Author: Dori Lavelle
Chloe Parker has the world at her feet. Her career in magazine publishing is flourishing, and she’s about to be married to Miles Durant, a gorgeous billionaire, and the man of her dreams.
But one month before her wedding, she receives a countdown card. No sender. No return address. No message. Only a piece of lace stained with blood. As the wedding gets closer the cards keep coming to her every day without fail.
It seems, while she’s counting down to the happiest day of her life, someone is doing a countdown of their own. Chloe fears she’s in danger, but she can’t turn to the cops for help. There’s something in her past she wants to remain hidden, a dark secret that could destroy the life of her dreams. To make things worse, Miles is becoming increasingly impatient and suspicious about her past, to the point where he’s so angry he becomes a man she doesn’t recognize.
While working to keep her relationship intact, Chloe must find out who wants to hurt her before she loses everything, or ends up dead.

Okay first of all I want to scream. That ending flat out pissed me off. Seriously. But holy shit it was great. Freakin HUGE CLIFFHANGER! This is a first time read for me by this author and I’m hooked. The writing style was great and I loved how things were descriptive but not overly wordy. Things that needed more details had them. It was very refreshing after being in a funk.
Chloe is living the good life and leaving her past where it is. Only things happen that throw it in her face and there is no escaping it. No matter where she goes or who she talks to. It’s there. Painful reminders of an event that happened in her teens shock her to her core. She has a great job and even greater fiance. Chloe doesn’t want this to keep hitting her in the face and goes to look for answers. Only the answers she had planned on finding were a dead end. Literally!
This book is definitely high in angst and intense emotions. I loved it! The story flowed well and the characters were definitely likeable. The ending completely wrecked me and I am left reeling. I want more. Like now!
