From Publishers Weekly
In this scintillating romantic thriller from bestseller Robards (Obsession), Kate White, a single mother and Philadelphia ADA, is embarrassed in court when her cell phone goes off during a trial. Just then the defendant pulls out a pistol and starts shooting, killing the judge. The terror-stricken Kate fears for her life and the future of her young son, Ben, should she die in the melee. After being taken hostage, Kate escapes, supposedly by killing her captor. Kate soon discovers that her past as a troubled foster child has caught up to her. Someone tries to break into her home, while someone else follows her, threatening her and Ben. Det. Tom Braga, who investigates the courtroom shooting, is firmly convinced that Kate didn’t kill her captor. Kate’s vulnerability appeals to Tom’s protective nature, drawing the pair together in a heated affair. Robards once again shows her flair for coupling first-rate suspense with multidimensional characters. (Apr.)

From Batty’s Girl

I’ve discovered that one more reason to love the library is that you can get great books on CD.  I never thought I would like listening to books, but its actually a wonderful way to keep my mind more active when I’m knitting or crocheting.  Although I stand by my many statements that books on CD aren’t the best for me when I’m driving, I do listen to them in the car I find myself missing a lot of stuff since I’m paying more attention to the road than to the story.

I often found myself thinking that Kate was making very stupid decisions, but they were mostly justified by her very emotional responses.  I thought the attraction to Braga was good but like most books unfounded most of the time.
