This exciting thriller from Cole (Couples Wanted) is full of twists and turns that will keep readers engaged. The New Jersey police tell Deven that her younger sister Kennedy was found dead from an overdose in her apartment. They ask her to come to the morgue to identify Kennedy’s body while fingerprints are being processed. But one look and Deven insists it isn’t her. She is not sure what is going on but begins looking for answers—all she gets is more questions. Kennedy’s friend Benji seems to know more than he is saying. There is Deuce, a man with a dark side, who is connected to Kennedy somehow. He warns Deven to stop looking into the matter and insinuates that her safety may be at risk if she doesn’t. Deven’s friend Paul is her emotional support during this trying time, but their friendship gets complicated by their mutual attraction and Paul’s connection to Deven’s family. Add in Deven’s mother having dementia and she has no one to turn to and must figure out on her own how all these people are connected to her sister and where Kennedy might be.
VERDICT Cole’s characters are well developed and compelling. Fans of B. A. Paris and Liv Constantine will enjoy this book.
