This is the fourth installment of Melinda Leigh's She Can series. If you enjoy action, mystery and romance in your stories then this is a series for you. This story stands alone so you don't have to read the first three. But they are just as good as this one…so don’t miss out. I really enjoyed this story. Melinda Leigh kept me guessing who the killer was and why they wanted Addy dead. I can't wait to see what Ms. Leigh will bring us next.
Abby Foster left Atlantic City and moved to Westbury. All she wants is a normal life and to forget what happened to her. Two years ago Abby was kidnapped and left in an abandoned well. She was there for two weeks and if not for the water at the bottom of the well, she would have died. Abby has a job she loves teaching at the local high school. She leaves school and the next thing she knows is that she is waking up in her SUV in the middle of the nearly frozen river. It seems that someone is determined to finish what was started two years ago.
Officer Ethan Hale is on his way back to the police station when he comes upon the accident scene. It looks like a SUV has ran off the road and into the river. When he sees a woman in the water he drives in to rescue her. Abby tells Ethan she doesn't know how she ended up in the river. As Ethan investigate the accident he feels that Abby is hiding some important information from him.
Abby trusted the police when she was kidnapped and that got her nowhere. When the people connected to Abby's kidnapping start turning up dead Abby has no choice but to trust Ethan. Will Ethan be able to protect Abby form an unknown killer?
From the moment Officer Ethan Hale pulls Abby Foster from icy waters, he senses there’s more to her than meets the eye. Abby has no memory of the accident that submerged her car in the frozen river. Three years ago, Abby was kidnapped and abandoned in a well for a week. The botched police investigation nearly killed her. Abby had moved to the mountains of Pennsylvania for a fresh start, but when it becomes clear that this car crash wasn’t an accident, she knows the violence from her past has caught up with her.
But Abby’s former assailant was convicted and imprisoned, so who else wants her dead?
Ethan uncovers a fresh string of murders tied to Abby’s past. Someone is trying to kill her, and this time the stalker seems determined to finish the task. As the killer grows bolder, Abby begins to trust Ethan enough to share the truth, her heart, and her life. But to stop the murders, Ethan must make a decision that could jeopardize it all.
