Description

Beautiful Sarah Winslow fell in love with handsome and sweet-talking Jackson Talbott while in college. She married him right out of law school when the couple eloped to Las Vegas, despite her family's concerns about Jack's motives. Sara thought she found her forever love.

Five years later, Sara has suffered one too many blows at the hands of the man who claimed to love her. She feels trapped by Jack's violent temper and his love of other women. How can a divorce attorney admit her husband's abuses and infidelity? After a nasty scene, Jack pushes Sara down the stairs. The young attorney grabs her beloved dog, flees her home, and files for divorce.

The Galveston County Sheriff's Office discovers Jackson's body at Red Fish Island the day after Sara blows up during a property settlement conference. She knows the police suspect she murdered him. To make matters worse, she learns Jack stole a valuable antique from the mob, and now they want to kill her.

Will she have to die to prove her innocence? Can she escape the mob contract on her head and prove her innocence, or will Jack's mafia ties destroy her?

This is a quirky, fun read, not to be taken too seriously by the reader! There's a lot going on and the book can fit into multiple genres from cosy mystery to crime thriller, mixed in with a bit of romance. The characterisation was a bit shallow and I failed to like any of the characters, but I loved the dog action in the book! I found it all a bit confusing trying to work it all out and eventually just gave up and finished the read! It would be a good light book to read whilst on holiday, it's just not for me. Thanks to Net Galley for my ARC.

I really enjoyed this book. It’s not something I would usually go for, but I was pleasantly surprised! The plot was amazing and I was completely thrown off when the attempted murderer was revealed. I do feel as that the ending was a bit abrupt and could have been given a few more chapters. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves thrill, excitement and a good scandal.
