When Cadence Weaverly graduates from high school, she thinks it’s for the best that she and her boyfriend, Richard White, take separate paths: she to Julliard and he back to Harvard. Ten years later, she has an ideal job and a wonderful fiance, Christian. She is building the life of her dreams-until the day Richard resurfaces out of the blue, abducts her from her San Francisco apartment, and returns her to his mansion where he holds her captive. Cadence can hardly believe her ears when Richard professes his undying love and reveals his plans to build a life together. Terrified to fight back for fear he will have Christian murdered, Cadence must determine how to reason with a mentally unstable man who is obsessed with making her his forever. But even if she manages to escape, will she ever really be free of the man who hunts her heart?
In this psychological thriller, a young woman must rely on perseverance, courage, and inner strength to survive after she is kidnapped by her deranged ex-boyfriend.
Intensely riveting, spine-chilling, and highly suspenseful!
This is a gripping thriller that illustrates the psychological and emotional anguish of obsession, manipulation, selfishness, lies, and deception.
The prose is clear and precise. The characterization is well developed, with the main character, Cadence, being confused, resilient, and empathetic, while Richard is intense, moody, and conniving. And the story is written in a nice, past/present style that allows insight and depth into both the relationship between the characters, as well as their individual drives, wants and motivations.
This is a well written, tension-filled, debut novel full of twists, turns, violence, mayhem, and murder that will entertain you from the very first page.
