A husband's lies can have deadly consequences.
When Juliet Cole's husband of fifteen years is murdered before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning, then returns home to break the tragic news to her boys.
But a threatening voicemail takes this from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack. Juliet realizes that she and her children are in danger too, unless she meets the killers' demands. But as she and her sisters untangle the clues, her husband's dark secrets come to light. The more she learns, the more of her life is dismantled.
Was her husband an innocent victim or a hardened criminal?
Cafe Lily's Review:
I am a huge Terri Blackstock fan and this book is a great example of why. Usually, I don't enjoy suspense but Terri has a way of writing that just connects me immediately to her characters and plot. Both are very believable and I could not put this book down.
Juliet Cole not only suffers when her husband is gunned down right in front of her, but she also suffers a loss of the life she thought she had with him. As the investigation into his death unfolds, secrets begin to emerge and Juliet wonders if she ever really knew her husband at all.
Each chapter draws readers in a little deeper to a very fast paced, complex story line that leaves you wanting more.
This is a great stand alone novel - however with all series books, I highly suggest reading them in order to get a good background on the characters. I *hope* there is a third book in this series - I would love to spend more time with these characters.
