Tia Parker always seems to fall for the wrong guy. But when she meets Evan Spence at a friend's wedding, it seems like she's finally found Mr. Right. Their spark is undeniable, but reality may extinguish any hope for a future: they are separated by thousands of miles. As the couple struggles with the pitfalls of pursuing romance long-distance, Tia is taken off guard by a new arrival in town. Colby Farren is handsome and charming and has made it clear he's interested in Tia. Yet despite his obvious infatuation, Tia can't seem to get Evan out of her mind. Caught between the attention of two very different men, her complicated love life is soon eclipsed by much more sobering concerns. A break-in at her apartment is just the first in a series of bizarre events, each bringing her one step closer to a dangerous liaison. And knowing who to trust could be a matter of life and death.

My Review: 4 Stars
October always puts me in the mood for a great suspense--especially when it's a book by this author. The story starts out fairly gentle, yet I knew there was an underlying dark current. Even though I knew what was coming, I was still caught off guard, and for me, that made it even better.

Tia is a competent and capable woman, although she is always running late. In fact, that's exactly what brought her and Evan together. The romance in this story started out almost immediately, yet the connection gradually builds, giving it a very authentic feel. Evan is a very compassionate man and his fascination with Tia was so sweet. I loved seeing glimpses of characters from a previous book.

The subtle escalation of events carried me away and even had me glancing over my shoulder, especially at the climax of the suspense. The bad guy in this one is definitely crazy and gave me the creeps.

One especially fun note is that we have friends who live near this area and we went to visit a few years ago, so it was very easy for me to picture the setting of the story. I was completely transported to Arizona for a few hours and even though I was freaked out, I loved it.

Content: mild violence; mild+ creepiness; mild romance
