Synopsis: A brave woman on the run from her vindictive husband faces a dangerous path in the thrilling new romantic suspense novel from Oscar-nominated actress Meg Tilly.
Sarah Rainsford has been on the run for more than three years. She's changed identities yet again in hopes of throwing her violent estranged husband, a police lieutenant, off her trail. Since she's still legally married to him, and he is willing to bend any laws to get his hands on her inheritance, he'll stop at nothing to locate her.
With a new name and fake ID papers, she lands a job as a personal assistant to none other than Hollywood's golden boy director Mick Talford. He's a difficult client but she senses hidden depths to him. Once Mick and Sarah combine forces in a desperate attempt to keep Sarah out of harm's way, they build a strong bond . . . but with danger trailing them, is it enough to keep them both alive? (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: This was a thrilling and dangerous read. I knew I was in for a good time as soon as I finished the first chapter. It's just the perfect kind of book to catch your attention and keep you reading.
I loved the mix of danger and romance in this. It just made for a very entertaining and satisfying story. It had all the elements that I wanted. It was also very well written, well done. Meg Tilly knew what story she wanted to tell, and she told it well.
This book does involve an abusive relationship. Sarah is on the run from a husband who is violent and a police lieutenant. He has the resources to track her down and he won't let her go. There was definitely a lot of danger in this story and Sarah is running for her life. It definitely put me on the edge of my seat.
I really enjoyed watching the relationship blossom between Sarah and Mick. I also really liked the mix of thriller and Hollywood in this story.
This was a ride from start to finish, and I really enjoyed it. Meg Tilly knows how to tell a good story. I'd definitely say read it if it sounds interesting to you. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
