Alone, without Vince, she has no one to save her from Eddie's devious plans except her friends, Sal Catalano, her husband's partner and Peter Langley. TWO BOUNDLESS STARS
When her husband Vince is thought to be dead after a plane crash, Danni becomes a target of a madman. Break-ins begin happening, and she is being followed. The stalker is thought to be her new gardener, Eddie. Eddie is a psychopath that uses his skills to prey on Danni in her vulnerable state. This book told a good story, but it lacked emotion and feeling. Danni is being stalked and has many things happen to her that warrant fear and anger, but I just didn't feel that when I read it. She finds out her husband is dead and its like oh no. Then later she finds out about him cheating, and she is just ok with it, it seems. The lack of emotion messed this story up for me. It feels like you are just reading a script. I enjoyed the storyline and the characters though. The story was full of mystery, and the characters were intriguing. Overall, the story itself was good, but it just lacked a bit in the writing area.
