Rick Bentz lost his cheating wife, Jennifer, twelve years ago right after he divorced her. After an accident, he wakes in a hospital and begins seeing Jennifer at every turn. He questions if she is really dead or is someone playing mind games.

Olivia married Rick not long after the death of Jennifer. She desperately wants to have a child with him, but he has a daughter in her twenties and does not really wish to go down that path again.

Rick is a cop with the New Orleans Police Department. After suffering damage to his back due to a terrible lightning storm, he cannot return to work until he is completely well. Staying at home recuperating is driving him nuts. Olivia promised to stay with Rick through anything, but since the accident; things have been less than perfect in their marriage. Of late, Rick has been having ‘Jennifer sightings.’ He knows that is impossible since he was the one who identified her dead body. Something is amiss, especially when he begins smelling the fragrance she wore. As Rick heads out to Los Angeles to dissect the mystery, Olivia carries her own secret but is unable to tell Rick before he departs. Someone is out for vengeance against Rick and this time, Olivia may end up being caught in the middle.

Lisa Jackson unquestionably knows how to keep a story moving at a fast pace. She has a flare for instilling intrigue and suspense in to stories that grab this reader from the beginning. The blurb alone drew me in like a magnet, not to mention Rick being in New Orleans. I love the whole ambiance that surrounds the players. I knew this would be a read that riveted me all the way to the conclusion. It went beyond that and more! With some unsuspecting twists and turns, Lisa Jackson develops a must-read story that engages. A well-developed plot, charismatic characters, and spine-tingling drama make this an excellent recommended read.
