Synopsis

A dark presence had invaded the Jorgensens’ house. On a spectacular bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, something evil is watching and waiting . . .
Tired of the cold winters in Washington, D.C. and disturbed by her increasingly obsessive boyfriend, Kailani Kanaka savors her move back to her native Big Island of Hawaii. She also finds a new job as personal chef for the Jorgensen family. The gentle caress of the Hawaiian trade winds, the soft sigh of the swaying palm trees, and the stunning blue waters of the Pacific lull her into a sense of calm at the House of Hanging Jade–an idyll that quickly fades as it becomes apparent that dark secrets lurk within her new home. Furtive whispers in the night, a terrifying shark attack, and the discovery of a dead body leave Kailani shaken and afraid. But it’s the unexpected appearance of her ex-boyfriend, tracking her every move and demanding she return to him, that has her fearing for her life . . .

What I Thought:

This was another great book from Amy Reade.  I have said it before and I will say it again, her writing reminds me so much of Phyllis Whitney.  There is suspense in the story and there is also good relationship elements in the story as well.  This one kept me on the edge of my seat.  There was so much going on in this book, there was no way to get bored.  Kailani was a very strong character and I really liked her.  If you are looking for a edge of your seat, page-turner, that has strong writing and relationships in the book, then this is the book for you.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
