Overview

She didn't want to need him.

Murder brought self-help guru Rachel de Luca and Detective Mason Brown together. Their shared secrets drove them apart. But now they're together again in this riveting novella that begins where New York Times bestselling author Maggie Shayne's Sleep with the Lights On ended.

She may have been blind for twenty years, but Rachel's always had an uncanny gift for seeing through people—and she distrusts her assistant's new boyfriend at first sight. Amy isn't interested in Rachel's misgivings, though. She's too eager to celebrate Thanksgiving by introducing her family to the new man in her life.

Then Amy doesn't show up for the holiday….

Desperate to find her missing friend, Rachel has no choice but to turn to Mason. Their investigation into Amy's disappearance takes them ever deeper into danger—and reignites the attraction that they've both sworn to resist. Now it's a race against time as these reluctant partners fight to stave off passion and save a life.

Look for Wake to Darkness, the next installment in this suspenseful series, coming in December from Harlequin MIRA and Maggie Shayne.

I preordered this book and eagerly awaited it. I was so disappointed. No where on the cover or in the overview was a mention that this book was a short story. I do not think it is a prequel, as at the end, it makes a pitch for the next installment, which costs $3.99. I wonder, since it stated "installment," if that means it is a short story also? This book is extremely violent and very, very gory. There is a lot of cursing. The plot, while a bit different from most murder mysteries is very disturbing. The end almost made me ill and I like intense murder mysteries. The ending also did not bring much resolution to the story. The introduction of Shayne's newest heroine and this series is off to a rocky start in my opinion. I will give it a star for editing and one for originality. I seriously doubt, I will purchase any more of Shayne's books. I feel as if I was taken advantage of. Because this book is so violent, gory, and disturbing, I recommend it for adults only. AD

I love the characters in this series. Rachel is always "thinking" the same things i would think, like 'who wouldnt want the donut' or about how yummy Mason is. Maggie Shayne is a great author with great stories to tell. I highly recomend all of her books!

Short & sweet, it's the perfect transition novella to bridge Sleep with the Lights On and Wake to Darkness. Rachel & Mason have got some terrific chemistry. Maggie's delivered another great read!

Even though this was a short story it didn't disappoint. I am really loving this series by Maggie Shayne and I can't wait for the next book to come out so that I can have more of this story that she has created. You could easily read this one without the first book but reading the first will make it SO much better!

Refreshingly different and well written. And what a pleasure not to have to deal with jarring dropped prepositions and/or bad grammar! Will definitely be checking out books by this wonderful author. Kitt :)

This is a 70 page free adult novella that should be read after #2 in this series as it is a lead-in to #3. Great writing with mystery, a romance, and snarky humor.
