Starting over is never easy and MaryBeth Cashour is living proof of that. After her husband's tragic death, she discovers he left her with nothing but the shirt on her back. Recovering from that she goes home to struggle through the final days of her mother's life. MaryBeth has been kicked, hard but she is going to be stronger from this she just knows that for sure.
MaryBeth knows she can start life fresh in the small coastal town she now lives in, running the local craft store. The other thing MaryBeth knows is that there is a dead guy on the beach in front of her. Can things get any worse; probably she seems to be a magnet for trouble these days.
The police think she is involved, her late husband may not be dead at all, the mob is coming after her, and the pharmacist next door really does present a nice view from the back. When nothing in life adds up anymore, you can always count on friends. The friends may be new but still good people helping MaryBeth out with some great advice and even better brownies. Trying to dodge trouble is proving harder than one might think. MaryBeth gets closer to some answers and yet further away from the facts that were the life she once lived. If her husband is not dead is she still married or maybe the woman in the other room is his wife now that MaryBeth had him declared dead? Too many questions lead to a headache and tears over a situation she has no control and is getting worse by the second.
What a great ride Maggie Toussaint takes her readers on. This book has mystery, suspense, some romance, and a touch of daring all from our leading woman, MaryBeth!
