The chemistry between the two main characters was well written and kept me reading into the small hours. I liked the homely, family feeling the story gave.
The villain was horrible and the scenes depicted were hair raising. I found myself triple checking that I had locked my doors! Many times I gasped aloud!

Another great romantic/thriller by the infamousReviewed in the United States on 18 July 2015
*Another great romantic suspense by the infamous bestselling author Karen Robards that will have you riveting from the very first chapter right down to the very last page. It's a must read!.............The last thing that photographer Alexandra "Alex" Haywood ever wanted to do was the task forced upon her. Returning to her home known as Whistledown in Shelby County, Kentucky, she wasn't looking forward to the job at hand which meant disposing of her father's legacy including the mansion, six hundred seventeen acres of land and all the race horses as well. Trainer Joe Welch was drop dead gorgeous Alex thought as she approached him at his ranch to announce his services were no longer needed. Losing his temper with Alex was putting it mildly but when he confronted her with a binding contract, she only matched her anger with his, telling him he was fighting a losing battle for he was to sell all the horses in thirty days or face bankruptcy. Joe thought Alex Haywood was the coldest woman he ever laid eyes on and the most beautiful but he wasn't going down without a fight. Known as Paradise County for its beauty, Joe also had his own ranch with his own horses and three young children to care for ever since his wife deserted them many years earlier but what Joe or Alex didn't know, Paradise County had a dark and sinister secret amongst them, so evil that it was about to surface at any moment. As Joe and Alex's tempers begin to rise, an unbridled attraction is formed where they can no longer deny their passion for the other only to find themselves falling in love. When Neely, Alex's younger sister goes missing along with Eli, Joe's son a realization so frightening surfaces Paradise County and soon after, Alex disappears too leaving Joe faced with a horror from his past. Is his past connected to his present? With all the devastating clues mounting up, his only hopes is to save the kids and the woman he loves before a demented and twisted killer murders them both and prays he can win the race of a lifetime by saving the lives of his loved ones before it's too late, odds he is not willing to pay no matter what!............thank you♡♡

Don't botherReviewed in the United States on 9 March 2016
I first started reading Robards when she wrote Historical Romances. Those books were well developed, and kept you involved but I do have to say that her Romantic suspense books are not as well developed. I do like them but not as well as her earlier books. Paradise County was okay until the animal torture became a part of the story. The only good thing was the human torture was less graphic(thank goodness). I also found the reason behind the predators torture was very weak. I simply think the book was a fast write without true depth.
