    This was uite the improvement over Desperate Strangers the first book in the mini series That book had one of the dumbest protagonists I had ever witnessed in my life The fact I can still remember that really says something The heroine of this story is Eliza Burke and she thankfully has a reasonably smart head on her shouldersShe has inherited her house from the grandfather of her dead ex husband She and her two kids can hear strange sounds behind the walls at night so she thinks they might have a rat problem Or is it something sinister Well considering this is a romantic suspense story it's a safe bet that something hinky is happening in Eliza's life right nowThe hero is her next door neighbour Troy Anderson He's part of the vigilante club mentioned in the previous book They're all men aggrieved by crimes against them and their loved ones in which the perpetrators have escaped punishment because of justice system glitches They've set up a system where they'll kill another group member's target in a Strangers On A Train type scenario so that nobody can be linked to the crimes Except one of the group members is killing the targets before anyone else can do itAnyway since that's the theme running through the mini series it's not resolved here To be honest this was one situation where I wasn't too bothered because the main story worked fine without it There were some good creepy moments in which Eliza or her kids saw things or smelt things that they shouldn'tAs a hero it was a bit touch and go with me in regards to Troy He's haunted by the fact that his daughter was kidnapped on his watch he only looked away for a couple of minutes and ultimately murdered Obviously the killer is the person he wants the vigilante group to kill You're starting off in a difficult place when your hero is ready to commit murder to right a wrong Because someone else got there first doesn't entirely absolve you of guilt He sometimes came across as a bit of a martyr with his standard romance story I can never be allowed to love again trope especially as he rather callously causes Eliza and her kids genuine hurt with his attitude But the author is also staying true to how a parent would be feeling and acting if their child had been murderedEliza made for a likable compassionate heroine A breath of relief after the moron heroine of the previous book I managed to buy her connection with Troy because they talked about something other than food take note Carol Ericson and there were some nice touches as to how she communicated with Troy about his daughter A lot of conversation was tell and not show but at least there was an idea that they were actually talking about things Plus these books do have word limit constraintsThe kids were sweethearts especially son Sammy who is blind Perhaps too good to be true but I always prefer that to annoying sniveling bratsIt's a solid story with some creepy moments but alas not enough of them It was all pretty predictable and there were some slow spots so it wasn't the totally gripping romantic thriller I could have hoped for but it's above average for the Intrigue line

    35 starsNice book Troy had to face his demons to get his happily ever afterEliza's children were really sweetMy only minor issue was that Eliza switched gears pretty fast and already started seeing Troy as her going to be husband and her kids' father I thought she would be apprehensive since it affected her kids' life also But I think the author wanted Troy to face his demons and make peace with his past so that's why he was the one who was in denialThis book continues the vigilante killer plot from book 1 Desperate Strangers but it can be read as a standalone

    I'm sorry but I was not a huge fan of this book Personally I thought that Eliza moved way to fast with Troy She has kids and is doing great on her own but within 2 weeks she's ready to start a family with him I've seen too many people go down that path With that said I did find the house noises and the little hidden holes pretty neat I dunno the book wasnt for me but it could be enjoyable to others Sorry

    I normally love all of Carla Cassidy's books but not this one I could not connect with Troy I understand why he did what he did but I was turned off from the beginning and never changed my mind Yes in the end he stepped up and was awesome with the kids but it wasn't enough to overcome my distrustdislike of him Give it a chance though You might like it than I did

    It was an ok book I didn't like how uickly things were moving on the romance side of things The mystery is what kept me going I had to know who was sneaking into the house I was surprised
