When a tabloid exposes her personal life, a bestselling author reconnects with a man from her past to unearth the secrets behind her sister's murder.
Bellamy Lyston was only twelve years old when her older sister Susan was killed on a stormy Memorial Day. Bellamy's fear of storms is a legacy of the tornado that destroyed the crime scene along with her memory of what really happened during the day's most devastating moments.

Now, eighteen years later, Bellamy has written a sensational bestselling novel based on Susan's murder, published under a pseudonym to protect her family from unwanted publicity. But when an opportunistic tabloid reporter discovers that the book is based on fact, Bellamy's identity is exposed along with the family scandal . . . and she becomes the target of a vengeful assailant.

In order to identify her stalker, Bellamy must confront the ghosts of her past, including Susan's wayward and reckless boyfriend, Dent Carter. Dent is intent on clearing his name, and he needs Bellamy's help to do it. But her dangerous memories -- once unlocked -- could put both of their lives in peril.

Determined to learn the truth, Bellamy won't stop until she finds Susan's killer. That is, unless the killer strikes first . . .


This could have turned into an unbelievable sappy romance, but it was actually quite a fun read.  While some of it jumped the shark for me, such as how Bellamy thought she could write a book about her sisters death and not effect the lives of those she fictionalized is beyond me.  But now that the book is written and the secret of who she is is revealed someone isn't happy with her story.  Bellamy is being stalked and people are getting hurt because of her book and with the help of her sisters old boyfriend, Dent Carter she may not only stay alive but figure out who is after her.  

I don't believe I have ever read a Sandra Brown book before but it was a fun easy read that kept the mind occupied and the pages turning.  This is not deep literature but it does have a great villain and an interesting romantic twist.  Definitely a good read for a lazy weekend.
