New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts deftly blends romance and suspense in this compelling novel of a woman whose career, marriage, and very life are threatened by the truth about her own past.
 
Emma McAvoy may have grown up in the limelight, but some secrets are hidden in a darkness no light can reach. Now on the verge of a successful career, and having fallen in love with the man of her dreams, Emma is looking to the future. Yet it's the past that is about to catch up with her.
 
For Emma, her childhood had been almost like a rags-to-riches fairy tale--until the tragic night that changed her family forever. But what Emma thinks she knows about that terrible night and the man she's about to marry is only half the truth. The other half is locked away in the last place she'd ever think to look: her own memories. It's a mystery a handsome and relentlessly driven homicide detective needs to solve in a case that's haunted him for years--and a secret someone will kill to keep.

I am also not a big fan of N Roberts books, and I have been by passing her books for years. I read one of her books in 2013 and I like it so I decided to try another, now I am up to 7. Of the 7 I have to say I like Rising Tides) Sea Swept) and Homeport) but this book was the best of the 7. It was a really good read. This is how I like my story to be told. FyI All the books I read from her was given to me. I didn't purchase any of them.

I don't often read Nora Roberts because I find her books "hit or miss" but I enjoyed this one. The story takes place over a couple of decades and I like how the author didn't rush the growing-up of the main character. There was a mystery involved with a satisfying ending. My favourite series of the author's is the Gallaghers of Ardmore trilogy- if you haven't read them, try them!
