ABOUT THE BOOK
If I’d had any idea what those words would mean to me, to my mother and daughter, I’d have fled California without looking back.
While driving a rural road, Hannah Shire and her aging mother, who suffers from dementia, stop to help a man at the scene of a car accident. The man whispers mysterious words in Hannah’s ear. Soon people want to kill Hannah and her mother for what they “know.” Even law enforcement may be involved.
The two women must flee for their lives. But how does Hannah hide her confused mother? Carol just wants to listen to her pop music, wear her favorite purple hat, and go home. And if they turn to Hannah’s twentyseven- year-old daughter, Emily, for help, will she fall into danger as well?
Pressed on all sides, Hannah must keep all three generations of women in her family alive. Only then does she learn the threat is not just to her loved ones, but the entire country . . .
If you have read Brandilyn Collins do I really need to say more than her name?
This is only the second book I have read by her. I loved the first and hoped I would love the second.
Brandilyn knows how to write page turning suspense so well, it is A-mazing.
Hannah, your main character, is overwhelmed with taking care of her mother who suffers from dementia. She is headed home from a good weekend with her mom when they come upon an accident. The man they find laying on the side of the road says things that don’t really make sense but Hannah’s mother is convinced they must do what he asked.
Soon strangers are knocking at Hannah’s door claiming to be the FBI but something doesn’t feel right. Before Hannah can get a good nights sleep she is packing her mother up and running from her home.
If you like suspense with strong female characters you will love this book. You really need to grab a copy and getting reading — with the lights on so you don’t get scared 🙂
