Thank You Netgalley and the publisher for this book!

Olivia Sinclair receives a video showing her husband Richard cheating with a secretary named Sandy. Then Sandy was found brutally murdered and the police arrest Olivia as the room in which Sandy’s body was found was paid with Olivia’s card and there was an email sent through Olivia’s email, threatening Sandy. But Olivia denies that and is convinced that someone–is framing her for Sandy’s murder and enlists the help of private investigator, Brian.

I really enjoyed reading this book! This was a fast paced thriller with unexpected turns and twists that will leave your heart reeling!!!! I liked the plot, the thrill of the story and as a reader, wonder who is the main perpetrator who want to destroy Olivia and we have so many viable suspects–Richard, or David her son-in-law or entirely someone else? I think the author did a good job engaging the reader into the story. I also like the ending!

This is the first book of the Olivia Sinclair series so I am looking forward to read more from the series–worth five stars!
