LincolnVailes, is home.  Back in Louisiana where his parents live.  He has returned home to help his mom with his ailing father.  A minister all his life, now Lincoln's dad is facing the horrible disease of Alzheimer's.  It is hard to see him not in his right mind.  This illness has definitely taken its toll on the Vailes family, Lincoln's father is not himself, raging in the disease, Lincoln's faith is tested to near the breaking point, and his poor mother is tired. 
Jade Laurent (Santiago) is a social worker fresh out of college, with a mission to save all abused wives and children.  Her past gives her a passion for the abused wives, and she is serious about her job.  Perhaps too serious, allowing herself to become emotionally and personally intangled in a ongoing case. 
Someone is in the small town of Eternal Springs Lousiana, on a mission to do harm to Jade, and Lincoln, as a police officer on the small town force is determined to find out who it is and why they want to hurt her.  What he doesn't expect, however is to loose his heart to the fiesty young social worker.  Now it is personal, whoever is trying to hurt Jade has to be exposed.  Will exposing that person lead to Jade's death?  Will she survive the terror that has been planned against her?
This book was an attention grabber.  I started this book late at night, my first mistake, and ended up reading into the wee hours of the morning.  I had to finish it.  I could not put it down.  Robin Caroll, who I already enjoyed reading from her previous book Deliver Us From Evil (which Lincoln Vailes was also in that book) once again proved herself as an author with the ability to keep me on the edge of my seat.  Throw in the fact that she is a fellow Arkansan, and she moves right to the top of my list of favorite authors.  Definitely a book to read this summer!  320 pages $14.99 US 5 stars.
