At twenty-nine, Toni Matthew is on the cusp of having it all—a successful career as one of the top real estate agents in Nashville, great friends, and the partner and family she’d always longed for in her fiancé, architect Scott Chadwick.

But just days before their planned nuptials, Scott plummets to his death at one of his construction sites and Toni is forced to bury her fiancé on their wedding day. Now living all alone in their new, custom-made dream house, dealing with her loss becomes even harder when the police rule his death a suicide. Yet Toni refuses to believe that it could be anything other than a tragic accident.

When she learns that Scott’s estranged brother, Brian, is contesting the will and threatening to take away her home, Toni starts to suspect that it may not have been a mere accident but something more sinister. Without the cooperation of the police, and in spite of her friends’ growing concern that she’s in denial and not dealing with her grief, Toni begins investigating on her own. As she crisscrosses Nashville on a mission to prove to herself and the world that Scott wouldn’t try to escape this life, Toni can’t shake the sinking feeling that something is off, that she’s being followed—and that her search for truth may have deadly consequences.

    " Has all the basic elements of a good thriller/mystery/suspense novel. A protagonist who is likeable. Well defined characters. A plausable plot. And last a plot where you don't see the twists coming for most of the book. Would recommend for those who like this genre. "

    " Murder jumps in in the first chapter, girl decides to prove her fiancee wasn't a suicide, a bit to formula but a couple of solid twists to the story make it a good read. "

    " I absolutely loved this novel. It kept me interested throughout, and the last few chapters provided film-worthy twists and turns. I would love to see this adapted to film, it was an absolutely amazing story beginning to end, and the way it ended up was fantastic. I was so tense through the last 30% of the book, I had to find out what was happening; I read nonstop until I finished! Very happy with this read. "

    " This isn't a bad little book. An okay mystery. I was attracted by the Nashville setting and I completed a few chapters but I just wasn't able to get into it. I skipped to the final pages (Yes, I give myself permission to do that) and I think I would have been surprised by the ending. "
