Overview

When her dying father confesses that he is not her biological father -- and that he has a twin -- Washington, D.C., morning news anchor Ellery O'Brien is desperate for answers. Plagued by a recurring nightmare in which a blood-covered woman who has been stabbed repeatedly by a killer, staggers down the staircase of a beautiful old house, Ellery travels to her late mother's hometown -- Agarita Springs, Texas -- not realizing until she arrives that she has rented the very house she sees in her dreams. No one in town wants to dig up the past, but rancher Clint Littleton begins to help Ellery and white-hot attraction sparks between them. The nightmares, however, persist. And each time, before Ellery awakes, she sees an increasingly terrifying image: just a little more of the killer's face. . .

New York Times bestselling author Elaine Coffman switches gears with pulse-pounding results in her first novel of heart-stopping romantic suspense.

    Pieces seem to be missing

    The premise is good, the story line is even better but the execution is a bit disjointed. Things referred to as going to happen 'later' or 'tomorrow' don't happen with no explanation (dinner missed, trip to the police station scheduled for morning doesn't happen) and the story jumps ahead days and even weeks with referbacks to things that HAVE happened but the reader isn't aware of their happening until the characters talk about them. It felt like my copy of the book was missing a bunch of pages. Overall the story was good but I kept paging back to see if I had missed something only to find I hadn't.

    Couldn't guess who the killer was...

    Love Elaine's books and found her first suspense gripping to the very end. The story line was fresh and believable and the execution excellent with great characters, memorable one-liners and a pace that increased with each page I read. First time I've ever guessed the wrong person to be the killer. Loved it
