Flawed people and flawed circumstances and one murder. The book caught my attention with the beginning when the husband and wife were both in prison for a murder.
Kiersten Modglin’s books are fast-paced and twisty. This book too was a fast read, could be read in a couple of hours easily. But it needed a bit more oomph to make it a perfect thriller. This was more of a domestic drama to begin with where the murder plot line was brought in earlier.
The story could keep me guessing, as I didn’t know who was murdered. I liked the pitting off a husband against a wife. That kept the pages turning. This was more of a breezy read where I didn’t have to keep the characters in track. There were only two of them.
The suspense came about in gentle waves and brought the story to a good close. Not the author’s very best, but on the whole, quite entertaining.

The word that brought me such great joy and, eventually, such heartbreak.
When Mark asked me out for the first time, I didn’t have to think twice.
I said, “Yes.”
When he asked me to marry him just a year later, the answer came as easily as the breath that followed it.
When he asked me to keep his secret, my response came too quickly.
Now, in front of a judge and jury, I’ll be asked the question I never anticipated.
“Did you know who the killer is?”
The answer is second nature by now.

I downloaded the digital version of the book from an online retail, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
