Summary

Summary

When Gabrielle Newman throws her cheating husband out, Stu cares more about the money than the break-up, getting more than his fair share from their house sale. An unexpected bequest offers Gabrielle a new start and she tries to leave the past behind, heading north with Dan Monahan, the private investigator sent to find her.

Meanwhile, Stu has got entangled with organized crime in Eastern Europe and is desperate to pay his gambling debts. Gabrielle needs Dan's help to protect herself and her inheritance. She's very attracted to Dan - but dare she trust any man again?

Then Stu tracks down his ex-wife and Gabrielle discovers just what the man she once loved is capable of, as her life is threatened. Can she and Dan find a way to stop Stu and his ruthless new friends?

Booklist Review

Emily Dickinson says hope is the thing with feathers, a message heroine Gabi should have considered before marrying Stu. Once divorce looms, he is unmasked, revealing an unfaithful, violent man scheming for financial gain from the marriage, even, or especially, if it means terrorizing Gabi and threatening her physically. Tennessee Williams speaks of the kindness of strangers ; this is embodied in Dan, a kind, compassionate PI sent to Gabi's rural Lancashire home with news of an unexpected legacy. He stays to help the traumatized woman, offering tea, sympathy, and assistance with painting a few rooms of the house she must sell. Dan's investigation uncovers Stu's possible link to some shady types in Prague, home of his mistress and business connections. Could this explain his desperation for the house sale? Though somewhat like a TV movie, the journey Jacobs takes readers on deep into the dark of Gabi's marriage and out in the light of her rescue is well worth the trip.--Scott, Whitney Copyright 2015 Booklist
