I have read many of the author's novels and have yet to be disappointed. She is a born storyteller, who is able to craft sustainable and suspenseful romantic mysteries that rival those of Mary Higgins Clark. I am definitely a fan.
In this novel, Adrienne Reynolds, an artist living with her teenage daughter, Skye, in her home town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, is trying to get on with her life. She is a widow, having lost her husband several years prior to a tragic vehicular accident. Adrienne has a beau, of whom she is fond but with whom she is not in love. She is just trying to get on with her life, when tragedy strikes again. One of her best friends, Julianna, is found murdered at the hotel La Belle Riviere, a grand hotel scheduled for demolition.
Suddenly, other people that Adrienne knows are meeting unexpected accidents or deaths. Even Adrienne herself has been the target of this known killer, thwarted only by the intervention of Adrienne's secret heart throb. Moreover, it seems that a number of those near and dear to Adrienne are harboring some pretty dark secrets. It may be that the killer may even be someone near and dear to Adrienne. But who can it be?
The book has many twists and turns and, as often happens in the author's novels, the reader can certainly expect the unexpected. The story line movies at a brisk pace and is well-plotted. The reader can expect to be caught up in the story that the author has woven.
