After years away, Jessie Rayburn has finally returned home unwelcomed to a town of menacing whispers: Baron Hollow, North Carolina.  It’s a though she never left.  That’s why she’s so afraid. 
She left behind her estranged sister, Emma, who has her own secrets to protect.  But Emma is afraid to reveal what’s really troubling her and keeping her awake at night.  Strange dreams of women being murdered brutaly, viciously are haunting her in her sleep.  Now, in this conspiracy of silence, Emma’s bad dreams are becoming more real than ever. 
Even with the help of Noah Bishop, cofounder of Haven, the group of psychic investigators that Jessie works for, Jessie and Emma fear they won’t be able to outrun the secrets buried in Baron Hollow or the evil targeting them one last time. 
My Review:
Jessie Rayburn returns home to Baron Hollow, North Carolina after a fifteen year absence.  At age seventeen, she hopped into her car, left the town and never turned back.  Her fifteen year old sister, Emma stayed behind and is now running the family’s Inn.
Something happened that last night in Baron Hollow that Jessie just can’t remember.  All she knows is that it was bad and it was sinister and it was cruel.  She has returned to town after all these years to try and remember the missing memories of that night and try to repair her estranged relationship with her sister, Emma.
Jessie works for Haven, a subsidiary of the FBI.  A group of psychics with varying paranormal abilities work there and each works on cases according to their special talents. 
Jessie knows there will be lots of whispers about why she is suddenly back in town after such a long absence but she doesn’t really care.  She NEEDS to know what happened to her that night.
Meanwhile, Emma has been having horrendous nightmares about various women being murdered in brutal ways.  She doesn’t know if these dreams are real and if somewhere women really are being murdered as she sees them in her dreams or if they’re just that – dreams.
When a planted psychic operative from Haven is posted in Baron Hollow to keep an eye on Jessie, he stumbles upon a female body and it’s one of the women that Emma dreamed about.  Is this really happening then?  But no one has reported this woman missing.  What is going on?
Kay Hooper has penned another thriller.  This is a sit-at-the-edge-of-your-seat read that will keep you turning the pages until the very end.
