Book Description:

We should never have kept our father’s secret.

Before, my sisters and I were close. Now, a year after our father’s funeral, we barely speak to each other. Molly won’t accept the truth. Rachel can’t forgive him. And I spend all my time digging through his life, trying to understand.

Then we hear the news. A woman has been found by the docks, her wedding ring stolen. The reporter says it appears the local serial killer has returned…

But I know that can’t be right, because I know who the killer was.

Henry Martin. Our father.

Someone is sending us a message. Someone knows we lied.

Now my sisters and I must work together to find out who is targeting us. How do they know what we’ve hidden? What do they want? And what other secrets lie buried in the past, putting us all in danger?

My review

I always love when I start a book with a new to me author and fly through it.  And when I was offered a chance to be a part of the tour I jumped when I saw that cover.  I love that the story was fast paced with a twist you won’t see coming.

I wondered if the father was the killer, then how can there be more deaths.  I’ve read a few books where parents are a killer and the story is about the children, but the new murders after the father’s death was a new one to me.  Was it one of the daughters?  Someone from their past? Someone seeking revenge?  I am one to usually put the pieces together, but this one had me a little puzzled and that ending!  Gah.  

The book was a little repetitive, but all in all a mystery that keeps you guessing and up all night until you figure it out.  I can’t wait to read her next book.  If you like suspenseful family drama, I’d definitely pick this one up.
