& Taylor

Fifteen years ago in Boston, Kate Summers made a bargain: she became the mother of a perfect, beautiful newborn baby, and she promised she would never breathe a word about the adoption to anyone. Now Kate has built a good life for herself and her son, Jon, in a small town in Oregon. She has almost forgotten her fear that he will somehow be taken away. Then Daegan O'Rourke arrives in town and strikes up a friendship with her and Jon. Daegan has his own past to hide -- one with shocking ties to hers. Someone is searching for Kate and her son and is willing to go to any lengths to claim him. And the one man Kate is tempted to trust has dangerous secrets that could change her world forever. Soon, the past Kate thought she could outrun will explode, unearthing a legacy of lies and treachery and a fury powerful enough to kill.
Haunted by the fear that her adopted son Jon, who is now 15, will be taken away, Kate Summers finds herself trapped in a living nightmare when someone will go to any lengths--including murder--to claim him, forcing her to trust a mysterious stranger who has secrets of his own. (Suspense).

I usually like suspense but this read was a melodrama and written almost like a Harlequin novel. Probably wont read another novel from this author, the characters were just not likable.

Content was okay but the book was way to wordy. Found my self skipping lots of what I felt was unnecessary information.
