Money isn’t worth killing for, or is it?
When her estranged husband is murdered, Stacie Maroni Noth is quickly identified as the main suspect. With divorce papers not yet signed, she may get a substantial inheritance – a clear motive in the eyes of both Noth’s family and the police. His family and law firm strive to keep up the pretense that all is above reproach and idyllic.
In her quest to prove her innocence, however, Stacie discovers she’s not the only one with a motive for murder. Could it be a colleague at the prestigious law firm where he worked? Or is it tied to the victim’s stance on domestic violence? Or maybe even his threats to reveal family secrets?
Whatever the true motive may be, it soon becomes clear that Stacie might be the next victim.
I don’t think I have ever read every single word of a book before but I did this one. I did not guess who did it and I usually do. This is a good thing. Enjoyed the story very much. Light reading but that is what I like. Looking forward to next one. – Judy Bauer
An entertaining introduction to a new series. The main characters are likable, strong, independent women. It’s a quick read, perfect for a rainy afternoon, curled up in a comfy chair, with a great cup of coffee or tea. I am definitely going to read the next in the series. – Stephanie Jones
Great! A fairly gentle mystery but extremely enjoyable. I loved having a protagonist who acted intelligently! I was already a fan of Christa Nardi and was delighted to discover that she had the beginning of a new series out. Some real tension throughout but Stacey does not put herself in danger through her own actions. Looking forward to the next book in the series. – Jeanie Jackson
