Ten years ago...
Special Agent Jess Harris has closed another tough case and now she's determined to make it home to spend Christmas with her only family, her sister. Jess needs a break and taking it far away from work is the only way to keep her mind off the many faces of evil waiting in the stack of case files on her desk.
Running into the past wasn't part of the plan...
Daniel Burnett was Jess's first love. She'd fallen hard for him in high school. Together they'd gone off to college with big dreams. But not all dreams come true. Jess hasn't seen Dan in ten years when they run into each other on Christmas Eve night...yet no force on earth can keep them apart.
I don’t normally post reviews for prequels or novellas here on the blog. Nor do I normally rate them more than 3 stars. Generally, their purpose is to set up the characters in or the framework for an upcoming series. I even debated whether to read this one as it was written after the series was introduced. I am so glad I took the time to read this one.
The story is essentially about the two main characters in the series, Jess Harris and Daniel Burnett, providing some history of what happened to them 10 years before the series begins. But, Webb decided she’d make this story really worthwhile by wrapping it in a chilling mystery.
I was riveted to it and finished the book in a couple of hours. Don’t make the mistake of bypassing it. It’s worth far more than my $.99 investment. Trust me. Read it first.
Now, check out my full review of Obsession, the first full length novel in the series.
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
