Dr. Frasier couldn't save the gunshot victim on her front lawn. Now she's fighting for her own life.
It began as a quiet dinner party honoring Dr. Shannon Frasier's colleague, but became a nightmare when a man was shot on her lawn, reviving emotions from a similar episode a decade ago. Then a midnight call from her sister, Megan, causes Shannon to fear that her sister is on drugs again.
Her "almost-fiancé" Dr. Mark Gilbert's support only adds to Shannon's feelings of guilt, since she can't bring herself to fully commit to him. She turns for help to her pastor-father, only to learn that he's just been diagnosed with leukemia.
Shannon thought it couldn't get any worse. Then the late-night, threatening phone calls begin, the rough voice asking, "What did he say before he died?"
With everything around her in a critical state, simply staying alive will require all the resources and focus Shannon has.
I was anxious to read this book but it was a bit of a let down. It read like the author was in a hurry to tell the story. Also there were things that just weren't realistic...Shannon interfering in a police investigation and getting away with it. Anyone doing the things she did would've been arrested.
Shannon's boyfriend dies in her arms then years later another man is shot & dies on her lawn. Someone is wanting to know what his last words were to Shannon. The plot is a good one but in my opinion the book could've been much more. 3 stars from me.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
