Synopsis: I don't walk past the house next door. I wish the woman who lives in it was dead. Which makes it hard ...because she was the one who came running when I screamed. Kat Jones is woken by an intruder looming over her bed. She's saved by Edwina - the neighbour Kat believes betrayed her dying mother. Her dad issues an ultimatum. Either spend nights next door, or accept another intruder in her life - Hercules, the world's ugliest guard dog. It's a n no-brainer, even for dog-phobic Kat. When she meets adorkable Al at the dog park, finally Kat has someone to talk to, someone who cares. But the prowler isn't finished with Kat. To stop him, she needs Edwina's help ...and what Kat learns could mend fences - or break her fragile family apart forever
This story is full of intrusions. The intruder who invades Kat’s bedroom one night is just one such intrusion. The most painful intruder is Edwina, the next door neighbour. Kat is forced to spend time with Edwina after the night time call from an unknown and unwanted visitor. For Kat, this is the worst intrusion, as she dislikes Edwina with a passion. Hercules, another intruder helps Kat to overcome her phobia of dogs and forces Kat out of the house and to the dog park. At the park Kat is befriended by a fellow dog owner, who involves himself in Kat’s life. Another intrusion. Christine Bongers points out that not all intruders in our life are bad and not all intrusions are painful.
