Since her fiance's tragic death, Laney rarely leaves her home, and even then it's only for emergencies. Over time, she becomes a recluse. Loneliness begins to dominate her life, but it's the overwhelming fear that controls it. She manages to survive -- barely -- on food delivery services and her work-at-home job. When she tries to move on from her grief the commemorative meal she orders is ruined, but it leads to an unlikely friendship with an attractive man who speaks little English.
Bojan feels awful about delivering the ruined meal. He befriends Laney out of compassion for her circumstances and the sense that she needs him. Unfortunately, he continually says the wrong things, upsetting her. But Bojan is determined to win her trust -- and perhaps her heart.
As the two grow closer, Laney has this strange feeling of being watched and wonders if she's losing her mind. Complicating things further, the few times she leaves her house something goes wrong, confirming that she is safer at home.
Can Bojan convince Laney she'll be safe with him, or will his presence put her in further danger?
The man shifted his feet and tucked his ball cap under his arm. His grin faded and his brow furrowed. Maybe he'd never made a delivery before and didn't know what to say. He grew serious as he scanned her face, settling on her mouth for a fraction of a second, before returning to her eyes.
"Where's Tom?" Her voice trembled, betraying her still-fragile emotions, her fear.
"Sick. He has bad cold." The corner of his mouth curved upward, and he held out the boxes containing her order. "Your food?"
"Please, come in?" she asked again and licked her lips, a nervous habit that used to drive her sister crazy. What she wouldn't do to have her sister back, even if it meant getting nagged about her quirks all the time.
The man nodded and averted his eyes as he stepped inside, then captured her gaze again. A deep, tender expression teased his suntanned face.
Warmth melted her insides. It should be illegal to heat a woman's heart with an intimate glance within minutes of meeting her.
Though the same intense look in the past before Sam would've made her desire an invitation to dinner, this man's attention made her melt on the spot. If only dating didn't require leaving the safety of her house.

Michelle Sutton's Danger at the Door is an awesome read. Don't be turned off by the ebook format. I was at first because after sitting at computer all day, I wanted to read a book that I could hold in my hands. I'm so glad that I downloded Danger at the Door. Michelle has developed some very memorable characters and a love interest that's to die for. If you like suspense, you'll love it. I haven't read anything in the suspense line this good in about a year since I finished the Brandilyn Collins Kanner Lake series. The suspense is light, just enough to make you keep reading to make sure the heroine is safe. Michelle is an excellent writer who kept me up way too late into the night and made me get up way too early on a Saturday morning with bagel in hand to finish the novel. Even though she brought it to a funny and delightful close, I still begged for more. If you're like me and you love it, we'll have more to love, as I've heard that the sequel is coming out in April. Michelle Sutton you've outdone yourself and I can't wait to read what's coming next in the lives of these two wonderful characters.

"I enjoyed how the author showed how even in depression the heroine was able to be strong and find happiness. It wasn’t easy…but she persevered. The relationship between Laney and Bojan was written with just the right amount of actions to make it very real. The suspense in the story also gave it that extra element that made it all work." - Night Owl Reviews

"Michelle Sutton immediately drew me in with this delightful story. I could relate to Laney and understand the mourning she was putting herself through. An exhilarating read, yet entertaining, this reader felt it carried a superb plot and storyline. I adored the refreshing characters of Laney and Boki. Both have emotions that the reader can get a sensation for and share. Boki definitely seems sincere, and Laney, with all the events that she has struggled with in her life, is painted a convincing player that this reader found fascinating."
