Author: S.L. Pierce and Maren Kaye
Review: The author requested I read and review this book and I told her I was backed up and would get to it when I had a chance. I downloaded it onto the Kindle and thought as I was getting ready for bed just to have a quick peek at it. Well I didn’t put it down for some time, I kept waiting for a boring bit and finally I had to put it down and go to sleep. I picked it up the next day and read until my dental appointment and then finished it at home an hour or so later. I really enjoyed the suspense and the second guessing myself about what was really happening. Was it her…was it him…nono it was definitely him…no maybe not…
Stalkers and those stalking the stalker and then psychologists to boot, this book is very much a psycho thriller. Who did it and why? Why are some of us born without the ability to feel what others feel? What happens when we cannot get a song or person out of our thoughts? Think about it… do you cyber stalk anyone…or have you…or have you thought about doing it? How easy would it be...pretty easy I think.
This is intense and fast paced. I read and thought and read and guessed and yet was surprised at who it was and why. The characters are endearing and spooky at the same time. You will find yourself identifying with Rachel and trying to figure out a way to help her. The doctor on the other hand was not someone I could easily identify with. Ambition is a good thing as long as it doesn’t lead to obsession. This is a good book that I would suggest it to any reader out there.
Check it out, you will be glad you did.

Synopsis: Is a stranger who stalks your stalker a friend or your worst enemy?
Rachel Pendelton is determined to break from her small town past and stake out a new life for herself with a dream job in the big city. But hard work and determination are no match for whoever is working against her. When anonymous gifts show up, she’s flattered. When they appear in her locked apartment, she starts worrying. What can she do when everyone she turns to for help looks suspicious?
What she doesn’t know is that a game has begun. A game with rules as baffling as they are deadly. A game that will pit her against the criminally insane. And only one can finish alive.
