Publisher's Summary

Wealthy hotel heiress Torie Bergstrom comes to Jekyll Island certain her friend Lisbeth's death wasn't an accident—but Torie gets more than she bargained for when the killer begins to play mind games with her in this gripping new novel from USA TODAY bestselling author Colleen Coble.

Even though Torie Bergstrom hasn’t been back to Georgia since she was ten, she was happy to arrange a job for her best friend at one of the family properties on Jekyll Island. But when Torie learns that Lisbeth has drowned, she knows it is more than a tragic accident: Lisbeth was terrified of water and wouldn’t have gone swimming by choice.

Torie goes to the hotel under an alias, desperate to find answers. When she meets Joe Abbott and his daughter while they are rescuing baby sea turtles, she can only hope they are as trustworthy as they seem. And when someone begins to play mind games with her, proving they know her real identity, Torie couldn’t be more grateful to have an ally.

The more Torie and Joe dig, the more elusive the truth seems. But one thing is clear: someone will risk anything—even another murder—to keep their secrets buried.

Cluttered, Confusing, Story Line

I usually like Coleen Cobbles stories but this one was contrived and had too many
absurd plot twists. Tried to tie up the loose end at the conclusion of the story but it
didn't work for me. Narration was just Ok. I had to slow the speed down to 0.9x
to be able to understand the dialogue. Main Characters voice was OK but several
of the other voices were awful. All in all, a disappointment.

Very much like her other books, repetitive

I love her books but seems like this book is like the others with the diving attacks and many names like “Ajax” and tiger shark attacks. I feel like I have read it before and disappointed

Great storyline!

As usually Colleen has written a great story! The narrator wasn’t my favorite, though. She did ok with the voices, but in her natural voice as narrator, her voice just didn’t flow well. It sounded too much like I would expect a character acting as a valley girl in a high school movie. It wasn’t awful, just distracting.

This was a great story

This was a great suspense. Colleen Coble did a very good , and it kept me so involved in it , I didn't stop until I finished it, I listened and did my work here at home. The narrator Liz Hill did a great job and kept me engaged feeling like I was there.

Horrible, Religious, Unrealistic Cheesy Romance Novel

I never write reviews but good god this one was bad. I’ll admit I did not get to the ending as I decided to stop torturing myself. For some reason I thought this was a thriller; it is absolutely not even close. This book is probably given out to kids at Sunday school to show them what a pure adult relationship looks like. Fall in love, then have your first kiss. Even the narrator sounds like she’s reading to children. No likable characters, nothing realistic about any part of the story, and cringe-worthy dialogue galore. In full transparency, I am not a fan of romance novels in general but this was absolutely unbearable. Can’t wait to return this one. If only I could get my 7 wasted hours back.

Brilliantly written

Wow this one grabbed me from beginning to end. Torie and Joe each had their struggles, but found a way to each other in the end. Wonderful story and narration.

A Stranger's Game

The Narrator spoke very fast, as if needing to finish book by a certain time. Good story, easy to follow.

Predictable story

The whole book sounded like the characters were reading a story. This was an ok book. Nothing exciting
The narration was annoying
