From the back cover:
Julie Barenson's young husband left her two unexpected gifts before he died - a puppy named Singer and the promise that he would always be watching over her. Now, four years later, 29-year-old Julie is far too young to have given up on love. She may be ready to risk caring for someone again. But who?
Should it be Richard Franklin, the sophisticated, handsome engineer, who treats her like a queen? Or Mike Harris, the down-to-earth nice guy, who was her husband's best friend? Choosing one of them should bring her more happiness than she's had in years. Instead, Julie is soon fighting for her life in a nightmare spawned by a chilling deception and a jealousy so poisonous that it has become a murderous desire...
In the beginning I thought this was just another romance where you know right from the
start which of the two men in question will be Julie´s, the female protagonist`s, chosen one
in the end.
After the first half of this love story however it turned into a thriller about a chilly obsession.
By then I couldn´t stop reading till Julie was finally safe.
Critics might say that the characters are very much drawn in black and white (Mike is almost
too good to be true) but as long as the story is gripping – who cares? So if you need an easy reading for a rainy Sunday on your sofa – this is the right choice.
CAUGHT IN OBERKICH GERMANY
I liked the mixture of the (usual) romance with the thriller element in the second half of the book a lot. Scary, the stalker!
Though Julie's "guardian" saved her, I was sad when I read what happened to him in the end.
I'm leaving this book with my mum, Schrat, for her to enjoy!
