Edge of Recall by Kristen Heitzmann
If you like a good tense read, this is it.
Edge of Recall by Kristen Heitzmann will keep you up all night. It's the story of a young woman with "issues." Her colleague and one-time boyfriend calls her a "high maintenance woman" and her psychiatrist keeps trying to get her to tell him the real underlying problem that won't let her go. She keeps telling him she isn't holding anything back, but the nightmares are always there. The obsession with labyrinths keeps her searching.
When Tess gets a phone call from Smith Chandler, the architect who broke her heart and betrayed her long ago, all the issues rise to the surface. Her psychiatrist tells her it's too dangerous for her to work on a labyrinth and be close to Smith, but she can't say no to the job he offers her.
Then strange things start happening at the remote site where they are working. Things are moved or disappear all together. Tess and the others sense they are being watched. And Tess begins to see things and hear things that drive her to the speed dial on her phone so the psychiatrist can keep it all under control.
But then Smith is attacked and Tess becomes the primary suspect.
