Rachel Carpenter was a former soap actress, now a divorcee and a single parent to 3 daughters. She is very down to earth and genuine and I enjoyed how the author had written about the day to day life with her 3 daughters and it's very easily relatable without feeling being overwhelmed. Since her divorce and the death of her ex husband, she has been focussed in managing her book store as well as her children that she hadn't had time for herself. While she was out for lunch with her sister Gracie, she met with Nolan, Gracie's current boyfriend and Kane his colleague. For some reason, she couldn't take her eyes off Kane and the attraction was mutual. Kane is a detective currently on leave after an incident at work which left him feeling emotionally drained. Being a divorcee himself, he isn't looking to be in another relationship but with Rachel, he couldn't seem to control the feelings he's having for her. Rachel and Kane's feelings developed further when she brought her daughters to a wilderness camp which is run by Kane's brother Jed and in which Kane is temporarily helping out. While at camp, there were a couple of occasions when Rachel felt the chills in her spine but she dismissed those feelings as paranoia. Unbeknownst to her, someone is indeed watching. He has been watching Rachel for years ever since he first laid eyes on her soap opera and with each day that Rachel is getting closer to Kane, he is getting frustrated and is determined to show her that he is the only man for her. This book is by a new to me author and I must say I was pleasantly surprised to have enjoyed it so much that I finished the book in a few hours. The characters are easily connectable and well written including the children. There is a build up in the romance which speaks of the maturity of the two main leads and Rachel's responsibility as a mother. In whatever she does, her daughters are her first priority. The suspense increased in intensity as the story developed. You get a glimpse of what goes on in the mind of the obsessed stalker and it gets chilling enough that you feel as if you're watching a movie. I did however feel that the ending could have been better and with an epilogue included. Many thanks to Netgalley and Kensington Books for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book can be read in the same room with junior high age kids and the reader doesn't have to worry if they read over the shoulder. Character dynamics reflect normal life interactions. The suspense is enough to be interesting without stressing the reader out. I enjoyed this book and plan to read more of the series.

Jannine Gallant Makes All The Right Moves in EVERY MOVE SHE MAKES! I really liked this book! It dealt with the real life issues of what it is like to bring a man into your life when you have children. Kane is a definite hottie and Rachel is a confident heroine who has her head put together. There are a lot of likely suspects to make you wonder who did it and the story is paced well. The portions from the bad guy's point of view were well-written and chilling. Lark, Rachel's teenaged daughter, is appropriately a pain in the derriere. Having had a similar problem when my mom remarried, I could identify. The ending was well-done, a real nail-biter. AND she used song lyrics in the title! Clever! And for a woman who loves her rock and roll, it really drew me to it! Good job, Ms. Gallant!

Liked all the characters. Just disappointed the leading man was dumbed down to extend the story.

Very so-so book. The story was fine but the writing really needed some work. Very blah without any fun dialogue or more interesting characters. I'm glad I didn't pay much for it.
