Judy Gardner had met Rick Evans nearly a year before in her hometown of Hilton, Utah. Now with her graduation looming he has unexpectedly turned up at a local bar under the pretense of being security for her brother, Michael. When Judy and her friend, Meg, decide to move to California after graduation and Judy gets a job at a local architects, Rick finds this the perfect opportunity to spend more time with Judy. Although her head says no to a relationship, her heart doesn’t follow the conviction, and with a stalker out to cause her harm, it is only a matter of time before Rick and Judy find that there is more to their relationship than Hollywood star’s sister and her bodyguard.
Grittier storyline again. Judy finds herself attracting the attention of a stalker who doesn’t keep his distance and unfortunately Rick becomes the prime suspect. Leaving her hometown and her almost suffocating parents, Judy isn’t looking for a relationship of any kind but Rick can be quite tenacious but not a creepy way.
I do enjoy how this series builds on the characters, introducing new people for future stories and past characters making an appearance, with little snippets of what is going on in their lives. Rick and Judy’s story is no different.
This one will make you stop and think about just who might be watching you. If only we all had a big, buff bodyguard!
