"A family ranch in Big Sur country and a legacy of Hollywood royalty set the stage for Nora Roberts' emotional new suspense novel. Caitlyn Sullivan had come from a long line of Hollywood royalty, stretching back to her Irish immigrant great-grandfather. At nine, she was already a star--yet still an innocent child who loved to play hide and seek with her cousins at the family home in Big Sur. It was during one of those games that she disappeared. Some may have considered her a pampered princess, but Cate was in fact a smart, scrappy fighter, and she managed to escape her abductors. Dillon Cooper was shocked to find the bloodied, exhausted girl huddled in his house--but when the teenager and his family heard her story they provided refuge, reuniting her with her loved ones. Cate's ordeal, though, was far from over. First came the discovery of a shocking betrayal that would send someone she'd trusted to prison. Then there were years spent away in western Ireland, peaceful and protected but with restlessness growing in her soul. Finally, she would return to Los Angeles, gathering the courage to act again and get past the trauma that had derailed her life. What she didn't yet know was that two seeds had been planted that long-ago night--one of a great love, and one of a terrible vengeance"--

This book started out great. It was exciting and kept my attention. In the middle, it was so slow that I almost stopped reading it. I skimmed about half of it. I figured the ending out before I was done reading it. Not my favorite

I enjoyed this Roberts outing. As usual, she did her research and the various aspects of show business seemed real to me.

I don't know if Nora has lost her touch or if I've out grown her. The last few I've read form her just didn't vibe with me. This titled felt drawn out and emotionally shallow. The main character, Cate, felt flat to me and I didn't connect with her. There was high emphasis on familial connections that never really hit the mark. Might have to set NR aside and try out some new authors. Will keep reading the In Death series though!

Once again another great book by Nora Roberts. She is one of my favourite authors and this one didn't disappoint. Loved it.

This book wasn’t one of her best but it was a fast and easy read.

I enjoyed it until about mid point and then I hit a wall and struggeld to complete. Noramlly I would plow through in a couple of days but (sorry to those waiting for a copy) I put it aside for a week as I lost interest. It was way too long for the story line as we all knew what was going to happen - little suspense and yet not all answers tied up in the end. Not her best effort. It had been a while since I read one of her books and now I know why.

The plot evolved fast from just reading the first few chapters; wish it would slow down instead of being like this happened then this then this

I listened to the audio version of this book. The narration by January LaVoy was extraordinary! She is so good at so many different voices. To be honest, she is the reason I gave 5 Stars.
The story itself is probably 4 Stars. I haven't read Nora Roberts for quite awhile. I much preferred when she was writing straight up romances.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book !! Would have liked at least one more chapter to finish up the story.
