From USA Today best-selling author Maureen A. Miller comes this romantic thriller that spans the Atlantic.
Sophie Diem’s boss has skipped town, abandoning their counseling firm and taking her investment money with him. As she seeks to rebuild her professional career, she is distressed by the appearance of a stranger. The man keeps to the shadows, but he is definitely stalking her.
In an attempt to flee him, she accepts a job offer…in London. Surely, crossing the Atlantic would be enough to deter her shadow.
Glenn Barber is a desperate man. He sorely wants answers. The man who can supply them has gone missing, though. Now, all Glenn can do is go after the next best thing: the man’s former employee, Sophie Diem.
Sophie is shocked to spot her shadow in London. What she learns is that Glenn, the shadow, is not a stalker but rather her only protection.
As her attraction to Glenn grows, together, they conspire to locate her former boss and stop him before he can harm others.
USA TODAY bestselling author, Maureen A. Miller worked in the software industry for fifteen years. She crawled around plant floors in a hard hat and safety glasses hooking up computers to behemoth manufacturing machines. The job required extensive travel. The best form of escapism during those lengthy airport layovers became writing.
Maureen’s first novel, WIDOW’S TALE, earned her a Golden Heart nomination in Romantic Suspense. After that she became hooked to the genre. In fact, she was so hooked she is the founder of the JUST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE website.
Recently, Maureen branched out into the Young Adult Science Fiction market with the popular BEYOND Series. To her it was still Romantic Suspense…just on another planet!
I studied theatre in college, and even participated in storytelling festivals when I was growing up. I’m a practicing attorney, and love to participate in ACX projects to keep my creative side happy and fulfilled. I can perform fiction and non-fiction, in neutral-American or Southern-American accents.
I live in North Carolina with my husband, toddler, and pound puppy. I have a soft spot for romance and I love a good laugh!
Miller does a great job of setting up a perfect creepy mystery! I love what she did with our main character and her connection to the boss. It made for a very emotional read throughout. Although I do think some areas could do with less details. A bit more action replacing the scene descriptions would appease me 🙂 But overall I enjoyed the connection we got instantly with the characters and I would be happy to read more from this author and this series. I give it a 4/5 stars.
As for the narration, it could have been much better. I’ll start with the positives. I felt like she did a great job with emotion and distinguishing between each character. What I felt went wrong was the consistency of these distinguishing characteristics in voices. There were also several words pronounced kind of weirdly and hard to understand in certain parts in the audio. I think she will do well with more practice. So for me the audio is a 3.75/5 stars.
