The characters are well developed and the setting description makes you want to visit Washington state! There are even some unexpected plot twists along the way. I got so engrossed in the story I couldn’t put it down towards the end. I enjoyed this book and definitely recommend it to others!
Roberts earlier work...needs work.
This wasn't mind-grabbing. This story didn't drag you in. Noah, as a character wasn't that interesting & neither was Olivia. Both, terribly boring. No one really cares about the many types of trees in the forest or their detailed descriptions either. We get it...the forest is lovely.
You knew the guy who supposedly did it...did not.
The one you guessed committed the crime probably did. Then, amazingly enough, you find out you were correct! Score!
Then, it's over and you're like "Gah! I could have read a much better book."
In this story a starlet is murdered by her celebrity husband. Leaving behind the main character of this story, a 4 year old child, to deal with the repercussions.
The writing makes it an easy read. And the author excels in giving vivid descriptions. But multiple scenes are repetitive to the point of predictability between the main character and the love interest.
Even though, in the beginning I cared about the romance between the leads. After the idea that the main character is "hard to get" was established, the push and pull between the leads gets tiring. By the end, I was just over them. With no lasting impression of their exchanges.
This is the story of protection, many at times over-protection. Of living a life defined by a tragic history. A good story that could have been better if it weren't lengthy.

This book gripped me from the start, my usual way of reading is to try to find out the villain before the half way but this book kept me guessing until nearly the end.
I had two suspects and I am pleased to say one of them was on my list from half way in the book but I kept thinking it’s to obvious.
The only think that spoilt it a little bit was the adult Olivia at times I found myself getting annoyed with her, I loved the interaction between Noah and his family especially his mother.
All in all it was an excellent story and I had to put it down a few times because I wanted to prolong the suspense of who done it.
Buy it you will not be disappointed.
Still, a nice read to pass the time and one to add to a collection simply because it's a Nora Roberts.
I understood that the forest and its wildlife were a vitally important part of Livvy's very being but would have been happier with fewer descriptions of them.
