This is wow. After reading ‘The Secret Sister’, this is a masterpiece compared to that.
The rich and powerful Josephine Lazarow, matriarch of Fairham Island, is dead. The police say it’s suicide, but Keith, her estranged son, doesn’t believe it.
Keith bears scars—both physical and emotional—from his childhood, but he’s worked hard to overcome the past. After walking away from his mother and her controlling ways five years ago, he’s built a new life in LA. He’s also accumulated a fortune of his own. But as soon as he learns of his mother’s death, he returns to Fairham. He feels he owes it to his grandfather to put the family empire together again—and he’s determined to find his mother’s killer.
Problem is…coming home to Fairham puts him back in contact with Nancy Dellinger, the woman he hurt so badly when he left before. And digging that deep into his mother’s final days and hours entails a very real risk.
Because the person who killed her could be someone he loves…
While reading the first book, we know how demanding and cold their mother Josephine Lazarow is. Now that she’s dead, the secrets their mother had been keeping is revealed. And one might be too disgusting for me to imagine it. Yes. You might guess it right though.
The suspense kept building up when more secrets are being revealed. And the tension between Keith and Nancy is adding the drama more dramatic.
I truly enjoy this book as though I’m watching the drama unfold right in front of me.
