I thought I’d found the one… But then I found him dead.

The last time I saw Harry, he was smiling at me over a candlelit table. It felt like I’d known him forever. I sipped my wine, and let myself hope for a second perfect date.

But this morning, out on a bright sunny walk, my rescue dog starts barking. I follow to see what he’s found. That’s when I see Harry’s body. His handsome face is cold and still. I back away, trembling.

It should be the worst thing that has ever happened to me. But it’s happened to me before.

The last two men I dated are dead.

I can’t tell the police I knew them both. I’d be their number one suspect.

But I need answers. Am I going mad, or is this my fault? And if I don’t find out who is doing this, will I be next?


This book was the perfect way to introduce me to this author. Crouch writes a book that is full of suspense and mystery. It is fast paced, with short chapters and it will keep you guessing until the very end. While it did start out a little slow for me, it quickly picked up and I couldn’t stop reading. There are a lot of twists and turns that you’ll never see coming!

All of the characters in this book were very distinct and each one had a part to play. It’s hard to know who to trust because it seems anyone can have a motive to kill. The plot is well thought out and the ending is cleaned up nicely, not leaving any questions about what happened. This is the type of ending I prefer!

Any thriller lover will enjoy this book, therefore I highly recommend it!
