Thanks to Netgalley I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

When she starts to receive threats against herself and attacks against her family, some old and buried secrets are revealed that make her question her own sanity. A series of hand-delivered letters & prank phone calls leaves Ella scared for her life. Someone is watching her. Wanting her. Someone promising revenge and everyone in the town automatically point the finger at Reed Conway but are they right!?
I found this book very slow to get into at the start and I felt that it only started to pick up when I was a good chunk into the book but once it picked up I really enjoyed it and it kept me turning the pages. I thought I'd a fair idea of who the murderer was but didn't work out who it was until the very end and I had suspected just about every character in the book. It is the first book I've read by the author Beverley Barton and I will probably read a few others, I did enjoy reading it but have to admit it's not the best crime thriller I've read but I'm sure other people will think different to me but if you're looking for a thriller that will keep you guessing until the end with some steamy scenes added in, then this book is for you.
