Summary

Safety is just an illusion.... 

An illusion shattered by the whisper of footsteps in the darkness behind her.  

Holly has drifted from one place to the next for as long as she can remember, never settling long enough to build a life. It's the only way she knows how to survive in a world that has no place for someone like her. But when mysterious footsteps follow her home, and she finds a cryptic note taped to her door, she realizes she's stayed too long.  

The man she's hiding from has found her. But how?   

When people start dying and old, forgotten memories begin to surface, Holly finds herself wrapped up in a terrifying mystery with God, a pushy Southern detective, and a killer with one thing on his mind: her.

Edge of your seat!

This was a little intense...if you are into finish it fast because gotta know how it turns out then this is for you. The narrator did a good job with all the characters. The author made you see what was going on like you're watching a movie. Didn't contain sexual immorality or cursing which I really appreciated!

I'll read more C.C. Warrens, but not Holly Cross

Excellent writing. Well plotted story. Memorable characters. However, if there is a bad decision to make, Holly (our protagonist) will make it. This can make for interesting writing but here it goes too far.

By chapter 18 I lost all empathy for Holly. By chapter 21 I was actively hoping she would get killed and someone with some common sense would finish the story and bring her stalker to justice. It's a harsh reaction, but somewhere along the way Holly's active obstruction of the people trying to help her, even as she criticizes them for not doing it better, caused me to grow disaffected with the character. I finished the book (on x3 speed) and while I enjoyed the secondary characters I never regained an emotional connection with Holly.

C.C. Warrens is a talented author. I look forward to reading other books by her, but the Holly Cross series will not be among them.

This book.

This book lures you in like the sweet smell of hot cocoa with marshmallows. I enjoyed every bit of this book, even the part where I got a little on edge and had to make sure my doors were locked. Best read with your sweet of choice.

Likable characters but unbelievable

Holly is fiercely independent but scarred by her past. She asks questions and does things that are beyond stupid and annoying to the reader but necessary to draw the suspense out over book length. Kept me listening despite my frustration because I cared about the characters.
To say more would be to be a spoiler

Had a good storyline

This book has way too many adjectives, very wordy, and at times very unrealistic directions. For instance (I’ll be vague spas not to give anything away) at one point a police officer shows up alone, when he had more then enough time to call for backup, enters a building gets attacked, recovers, travels through the building and then calls for backup… Lastly, very rarely was Christ referred to, although there were many appropriate times available…

Loved this book!

This book was awesome! The characters came alive and I found myself laughing at the jokes and tearing up and afraid for Holly at times! I can't wait to listen to the 2nd one!
