About the Book
Alana Candler is on someone’s hit list. But why? A stalker is breathing down her neck at every turn, hiding in the shadows, waiting for her to make a mistake to freeze long enough for him to make his hit. When the stalker kidnaps her from a hotel and leaves her to die, Jaydn Holbrook, CEO and owner of the largest company in Tennessee, saves her life and promises to protect her. Jaydn’s high school friendship with Brad, Alana’s brother and the City’s Police Chief, gives him incentive to protect Alana and shelter her from the growing danger. Alana’s trust in God’s protection intrigues him and compels him to explore her faith further, but when she mentions her aversion to rich, executive-type bosses, Jaydn keeps his position at his company secret trying not to destroy their fragile bond. As tensions build, Jaydn and Alana are caught up in a dangerous web of hiding from the pursuer trying to kill them and fighting the attraction they feel for each other. While Brad scrambles to find her stalker and Jaydn struggles to keep her safe, Alana searches her memory to find the motive someone might have for murder.

Joanie is a new author to me, and I am very critical of mysteries. I have a certain way I expect them to go, and can be harsh on authors who do not meet that criteria. I am happy to report that I loved this book! It was full of depth, emotion, mystery, plot twists, action, and suspense. All great characteristics of a great mystery novel to me.
I have to admit, at first I almost felt the way others did about Alana, maybe she really was imagining all these things happening. Her stories didn’t add up to the facts. But then things just kept happening. I thought I had the answers from the beginning, but boy I was wrong, and I love a surprise like that!!
I can’t wait to read the next book from Joanie. I hope it has as many surprises as this one! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review which I have given.
