Blurb; Tabitha Girard had her heart broken years ago by Connor Ford. He was preppy and handsome. She was a pool girl at his country club. Their affair should have been a summer fling. But it meant everything to Tabitha.
Years later, Connor comes back into Tabitha’s life—older, richer, and desperately unhappy. He married for money, a wealthy, neurotic, controlling woman whom he never loved. He has always loved Tabitha.
When Connor’s wife Nina takes her own life, he’s free. He can finally be with Tabitha. Nina’s home, Windswept, can be theirs. It seems to be a perfect ending to a fairy tale romance that began so many years ago. But then, Tabitha finds a diary. “I’m writing this to raise an alarm in the event of my untimely death,” it begins. “If I die unexpectedly, it was foul play, and Connor was behind it. Connor—and her.”
Who is Connor Ford? Why did he marry Nina? Is Tabitha his true love, or a convenient affair? As the police investigate Nina’s death, is she a convenient suspect?
As Tabitha is drawn deeper into the dark glamour of a life she is ill-prepared for, it becomes clear to her that what a wife knows can kill her.
My Review; This was my second book of 2020 and another belter of a read. It’s dark, deadly and dangerous. What really happened to Nina? There is so much more to this story than just a who did it? It’s clever. Twisted. Dark. Well thought out. It even contains a shoot out scene! Phew. Kept me turning the pages. Hooked. Gripping. Thrilling.
I must admit though that I was on Tabithas side from the start she didn’t even know what she was about to get herself into poor woman. It’s a fast paced, action packed read where plenty of secrets and hidden motives will soon be out in the open. Its true what they say… Money does cause a lot of fights, deaths and secrets. This is all about money… A lot of money.
A happyish ending for Tabitha, she deserved it! Plenty of characters got what were coming to them. Brilliantly written. Another that messed with my head at how clever it all was and who did what to who etc. You can’t trust anyone. This is a story where history appears again and not in a good light. A brilliant read. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
