winner! I couldn't put the book down, I loved reading about Rainie and Parker and their interactions. It is a very touching book, I felt Rainie's terror of her ex-husband and felt happy with how she was welcomed into the Harrigan family.

    This was a really good story

    I checked out this book because I thought it looked like a good read, and I was right. I read this in a matter of days...could not put it down. I like how Parker not only offered to protect Rainie, but he also gave her self-confidence and made it his goal to help her learn how to defend herself. The romance was slow to start, which was actually a good thing considering what Rainie had gone through, and Parker was great at being so patient with her, but once it got started, things heated up pretty quickly. (steamy, even) The ending, of course I won't spoil it, but it had me on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. My only complaint? The way Parker talked annoyed me after a while, but he's such a sweet guy so I'll forgive him! Great book, check it out :)

    A good book

    The style of writing is undeniably catherine anderson but its a new twist to escaping spousal abuse. The story touches you to the core and you can't help but feel for rainie or cheer her on as she goes on this journey of self discovery
