RT Rating

Adams follows up her terrific debut with another tale of dark and twisted hate. Is it bad luck, a curse or a diabolical stalker who harms anyone involved with Torie? By including the villain's thought processes, Adams keeps both the creepy and danger quotients high. The protagonists have plenty of emotional baggage between them, which complicates any collaboration. Adams is quickly proving she's a talent on the fast track.

Since being stood up at the altar years ago by her fiance Todd, Torie Hagan's love life has been seemingly cursed. Anyone who gets near her suffers either an accident or death. Then Todd is found murdered in the church where he left her, and someone nearly kills Torie by firebombing her house.

Attorney Paul Jameson was Todd's best friend, and Torie assumes he despises her. However, Paul has always fought his attraction to Torie. Now a killer has both of them in his sights. Can Torie and Paul figure out who the vengeful killer
is before it is too late? (ZEBRA, Jun., 352

I found this book to be

I found this book to be dragged out & the characters unappealing. You could figure out who the bad guy was about a third of the way in because he was the only one it could be!
