At the wise old age of 16, and for the very first time ever, Elizabeth Fitch defied her mother and did what she wanted to do. And people died. And Elizabeth witnessed the murders. And told the proper authorities. And the proper authorities charged with keeping Elizabeth safe, were murdered. And Elizabeth ran.
Now, 12 years later, it's time to come out of hiding. Being a Nora Roberts books, there's some romance involved in the decision. It does not detract from the story, not one little bit.
The Witness was excellent from the first word to the last. I highly recommend it for just about everyone. It has some blood and guts, some romance, some humor, and some great characters, including a wonderful dog. But it's not a cozy, so maybe a die-hard cozy fan won't like it. But I'm a pretty die-hard cozy fan, and I loved it.
