About the book
The grieving widow. The other woman. Which one is which?
When Cameron Swift is shot and killed outside his family home, DC Beth Chamberlain is appointed Family Liaison Officer. Her role is to support the family – and investigate them.
Monika, Cameron’s partner and mother of two sons, had to be prised off his lifeless body after she discovered him. She has no idea why anyone would target Cameron.
Beth can understand Monika’s confusion. To everyone in their affluent community, Monika and her family seemed just like any other. But then Beth gets a call.
Sara is on holiday with her daughters when she sees the news. She calls the police in the UK, outraged that no one has contacted her to let her know or offer support. After all, she and Cameron had been together for the last seven years…
Until Cameron died, Monika and Sara had no idea each other existed.
As the case unfolds, Beth discovers that nothing is quite as it appears and everyone, it seems, has secrets. Especially the dead…

My reading taste has changed so much over the years and these days I live for books like this!
This is a multi-layered mystery that kept me interested and engaged from beginning to end. I think it’s down to the well thought out plot and really engaging characters – they could each be anyone you’d meet in your normal day to day life.
Without giving anything away (I hope!), I will say that I don’t like a book that leaves loose ends – even if it is part of a series. This book tied everything up really nicely, with plenty of tension thrown in, which ensures that the book can be enjoyed by everyone.
I’m really, really looking forward to reading more of this series.
Many thanks to Aria and Netgalley for my copy of this book, which was given with no pressure for a review.
