As a teenager, Jane Killian's life was changed when she was hit by a motorboat as she swam in a lake. Now 15 years later, after many successful surgeries, Jane has a thriving career in art, a handsome husband, and a baby on the way. But her world splinters when her husband, Dr. Ian Westbrook, becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation led by Jane's stepsister, Detective Stacy Killian. Stacy doesn't want to believe her brother-in-law is a murderer, but all evidence is pointing to him. Jane trusts that her husband is innocent. But when another body turns up with even more evidence linking Ian to the crime, Jane begins to wonder if her sister is right.
Wow! This book was a page-turner. There is so much going on in it. Not only do we have a series of murders, but Jane starts receiving anonymous notes from someone she believes hit her with his boat many years ago. The story is told from the point of view of both Jane and Stacy. One believes her husband is innocent. The other wants to catch a killer, even if it hurts her sister in the end.
The characters in this story are well developed. The clues are plentiful. I thought I had everything figured out up until the last few pages. Then came the twist that left me stunned. I'll definitely be reading the next book in the Stacy Killian series. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
I really enjoyed this book. It was fast-paced and had some twists that I wasn't expecting. I enjoyed reading about the dynamic of Jane and her sister. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
A great read - a real page turner that will keep you up well past your bedtime!!!
