More than 17 years ago, Jordan Sloan's father was brutally slain by one of his former employees. Based on Jordan's testimony, Dan Mallory was convicted of murder and sentenced to prison. Jordan became a psychologist, but never fully recovered from her fathers murder. She married photographer Robert Falconer and together they had a daughter, Lilly.
Then Robert has an affair and he and Jordan separate. Neither files for divorce, spurring 17-year-old Lilly's hopes that her parents will reunite. She is madly in love with her own boyfriend, Cooper Davis.
When red roses, the symbolic calling card left behind at her fathers murder scene, are anonymously sent to Jordan on her birthday, she is horrified. Its a vivid reminder of her father's death. She is also frightened when she learns that Dan Mallory has recently been paroled. All indications are that Dan was rehabilitated while in prison, but Jordan knows differently. The problem is getting anyone else to believe her.
Internet sensation M.J. Rose is back with a new emotional drama. However, after a very interesting set-up, I found I was not especially hooked with either the unfolding story or the characters as they developed. (Jan., 368 pp., $13.95)
