Review by Library Journal (2000-07-01)

When Becca answers the phone, she knows that it is the stranger calling himself her boyfriend, and she knows that his threats are real. He proves it by casually blowing up the bag lady in the park across the street. The police do not believe her explanation, however, believing that she was involved in that death and those that followed. She flees to Riptide, a small town on the coast of Maine.

After having been completely alone, Becca is suddenly surrounded by friends, including Lacy Sherlock Savich and Dillon Savich, last seen in Coulter!'s The Edge. Who sent them, and, most importantly, who is the stalker? The suspense builds and with it a romance between Becca and Adam, her main protector. Coulter has penned another fun read. The characters are well drawn and act plausibly. With fewer outrageous outside elements thrown in, this book is somewhat more believable than The Edge. For popular fiction collections.

Review by Library Journal (2001-06-01)

Becca Matlock flees New York City and her job as a senior speech writer for the governor to escape the increasingly menacing attentions of a stalker who identifies himself as "your boyfriend" and is threatening to kill her boss. The police think she is a garden-variety hysteric, so Becca changes her last name to Powell (after Colin) and heads to the coastal Maine village of Riptide. She rents the old Jacob Marley place (really!) and settles down to some peace and quiet only to discover a skeleton in her basement.

Up until this point, the story is interesting, but then a dramatic turn involving her not-really-dead father as a high-ranking intelligence agent on the run from a Soviet assassin muddies the plot past redemption. Laural Merlington does her best with this confusing, silly story, but even her expertise cannot rescue it from its lack of character development, testosterone overload, and the contrived appearance of Dillon and Sherlock from several of Coulter's previous novels. While Coulter (False Pretenses) is a popular author always in demand, libraries with limited budgets may want to pass on this title. Barbara Perkins, Irving P.L., TX

Review by Library Journal (2000-03-01)

Speechwriter Jessie Matlock might be working hard on the reelection campaign of New York's beloved governor, but she certainly isn't having an affair with him. So why is she getting threatening phone calls saying, "Stop sleeping with the governor or I'll kill him"?
