Hannah Kline is a successful Los Angeles obstetrician and the recently widowed mother of a young daughter. She is barely managing to hold it all together, when her life is shattered once again by the brutal murder of her beautiful, bright, zany and recently divorced sister-in-law Beth.

Hannah is determined to do whatever she can to assist the police in finding the murderer. She soon becomes obsessed with the details of Beth's life. As she encounters her sister-in-law's eclectic collection of friends and former lovers, she discovers that all was not as it seemed. Not only was Beth a woman with a secret life, but her secrets may have led her inexorably to a rendezvous with her killer.

Inspired by the real-life murder of the author's cousin, this story has everything—mystery, heart, family, secrets and romance—as Hannah struggles to make sense of Beth's murder and bring the killer to justice.

    This book was great I couldn’t put it down. It was romantic, sad, and happy. I will probably read it again in the future. Make sure you have tissue when you read it. Thanks so much for sharing your story with me.
  • A bit disappointed

    By jfwmd
    Although the writing is decent the plot suffered from some major flaws. The concept that her sister-in-law is pregnant by a family member doesn't pan out. The likelihood that a infertility clinic would fertilize her with a genetic match is infinitesimal. Furthermore the accused and convicted murderer seems to have no real motive and the crime of passion seems a bit ridiculous. I expected more from a position to get the facts right.
  • Excellent reading!
