Life gets even worse when she receives a heart in the mail with no return address. Somebody leaves box of chocolates in her car with no card, a gift box mysteriously turns up on her pillow, and inside is a gold heart engraved to Angela. Rose begins to feel like she is being stalked and when her boss is found murdered in front of her house, the police begin to take the threat seriously. However, her stalker manages to find her when she is alone and vulnerable and it will take a miracle to save her now.

Wendy Corsi Staub has written an exciting suspense thriller that will keep readers turning the pages until they find out whom the killer is. The various sub-plots seamlessly tie back to the fast-paced and intricately drawn (with subtle gothic elements) prime story line. The heroine is a woman who endears herself to the audience who hopes she will not become the murderers third victim.
