ABOUT THE BOOK
If I’d had any idea what those words would mean to me, to my mother and daughter, I’d have fled California without looking back.
While driving a rural road, Hannah Shire and her aging mother, who suffers from dementia, stop to help a man at the scene of a car accident. The man whispers mysterious words in Hannah’s ear. Soon people want to kill Hannah and her mother for what they “know.” Even law enforcement may be involved.
The two women must flee for their lives. But how does Hannah hide her confused mother? Carol just wants to listen to her pop music, wear her favorite purple hat, and go home. And if they turn to Hannah’s twentyseven- year-old daughter, Emily, for help, will she fall into danger as well?
Pressed on all sides, Hannah must keep all three generations of women in her family alive. Only then does she learn the threat is not just to her loved ones, but the entire country . . .

MY REVIEW-Brandilyn Collins is one author known for her suspense and thriller writing. If you want something good in that department, you can always pick up one of her books. So I knew this one would be good. The plot sounded interesting, the characters were different(not often you have an 80 year old woman in a mystery) and the author has an impeccable writing style. What more do you want?
I immediately fell in love with Carol. She is 82 years old and likes things her way. Forget the bad guys after them, she wants what she wants. And she expects to get it! Otherwise, screaming! I felt bad for Hannah. She has a lot on her plate but she does it very well. The characters aren't perfect and have their trouble and their flaws but that makes you like them even more. Loved this book and can't wait for Brandilyn Collins next book!
