Description

Avery Delaney has tried to put the past far behind her. Abandoned by her rapacious, conniving mother when she was only three days old, Avery was raised by her grandmother and beloved aunt Carolyn. Then, when she was ten, she saw her grandmother murdered in cold blood, before Avery herself was shot and left for dead. Miraculously, she survived. The killer was soon caught, convicted, and is currently serving a life sentence in Florida. This traumatic experience propels Avery into a life of law and order.

Her razor-sharp mind and ability to gather data and decipher evidence has made Avery an expert crime analyst for the FBI. But soon she will have to use every one of her skills on a case that hits painfully close to home.

Avery's workaholic aunt, Carolyn Salvetti, is certain her (hopefully soon-to-be ex-) husband sent her the gold embossed reservation to the posh Utopia Spa in the mountains of Colorado. At first she is resistant, but then she figures it will be a welcome respite from the cutthroat advertising business, not to mention a networking extravaganza. Plus she persuades her niece to join her for the two weeks of luxury and decadence.

But Carolyn never makes it to Utopia. Under false pretenses, she is taken to an isolated retreat by a handsome stranger with a dazzling smile, suave demeanor, and the darkest of motives. His name is Monk, a hired assassin. Now, with scant clues and fewer resources, Avery must track down and save Carolyn—and outmaneuver a brilliant killer who is part of an elaborate plot of madness and lethal vengeance.

Reader reviews

  • (5/5)
    Julie Garwood has once again written a story that will capture the interest of the reader until the last page. Avery Delaney works for the FBI and enjoys her life. She gets thrown into a kidnapping at spa in Colorado and that starts a interesting chain of events with lots of secondary characters and stories. I was caught up in this story from the first page to the last.
  • (5/5)
    Julie Garwood has created a group of characters that keep the reader in suspense until the last page is turned.Abandoned by her conniving mother, Jilly when only 3 days old, Avery was raised by her beloved grandmother and aunt Carolyn. Avery escaped death when her grandmother was killed and the criminal behind it all is in a Florida prison. Add to these in the plot a husband intent on killing his wife, Carrie, for her ishare of the family business and madness begins. If you have read Garwood's previous novels, you have met and loved the characters and this novel just continues the adventures. Kidnapping is the main plot but the side detours of the plot makes for a fine evening of reading. Once more, I found a novel that kept my interest from page one until the surprise ending.
