Description:

Kathy Spence awakens in the middle of the night and finds herself in a living nightmare. Her husband has been run down and she is the primary suspect. With an eyewitness to the crime and proof that her car was the murder weapon, it appears to be an open and shut case. Terrified for her future, Kathy turns to amateur sleuth Anne Marshall for help. Believing in Kathys innocence, Anne launches her own investigation, uncovering proof of a conspiracy that reaches from Kathys past and threatens her own life. In a race against time, Anne must count on her close friends and even the ghost of her father to help her bring a killer to justice before its too late!

My Thoughts:

This book was sent to me via the Cadence Group and it's about a murder mystery. When Kathy Spence's husband gets murdered, who's the murderer. Kathy Spence has been hiding some ugly skeleton's in her closet. Mainly her ability not to be able to have children. Meanwhile the love shown between Kathy and Elliot is enough to over come the childless situation. When Elliot is murdered it becomes hard for Kathy's friend Shirley to even comprehend how Kathy can be blamed let alone be the prime suspect in his death. It's up to Anne and her classmates to figure what happened to their beloved Professor Elliot Spence.

This was a great read. It had humorous parts like listening to disputes while Anne makes sense of the real case she is working on. The bond between a father and daughter which can surpass a life and death bond. It kept you wanting to see how things were figured out and if the bad guys were ever going to get caught. And a 15 year old mystery connected the dots. Definitely a great read. Can't wait to see what the author will come up with next.

"How much of what we have done in our younger and naive years has haunted us as adults? "

Not much. But still I must admit I sometimes regret some decisions taken without too much thinking about the possible future consequences. I suppose few people have solid, stinky skeletons in their cupboard (it happens definitely not as often as in fiction) but plenty of them regret their juvenile choices from time to time. Sorry for the first post - I bungled it.
