The riveting novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Liar.
“She stood in the deep, dark woods, breath shallow and cold prickling over her skin despite the hot, heavy air. She took a step back, then two, as the urge to run fell over her.”
Naomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father’s crimes and made him infamous. No matter how close she gets to happiness, she can’t outrun the sins of Thomas David Bowes.
Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, a rambling old house in need of repair, thousands of miles away from everything she’s ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the kindly residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up—especially the determined Xander Keaton.
Naomi can feel her defenses failing, and knows that the connection her new life offers is something she’s always secretly craved. But the sins of her father can become an obsession, and, as she’s learned time and again, her past is never more than a nightmare away.

  • Just Okay

    Good, entertaining, had me interested, but the climax was incredibly disappointing considering all the amount of reading that occurred before it. The villain was incredibly obvious from the get-go, so in the end it was a good read until the climax, and then it was just “eh”.

    Oh my goodness. I just finished the Villa and then scrolling through other reviews read about this book. So I started the preview of it when I came to the end I couldn’t stand it I bought it and I have been reading it all day couldn’t put it down. LOL what a great book thank you to the lady who wrote the review about it you’re absolutely right it should be made into a movie. and thank you Ms. Roberts like I said before you are a national treasure. Kept the TV off all day didn’t want to hear anymore about the COVID-19 situation I just tuned the world out For a day and I still got all my laundry done LOL😉😊
