Bestselling mystery writer Caitlin Bennett keeps to herself and a small group of friends. The seclusion of her chosen profession suits her. The one thing ruining her peace is a series of letters from a disturbed fan and the utter dismissal of her claim by the cops. When an attempt is made on Caitlins life, her editor hires ex-cop Connor Mac McKee to be her bodyguard.
Caitlin and Mac had met years before and it wasnt pleasant. Now, as theyre forced into close proximity while Mac moves into Caitlins apartment, the two must find a way to coexist.
When women begin turning up dead, all bearing a striking resemblance to Caitlin, they begin to realize that her fan is even more dangerous than they originally believed. And Mac knows he will do anything to keep Caitlin safe.
The very talented Ms. Sala once again manages to blend warm romance with chilling suspense and the result is one terrific read. (Nov., 384 pp., $6.50)
