Jacob Reese enjoys the quiet life, running a coffee shop and renting out his cottage in The Hollows, Vermont.
But the calm is shattered when a woman who looks eerily similar to his ex-girlfriend Laura turns up to stay in the cottage, and leaves a mysterious note in the guest book.
Now Jacob’s seeing Laura everywhere—a glimpse of her face across the street, her music box left outside his house, a gift he gave her years before hanging from the trees.
But it can’t be Laura. Because Laura’s dead.
Someone knows Jacob’s secret—what really happened the night Laura died—and they’re out for revenge…
My Review :
This was one of those books that had me in such a state of suspense that I was tempted to read the ending about 2/3 of the way through. (I didn’t though!)
Jacob Reese is basically living my dream life – he owns a cottage in a small town where he lives with his dog – and oh yeah, is the owner and operator of a coffee shop. Sounds pretty idyllic to me.
But, that’s not where this story ends. Not even close. As we learn more about his past we learn that even though he’s got it seemingly made now, there’s always a broader picture.
Murder, infatuation and dognapping(!) all come to play a role in this novel.
If you love a fast paced, nervous snacking, sitting on the edge of your seat book – then this is for you!
