Intro:  A whoosh and soft impact jolted Abby’s body.  She slid forward.  The seat belt caught her and snapped her back.  Pain ripped through her temple.  What happened?  Her vision blurred, and she rubbed her eyes to clear it.

The steering wheel and dashboard came into focus.  She was sitting in the front seat of her Subaru sedan.  Ice pellets bounced off her windshield.  When had it started to sleet?  Blinking hard, she stared through the glass.  Water splashed over the hood.

Oh my God.

Teaser:  Ethan looked down at his notebook.  So far, all he’d written was doesn’t remember two hours before accident. (p. 22).

From Amazon:  From the moment Officer Ethan Hale pulls Abby Foster from icy waters, he senses there’s more to her than meets the eye. Abby has no memory of the accident that submerged her car in the frozen river. Three years ago, Abby was kidnapped and abandoned in a well for a week. The botched police investigation nearly killed her. Abby had moved to the mountains of Pennsylvania for a fresh start, but when it becomes clear that this car crash wasn’t an accident, she knows the violence from her past has caught up with her.

But Abby’s former assailant was convicted and imprisoned, so who else wants her dead?

Ethan uncovers a fresh string of murders tied to Abby’s past. Someone is trying to kill her, and this time the stalker seems determined to finish the task. As the killer grows bolder, Abby begins to trust Ethan enough to share the truth, her heart, and her life. But to stop the murders, Ethan must make a decision that could jeopardize it all.

I love the sound of this one, and having enjoyed every previous book in this series, I am eager to keep reading.  What do you think?
