I feel like I have encountered similar books before A woman’s husbandson is accused of a crime and she fights to protect him There are secrets involved In this case both the husband and the son are suspected of having murdered the son’s girlfriend The book was readable but not a standout There was too much of a women’s fiction vibe for me and I doubt that I would seek out this author in the future I received a free copy of this book from the publisher
