When Kate’s beloved mother is murdered, her old friend Blaire comes back into town. They had a falling out at Kate’s wedding to Simon and have not talked since but Blaire was a big part of Kate’s family when they were friends. Blaire is now a big time mystery writer with her husband and she wants to help find out just what happened. Someone is sending Kate mysterious, creepy messages and gifts and it seems she might be next.
There is a lot going on here. Being a family of means, there are a lot of other people around them. (And I do enjoy reading about how the other half lives.) From lawyers to friends to the help, you begin to wonder about all of them. It was a bit confusing at times, trying to keep who was who in my head, but it did not make it that difficult to follow. You just have a long list of suspects but I have to say, I did not figure out the killer and was quite surprised. It ended on a creepy, great note.
If you enjoyed their first book, The Last Mrs. Parrish, you will enjoy this one as well.
Thanks to Netgalley and HarperCollins for a copy of this book.
