Don’t Blink : *This book was previously published under the titles The Girl in the Rain and The Girl in the Storm.*
Two years ago, Paige Wilson watched helplessly as her brother Ryan was shot, right on her doorstep.
He survived the attack, but never fully recovered from the trauma.
Stuck in a wheelchair, Ryan refuses to accept the life of a paraplegic. His idea of fun is coming up with new ways to torment Paige, who has sacrificed her own happiness to care for him.
He feels she’s responsible for what happened to him that night, and he’s determined to make her life a living hell.
Pushed to her limits, Paige wants to turn her back on her brother’s abuse, but when she finally takes steps toward getting her life back, tragedy strikes.
One day she’s walking toward her freedom, and the next, she’s on the run. A terrible crime has been committed and she might be in danger.
She finds safety and a new life in the small town of Faypine, Maine. But someone knows her hiding place, and they are determined to use her secrets to tear her world apart. They will stop at nothing to get rid of her.
This is a dark and disturbing page-turner that you won’t be able to put down.
“Shortly before he left town six months ago, we had a major blowout when I discovered he stole money from me, minutes after I’d given him most of what I had left for the month.
But he’s my brother, my responsibility. I’d rather give him the money than have him get it elsewhere illegally and ending up in prison like our father.
I’m five years older than Ryan, and I’d just turned nineteen when Mom died. The day of the funeral, I promised Ryan I would take care of him, and do a better job than our parents ever did.
The first years were tough as I worked multiple part-time jobs to care for my depressed brother while pursuing a distance, scholarship-financed degree in education and mathematics, determined to build a solid future for us.
I never once wavered on my promises to him. But it hurts when Ryan now uses those very promises to take advantage of me.
I force air into my lungs, my hand tight around the door handle. Then I allow a smile to curl my lips.
Six months is a long time. Maybe he’s changed. If he hasn’t, he’s in for a great surprise. Things are no longer the way he left them. “
