Release Date: May 7, 2023
Aaron’s life shatters in the aftermath of his best friend’s sudden, bizarre death. He firmly believes her demise was no mere accident, as the authorities ruled, but a cold-blooded murder. Driven to the brink of despair by the relentless media shadowing his every move, accusing him of causing her death, he needs a place to hide. Salvation dawns in an unexpected inheritance — the dense, sprawling wilderness of his great aunt’s East Texas estate. There, he discovers another surprise: his first love recently moved back to the area. She intrigued him at fourteen; she completely captivates him at twenty-six.
The discovery of a woman’s body on his property is chillingly timed on the grim anniversary of his friend’s death, shaking Aaron to his core. He realizes the bloodthirsty killer has delivered a disturbingly personal message to him: You cannot hide from me. Suddenly, his secluded sanctuary is exposed, a beacon for the merciless media relentlessly searching for him. He fortifies his estate, transforming it into a fortress against what he understands now is an inevitable attack. The murderer’s tightening noose of fear threatens to ensnare him. Outsmarting this ruthless predator has become a deadly game of chess, where every move could be his last.

This story is one that is full of twists and turns with a mysterious threat always in the background. It focuses on a very rich man who has witnessed a devastating accident that killed his friend. He himself has not quite gotten his head wrapped around what happened and the whole situation haunts him. Not only that, but he is a famous Winslow which means paparazzi seek him out. He has many homes around the world, but the people know all about them. So, when he inherits his aunt's estate in Texas, he decides to become a recluse and live there for as long as he can.
Aaron does his best to do everything remotely and get what he wants through his hired people. However, he cannot avoid people forever and he realizes there are some he would actually like to get to know better. In fact, his first crush is one of the people who is working on the estate. Could he get to know her better? But as Aaron finds out, we are not meant to be alone, and he suddenly finds himself with people around. Not only that but the one who is after him, has not given up.
This was a good story that slowly unraveled its mysteries and secrets from the beginning throughout the entire novel. Hooking the reader with the eeriness of it all and getting inside of Aaron's head and not letting go till the last page.
I was provided a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

More from Tamara
I’m an East Texan, through and through. You should hear me talk! There is no mistaking that I’m from Texas. So, one day, I was wondering: what would it be like if a New Yorker moved to East Texas? Better yet, let’s make him a billionaire New Yorker who wants nothing to do with “rednecks” but is forced to move to Texas. What would motivate him to move there, especially when he’s made it very clear that he wants nothing to do with Texas or Texans?
Running for his life would work. Suddenly, he needs a place to hide. The people after him know of his other homes and have them staked out. So, where could he go? His great-aunt Dottie dies and wills her 6,000-acre estate in East Texas to him. Perfect! It sets him up nicely where he doesn’t want to be. And to add icing to this Texas cake? His first love at fourteen recently moved back to the area where he’d met her on one of his family’s rare visits with Aunt Dottie.
But life doesn’t settle down for him. Of course, it doesn’t, right?
And that’s how this book came about. I love Aaron. Every day, I couldn’t wait to get back to him and his story. He has so much to give and doesn’t even know it. As one of the “walking wounded,” he’s going to discover what really matters in life, but it’s not going to be easy for him.
One thing that’s somewhat different about me as a writer is that I don’t outline my books. I sit at my computer and let the characters tell me their stories. Sounds a little weird, doesn’t it? But it works for me. They take me in all kinds of directions! When the first draft is finished, I consider it my “outline.” Now, the fun begins with editing!
I love writing. I love storytelling. “Revenge” is one of my favorite stories and, yes, I fell a little bit in love with Aaron. I hope you do, too.
