Overview

Dear Ellen,

I miss you terribly, and I'm sorry you're dead. I wish it weren't my fault.

Karin Sommers's sister had died while helping Karin escape from the con man who'd entrapped her. But Ellen wouldn't die in vain. Acting on instinct, Karin took over Ellen's identity and home--and thought she'd found a safe haven.

Then P.I. Dave Hunter arrived, demanding "Ellen's" help, and Karin discovered that her sister had secrets of her own. With a missing boy's life at stake, could Karin fake her way one last time--and expose the truth about a deadly predator in a world where only the best liars survived?

Karin Sommers decides to go straight after a life as a con artist, but to succeed she knows she must flee her stepfather, She also realizes she needs help so she turns to her half-sister Ellen, who gladly assists her beloved sibling. Alas a happy ending escapes them when Ellen dies in a car accident.---- Karin becomes Ellen to hide from her stepfather and to avoid arrest as there is now a warrant out on her. One year later investigator Dave Hunter finds her and, thinking she is Ellen, demands she help him locate an abducted boy snatched by her former boyfriend, a probable child molester. Karin agrees to help him though it risks her cover. However, what she fears most is her attraction to the obviously intelligent detective who if she reveals the truth will surely take her in as he is ethical by the book.------ The key to this action-packed thriller is Karin who feels guilt over Ellen¿s death, but shock once she learns her half-sister whom she placed on a pedestal had some dark secrets too. While the plot focuses on a desperate attempt to rescue the child and to a degree on the attraction between the sleuth and the woman in hiding, the tale¿s refreshing angle is the emotions of the heroine. Karin is a terrific center to an action-packed thriller.----- Harriet Klausner

I liked the action of this book. Kept my attention from start to finish. Could have done with out the sex parts though. Not sure why authors today think they need to always include these....leave the readers their imagination...geez! Mostly loved the book though and the ending.

I, who am so overprotective of my books, passed this along to my friend immediately after finishing. It was that good. Great story line, great characters, believable action, unexpected yet believable plot twists & turns. The Bombshell line does a pretty good job of picking books that fit that description, and I am a fan!!
