I bought this book thinking it was only a murder mystery but found out that it was also classed as murder/romance
I found the story and characters very good and i really enjoyed it and at times couldn't put it down but must admit that i found the romance part appeared far too often and went into far too much detail and also the main characters thinking about each other was a bit repetitive
Sticking to the main story would have made it a better read but since the story line was really good i give it 4 stars

The book is about Caroline and her son Tom who ran away from her husband 7 years ago and were presumed dead and now have there own life together. When Caroline gets a new Boss called Max they are both drawn to each other and a relationship blooms but Caroline has to let go of the past and Max also has his own demons to overcome and this makes there relationship difficult.

Also Caroline's husband, who he a cop has figured out she is alive and is after her leaving a trail of destruction in his wake and is being chased by his fellow cops as they have figured out he is evil and after her and it is a race for them to find Caroline before he does!

I brought this book with the worry it would be a rip off of sleeping with the enemy but it was really quite good. I know that Karen Rose has written other books about some of the characters and I am interested to see what happens to them.

I read the bad reviews on this book and couldn't understand their disappointment in this story. I suppose everyone has different taste and expectations. I loved this book. karen Rose never fails to keep me anxious to find out what happens next. Personally, I found this story brilliant. The characters were believable and I couldn't wait to find out more. Yet again, another page turner by Karen Rose.

Once you have read one of Karen Rose's books you have read them all, they all stick to the same formula. It would be nice if they were not so predictable. I think this is a problem with a lot of American writers. I think I will be sticking to British writers from now on

This was the third Karen Rose book I read (which admittedly meant I knew the ending as it pre-dated the other two).

While it passed the time enough, I was getting VERY BORED of the looping sub-plot involving the two main characters trying to hook up, then not hooking up, then arguing about something, then trying to hook up over and over and over again.

The 'intimate scenes' go on forever whereas the thriller scenes are fleeting. The villain is as one-dimensional as they come and virtually everyone else is good and true, haunted by some dreadful thing that befell them.

The other books I read (Have You Seen Her? and I Can See You) featured some of the same characters and both were better, but Rose seems to trade solely on a damaged man with a bad past meeting a damaged woman with a bad past - the woman is being stalked by a killer and the man has to fall in love with her, fall out with her, save her and then win her.

This worked nicely once and was even tolerable twice but after a third book of the same thing happening yet again, I think I'm done with her.

I bought this book having seen Karen Rose's books on the shelves and wondered what they were like, as I usually go for Jeffrey Deaver, Kathy Reichs, Karin Slaughter and Stephen King. I was not disappointed. The story hooked me in quickly and I found I couldn't wait to pick the book up again to find out what happened next. The story keeps your attention from beginning to end and I am looking forward to getting another book by Rose.

Could not put it down. This is the first time I have read any Karen Rose books and will certainly be reading more. I thought that where it shows Chicago Series book 1, 2 etc that they follow on from one another but they don't. You need to go onto her website to see which order to read them. For example Don't Tell (The Chicago Series Book 1). Then the next book to read is "Have You Seen Her" (The Rayleigh Series) then "I'm watching you "(The Chicago Series). etc. Very strange

The first thing anyone thinking about buying this book should be aware of is that it is published by "Warner Forever", and is marketed as "Romantic Suspense". In my ignorance, I thought I was buying a mystery/thriller novel so was bitterly disappointed.

The plot is basically an okay one: abused wife flees her husband and, together with her young son, starts a new life. The narrative kicks off about ten years later, when the husband discovers his wife is still alive and sets out to track her down.

However, the idea is let down by the painfully cliched dialogue, characterization and descriptions. It reads like something out of a cheap airport romance. I am aware this is the author's first novel, so perhaps her later books are better written. I recently had the misfortune to read one of Tess Gerritson's earliest efforts and it was of much the same calibre as this - and yet she has now matured into a gripping crime writer.

If you are looking for a Mills & Boony type thing, I imagine you might enjoy this. It has a strong, feisty female lead with a dark, brooding male love interest, both recovering from painful pasts.

If you are looking for a new crime writer, please do not touch this book. Within the first 50 pages I was already having to skip whole chunks of schmaltzy "romance" sections and by about two-thirds through, I basically just skimmed to the end to find out what happened.
