Destiny has finally found the life that she has always wanted. She is about to finish college, has a fiance that loves her, and a great summer on the West Coast planned with her friend, Stephanie. But her world is turned upside down when an antique clock mysteriously chimes thirteen times and someone attacks them, sending Stephanie and her mother to the hospital.
Alone, and without any help from the police, Destiny has no choice but to turn to the one man she had left behind a year ago - her ex-boyfriend, David. Together, they must solve the riddle of the thirteenth chime before the clock strikes thirteen again. Yet as they face their own past and hearts, a trap over half a century old is waiting for them to become its prey. 
For revenge, fifty years is never too long...

My Take: 
When it comes to books that knock you out with every word there are just a few words that most authors look for is greatness. Without a doubt this had me guessing to see where the lines connected. By the time I finished the last line I wanted more, this book left me speechless and I had to tell myself that number 2 is out soon. Emma has given all bloggers out there hope of being published I love the fact she introduced me into this world (which I am now afraid of clocks and wondering what is inside. This was not your typical vacation that you hope for but a fight to who really did all the bad things and the suspense had me thinking all kinds of scenarios. I loved that Destiny could call up an ex and he comes, David has a hold on my heart after this one, he had me screaming inside telling him to go here and there. It was so crazy I believe my neighbors thought I was actually yelling at my phone and not the book. Having met with the awesomeness that is Emma in person i was able to think wow this red head has the stuff to become something out there and I can't wait to see what she can brings us. She has one of the brightest futures out there and I can't wait to see her again. I never thought that sense does matter in the end. 

5/5 stars
