Overview

A GROWING OBSESSION.

Darcy Mayhew, a recently widowed young mother, relocates to New York City to pursue her career as an investigative journalist for the New York Times. On her first day on the job, she meets Joe Coffin, an ordinary young man who hails from her hometown of Martha's Vineyard, and agrees to accompany him to lunch. But one lunch with Joe quickly turns into a series of unwanted gifts, midnight phone calls, and even several break-ins.

AN ESCALATING THREAT.

Joe's fixation begins to threaten Darcy's job, her friendships, and even her family. She goes to the police, only to realize how powerless she is in the face of a stalker who hasn't officially done anything worthy of a night in jail. So when Joe attacks someone very close to Darcy, it's up to her alone to bring down the worst threat she has ever had to face.

IF HE CAN’T HAVE HER, NO ONE WILL.

Darcy is a widowed journalist with a stalker she can't shake and a son she wants to protect. She has a new boyfriend and her stalker isn't too happy about that. This is a well-writen novel in a way you rarely see in so-called thrillers. Really loved it. Couldn't put it down. Highly recommended.

A review should just be a few simple sentences and a general statement..did you enjoy the book? Was it worth the money? Maybe a comment in terms of other authors a person reading this book may enjoy. Stop with giving the suspence away and plot spoiling! Makes me furious. You would think publishers or b&n would take complaints more seriously since now that the review i just read ruined the chance of me buying/reading a book!

Not my cup of tea. Started reading it but gave it up for something else. I do like the author and have enjoyed others she's written.

This was a good book, except it became a bit frustrated, I was like can't anybody stop this stalker from killing and kidnapping people. The police seemed ineffective, they should have posted a survielience at the stalkers apartment. It took the victim to finally stop him instead of the police. I would recommend. This writer did a descent job. Good writing style, good vocabulary.
