When Hannah Rabourn, daughter of Rabourn Theater’s late owner, is attacked, a surge of flashes prompts her to consider that her father may have been murdered. Hannah’s antagonistic stage director insists her subconscious is merely seeking closure. But as she and Evan become close once again, Hannah’s suspicions about the past deepen, and she wonders whether the man she’s falling in love with for the second time knows more than he’s letting on.

Evan Masters’s dreams were shattered when theater-owner Baron Rabourn destroyed his budding acting career. Having forged an alliance with Rabourn’s former partner, Evan assumed a mission to transform Rabourn Theater into what it always should have been. Fellow conspirators believe Rabourn’s daughter is the key to power, and Evan is the means by which to achieve their ends.

But Evan’s feelings for Hannah are stronger than he believed. And when he realizes Hannah’s life is in danger, he must decide between his passion and his heart.

My Review:

First, let me begin by saying, I’ve never read theatrical suspense. I’m skeptical about whether or not It’ll hold my attention.

Hannah & Evan share a love that neither one of them are willing to admit to. They’re both equally passionate about the theater which, both draws suspicion and keeps that spark alive between them. I loved the way they didn’t want to love and the way they hated. The tension between them is palpable. I felt like I was in every scene.

In the beginning, there are many characters introduced; but as the story goes on I began to understand why. Pay close attention, because each character has a purpose. The author did a great job making each character seem as if they were in some way involved in Hannah’s father’s death. It’s very well written. It definitely kept me intrigued until the end.

For those looking for a good suspense novel to keep you guessing, with intense romance; I definitely recommend. Are you a fan of the theater? Yes? Then, you must read this book!
