From the Back Cover
From the New York Times bestselling author of Dream Eyes and Copper Beach comes a brand-new quintessential Jayne Ann Krentz romance.
It's been thirteen years since Lucy Sheridan was in Summer River. The last time she visited her aunt Sara there, as a teenager, she'd been dragged out of a wild party-by the guy she had a crush on. Obviously Mason Fletcher was the overprotective type who thought he had to come to her rescue. Now, Lucy learns there was more to the story... Mason had saved her from a very nasty crime that night-and soon afterward, Tristan, the cold-blooded rich kid who'd targeted her, disappeared mysteriously, his body never found.
--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
A lot has changed in thirteen years. Lucy now works for a private investigation firm, while Mason runs a successful security firm with his brother. Even Summer River has changed, from a sleepy farm town into a trendy upscale spot in California's wine country. But Mason is still a protector at heart, a serious (and seriously attractive) man. And when he and Lucy make a shocking discovery inside Sara's house, Mason's quietly fierce instincts kick into gear. He saved Lucy once, and he'll save her again. But this time, she insists on playing a role in her own rescue . . .

For the last few years it has felt like JAK has been coasting. Rehashed plots, h's and H's who are interchangeable, well written but no spark/fire.
So it was nice to see this attempt to gain her earlier form but it kind of fell short - mainly because this book feels like it was an old draft sitting somewhere in a file that the publishers have dusted off an attempted to market as a recent work. There are a couple of clues. The h, feels uptight an old fashioned, the whole talk of therapy and meditation - done already in several early JAK books.
The relationship between her Aunts that everyone (and I do mean everyone) keeps referring to them as being 'good friends'. Though they obviously lived together and were lovers. For heaven's sake - just say they were lovers or partners. Why tip toe around the subject so coyly?
The relationship between the H & h - was a little bit clumsy. There's murder and mayhem going on but then we'd suddenly switch to a romance scene. Even the sex scene felt a little bit out dated (as if written years ago)
Oh, and the jumps/conclusions everyone makes - well they are just nonsensical. At one point the villain, says they just had a feeling that the h had discovered their identity, based upon nothing more than watching her. Huh? And the villain's reasons for doing everything , ridiculous, if they are that balls out crazy how did they hold down a job for so long and interact with people?
I think I'm finally coming to the realisation that JAK will no longer be on my automatic 'must buy' list. I just don't think she can deliver a 'fresh' - keep me gripped to the book - read like she could once upon a time.

There is a good mystery with a little romance thrown in. It kept my interest and had me late for the school run a couple of times - yep a good book!
The outline of the story had potential but the execution was lacklustre.
I cannot imagine wanting to read another book by the author and I feel 3 stars is generous.
