A decade ago, eight-year-old Aubree Lansing peeked\r\rfrom her hiding place in the closet and saw the unthinkable:\r\ra dead body on her bedroom floor and a\r\rman standing close by with a gun in his bloodstained\r\rhands. A man she called daddy.
\r\rAubree_ã_s courageous testimony during the murder trial\r\rled to a hefty prison sentence for Stone Lansing — and placed a heavy weight on his daughter_ã_s heart.\r\rWhen Aubree_ã_s mother married Reginald Kern, one\r\rof Stone_ã_s former defense attorneys, and the new family\r\rwelcomed the birth of twins, it seemed that Aubree\r\rhad left her tragic past behind. But at age eighteen,\r\rher nightmare suddenly resumes: Stone Lansing\r\ris out of prison, and he_ã_s looking for the daughter\r\rwhose words sent him there. In the wake of a death\r\rthreat, Aubree flees with her twin half-siblings aboard\r\rthe cruise ship Stargazer and finds protection in the\r\rcare of its young sea captain. But there_ã_s more than\r\rone menace closing in on Aubree, as the cold tide of\r\rvengeance threatens to drag her under.

Clair does a great job of weaving a romance into a crime novel. He keeps us on our toes wondering what will happen next. No dull, boring, or drawn-out filler paragraphs.

I agree with Jill; the reader for the audio version wasn't good. I listened to the prologue and then switched over to the paperback. I'm so glad I did because I couldn't put it down. Poulson doesn't waste time building the suspense, he just jumps right in. There are a few grammatical errors and a couple of spots were the structure of the sentence felt strange, but other then that, it was a great read.

Very disappointed in the reader of this audio book. She makes the book sound like a cheap novel and because of that it is diffficult to want to hear more. We love Clair Poulson books but we're not sure we can even finish hearing the book. Is this a new reader for Covenant Communications? I have to ask, did anyone listen to this before it was sold to the public? We listen to lots and lots of audio books and this one I wouldn't recommend to anyone.
