Severn House continues to publish hardcover editions of Harris' early paperback orginals. This time it's a southern gothic, featuring a strong female lead in her late twenties. Former model Nickie returns to her hometown to finish college and moves in with her best friend from boarding school. But coming home means more than going back to school as she must deal with her estranged parents and confront her long suppressed feelings for her best friend's older brother. Matters are complicated by the presence of a rapist on campus who attacks both Nickie and her advisor. Convinced that the assailant is someone she knows, Nickie sets out to track him down. Mixing a touch of romance with a suspenseful thriller plot, Harris turns out a top-notch read with wide appeal to genre fans. She doesn't hesitate to tackle tough issues head-on; her college-town setting is realistically and evocatively portrayed; and her cast of characters is nicely multidimensional. Harris is due to conclude her wildly popular Sookie Stackhouse series later this year. At that point, she might want to consider a return to stand-alones. --Booklist Starred Review, September 1, 2011
