This week, I'm sharing...

Here is the synopsis:
 Elizabeth was a young widow with two small children when she met Congressman Richard Baker. Handsome and wealthy, with a sparkling public image, Richard seemed like the perfect man to provide the security that Beth and her kids were craving. But when she uncovers a dangerous secret about her new husband, Beth realizes he will go to any lengths—even murder—to keep it. After barely escaping with her life, she and her children flee. They eventually make their way to a secluded estate in the Pennsylvania countryside, where Beth dares to hope she has found a safe place at last…

Forced into retirement by an unexpected injury, Philadelphia homicide detective Jack O’Malley is mourning the loss of his career when his uncle abruptly dies, leaving Jack to dispose of his crumbling country house. Unbeknownst to him, his uncle engaged a caretaker just before his death, a mysterious woman with two children and a beautiful face that haunts his dreams. Determined to know her, Jack begins an investigation into Beth’s past. When he uncovers the shocking truth, and a local woman is viciously murdered, Jack puts his own life on the line to keep Beth and her children safe.

Here are my thoughts:
So I thought this would be the predictable, "helpless woman runs into strong single man and he saves the day" story.  I was (sorta) wrong.  Beth is far from helpless.  And Jack could use a little help himself.  And there's a whole 'nother side story not mentioned in the synopsis that throws a kink in things.  It's filled with suspense I didn't expect- and while I predicted the ending fairly early on, I definitely enjoyed it.

Hey, we both reviewed books that involve politics this week! Funny coincidence! That said, this one seems like it's way more intense than the one(s) I read. And, I hate to be a judge-y judge-er-son but that cover is brutal. It gives me a creepy feeling, which I guess is good because it's a thriller-ish book, but still, it's pretty bad.
WAIT A SECOND! I just saw what you're reading right now and I didn't know Sara Shepard had written anything aside from the PLL series. Oooooo! I'm excited!! Haha!
