Goodreads Summary

Three years ago, the small town of Britteridge was rocked by the senseless murder of Gail Ludlum. Now the people most affected by the tragedy have returned to the place where it all began, and the scene is set for the perfect revenge . . .
Megan O’Connor’s life was shattered when she was unwittingly drawn into a kidnapping plot that ultimately led to the murder of an innocent woman. Though the road to redemption has been long, she’s finally found happiness with her recent engagement to a wonderful man, a pillar of the community. But amid the chaos of wedding planning, the return of Gail Ludlum’s son to Britteridge sets in motion a disturbing sequence of events. Soon Megan finds herself the victim of a series of cruel deceptions that indicate one thing: her past mistakes have not been forgiven or forgotten. As the mischief escalates to dangerous levels, it becomes clear that someone is determined to avenge Gail’s death. And he won’t rest until he’s taken a life for a life.

My Review

Stephanie is a master at this genre.  I had not read FOOL ME TWICE, and I think it would have helped me in the beginning when I first started reading, but Stephanie does a fantastic job of catching up the reader. Seriously, the one book I hadn't read of hers! :) Once I had everyone where they needed to be in my head, the story took off.  I loved the twist of knowing who the bad guy was and his "reasoning" of why he does what he does.  Creep city!  I also enjoyed the POV switches.  Bravo to Stephanie, again, for doing that so well, as she always does.  Poor Megan, though, poor Megan.  The twists in this book are awesome, and once you think the calm has come, look out!

5 out of 5 stars.  Did you hear me screaming from my house, because WOW!!  Don't make any plans until you are done reading, because you won't be able to stop.  With its heart-pounding suspense, you won't be able to turn the pages fast enough.
