Not much can go wrong when you're traveling first-class with your fabulously wealthy boyfriend--until you find his wife's body in your hotel suite.

Convinced she's next on Nick Noble's hit list, Jennifer Chaise takes off down the Vegas Strip armed with only her wits and a Kate Spade bag full of money. Giving herself a drastic makeover--complete with a new name--she lands herself a waitressing job in a nearby town. For someone used to private jets and waterfront condos, the change in lifestyle couldn't be greater. Yet, oddly enough, Jennifer couldn't be happier.

And then she meets Alex Nichols. One of the Las Vegas police department's finest, he's everything she's ever wanted. But when Nick's bodyguards arrive in town, Jennifer knows that if she wants a future she's going to have to deal with her past....

Jennifer had it all - she had a nice condo, jewelry, vacations, and side investments with the money she earned. When Nick, her current boyfriend, takes her to Vegas for a gambling trip, she is surprised when his wife shows up. Jennifer almost walked in on a blow up of major proportions but later, when she returns, she thinks she sees the wife dead. Jennifer runs and finds comfort and a job in Boulder City, Nevada. She befriends many and finds that she likes her new life and the new man. She is helping a teenager deal with a rough life and helping a friend house sitting.e When Nick shows up again, things go south. With the help of Alex (a cop and her current boyfriend), and his partner, they track Jennifer down and do what they need to bring her home. A great read that has some suspense and romance. Love Robyn Carr's writing - she never disappoints.

This was a new to me, did not read it before. So I really enjoyed it. There was the unknown
element to keep you guessing but I just enjoyed the story.
Believable? No! But that's why it's fiction.
If you like Robyn Carr and have not read all of her older books this is
worth your time.

Ditto to below comment! Thought perhaps she'd redid the book from middle on, so kept Reading? Rather irratated! To many Great Books to Waste time on Fluff! Yes, she has written a number of books I like, but not to read twice!

This is a reprint of author's 2005 book Runaway Mistress. Why isn't there anything to note this without getting the book?
