The book starts explosively, with Nina suspecting someone wants her dead after she’s caught her husband, Connor, cheating. A wealthy woman because of her first husband, her company is extremely successful. Connor is typed as a philandering husband who wants her money. That plays out from the start with him returning to see his high school sweetheart, Tabatha.
I thought the storyline was fun in the unfolding. Both Tabatha and Nina’s stories are given to us in bits and pieces. Nina’s from the first meeting she had with Connor. The heart of the storyline didn’t kick in until the last quarter of the book and I thought that was unique.
The characters weren’t all that deep, so there was no connection to them at all. Tabatha isn’t much of a character, she has no strong personality one way or the other until she’s under investigation. Only then do we see that she doesn’t know how to keep quiet when people are repeatedly telling her that speaking up hurts her more than staying silent. (Which drove me a bit nuts.)
It took me a while to get into the book, which surprised me considering the way it started. But once I got into it, I was hooked. It’s a fun, well-told storyline. Overall, a fun read.
Thank you St. Martin’s for sending this along!
