I would rate this book very highly. I was on the edge of my seat most of the time. I really felt the growing tension and fear in our heroin as the story progressed. I almost felt like I was in Ria's shoes, as she went about her day. To be stalked is one of the cruelest things one person can do to another. It steals your confidence and sense of security. Ria is a very independent and confident woman though, under normal circumstances, that is until Alan gets under her skin. However, she still manages to carry on, if only for her children's sake. She is an admirable role model with a good work ethic and great family values. The book had me gripped right to the end and it didn't disappoint. I'm so glad I was lucky enough to win it.
