Julie Prentice and her family move across the country to the idyllic Mount Adams district of Cincinnati, hoping to evade the stalker who’s been terrorizing them ever since the publication of her bestselling novel, The Murder Game. Since Julie doesn’t know anyone in her new town, when she meets her neighbor John Dunbar, their instant connection brings measured hope for a new beginning. But she never imagines that a simple, benign conversation with him could set her life spinning so far off course.
After a series of misunderstandings, Julie and her family become the target of increasingly unsettling harassment. Has Julie’s stalker found her, or are her neighbors out to get her, too? As tension in the neighborhood rises, new friends turn into enemies, and the results are deadly.
Catherine McKenzie is a fellow Canadian and was one of the first authors I read when I started blogging and I loved her writing style right off. As I was looking through her list of books I see I have several to catch up on. I can still remember this book and being pulled fully into the characters lives which is something Catherine McKenzie excels at. If you haven’t read any of her books yet, you should. You won’t regret it!
