About the Book:

Eighteen months ago, Nora James watched as her father was shot in an alley—and then she fled. She changed her name, her appearance and her job, hoping to keep her father's shooter at bay. For months, it worked…but now her luck has run out. A ruthless assassin is on her trail, and soon Nora, now known as Danielle, will be found. But this time, she has FBI agent Nate Andersen by her side—right? The handsome agent would give his life to protect Danielle, but he's wary of giving his heart…until a deadly confrontation leaves him with both on the line.


My Rating & Thoughts:    

This book is the book that introduced me to Liz Johnson's writing about 10 years ago. After reading it back then I knew I wanted to continue reading books written by her, I have since read majority of her books. Because I have fond memories of this book, I was excited to read it again. This time through though a couple things stuck out to me as odd. If Nate is such a good agent, how did he not notice the similarities between Danielle and Nora sooner, and why did he leave her alone so much to go back to his apartment when he had promised to provide 24/7 protection. I was impressed with Danielle/Nora, what a strong, courageous and resourceful character. I couldn't imagine watching a person you love get shot and then going on the run and starting a brand-new life on her own. I did figure out who 'The Shadow' was quite early on but I was still invested to see how things would play out. I was much more invested in the romance relationship side of the story than the mystery.
