Upon her arrival she is shocked to find herself in the tail end moments of a murder. From that moment one Meg sets the task of helping Jillian through this time of mourning and to find her mother's murderer.
Along with help from her father, an ex-homicide detective and his retired medical examiner pal, Doc Meg quickly finds herself in the center of maze of lies, revenge and a full load of this family's dirty laundry.
I enjoyed this book immensely it gave you a lot of suspects to look at and kept me guessing, switching up who I though was likely the one who was the murderer. The author created a wonderful intricate web of stories and clues it kept me reading, I almost finished the book in one sitting.
The set of characters in this story are engaging and identifiable. I found I respected Meg as a strong, independent woman with a disadvantage that didn't stop her from doing what she wanted and in her own way.
There is also a fair amount of likable male characters, Cole the prodigal son, Van the surfer, Adam the charmer and Doc the protector.
