Fear is just the beginning...Kristin Burns has lived her life by the philosophy, 'don't think, just shoot' - pictures that is.
Struggling to make ends meet, she works full time as nanny to the fabulously wealthy Turnbull family, looking after their two children and waiting for her life as a New York fashion photographer to begin. But Kristin has a major distraction: forbidden love.
The man of her dreams is almost hers for keeps. Kristin ignores all signs of catastrophe brewing, and she can only dismiss the warnings for so long...

Review by eleanor_eader
I put James Patterson aside a while ago, tiring of his crime fiction as they managed to become shallower in plot and character with every book I read. I picked this copy up in Oxfam (for 99p in pristine condition) and decided to give him another chance. I can’t say he hasn’t changed. He’s become a whole new author (hello, Mr. Roughan). There’s still an unsatisfactory lack of depth in everything from character to ability to convince the reader to suspend disbelief, or to even keep from rolling our eyes at the clichéd images. I still believe there’s a lot of creep to be found around the topic of cameras, but recycling lame ideas isn’t going to cut it. The principle character’s dreams, while obvious, were at least written with relish but if it had taken me more than an evening to finish this book, I wouldn’t have picked it up again. As it was, I made it to the end and instantly wished I’d stopped reading during the previous ‘ending’/paragraph, which at least didn’t negate the entire plot of the damn book.In summary: Oxfam can have it back. It’s still in pristine condition, apart from where I chewed the spine in disgust at what the male authors <i>still</i> believe women to consider romantic *performs clichéd girlish EYEROLL*
