Winter Meadow is a hypnotist--has been since she was a young girl surviving the foster care system. One of her clients, Jack Lancaster needs help focusing while in a lucid dream state and Winter is the perfect anchor and guide. While they are together on Eclipse Island, a man stalking Winter attacks them. Jack doesn't buy into the stalker theory--immediately assuming that he is the target because Jack and his family have been tracking the man who killed his mother in a fire at a cult's compound years before. (Sound confusing? It is rather but once you figure it all out--its worth the time invested!) Long lost sons, pyramid schemes, FBI consultants, hit men and conspiracy plots--scramble all together with a heaping measure of romance and you have the latest Jayne Ann Krentz novel. I am an avid fan of Krentz no matter which pen name she is writing under and I will admit that I love them all but this is not one of her best.
