On the day Nora discovered that her husband, Hugh, had gotten another woman pregnant, she made a vow: I will come back to life no matter how long it takes…
It’s taken Nora three years. With the help of her best friend, she fled New York City for a small resort town, snagged a job as the advice columnist for the local paper, and is cautiously letting a new man into her life. But when Hugh and his perfect new family move into a house nearby, Nora backslides. Coping with jealousy, humiliation, and resentment again is as hard as she feared. It’s harder still when Hugh and his wife are shot to death in their home.
If only Nora could account for the night of the murders. Unfortunately, her memories have gone as dark as her fantasies of revenge. But Nora’s not the only one with a reason to kill—and as prime suspect in the crime, she’d better be able to prove it.
So, this is a mystery with an unexpected cover and a blurb that sort of sounds like a cozy mystery. I only stopped for another look because of the little A novel of Suspense on there as well, otherwise I wouldn’t have stopped. The combination of all these elements kind of won me over. And then there’s Nora, who I like because she pulled herself out of the depths of a horrible divorce before it all comes crashing down.
