This book was okay. It has interesting plot but to me didn't flow as well. Could have been me. Anna has someone breaking into her house leaving her creepy postcards but how are they getting in? Andy why did it start after she started asking questions. Give it a shot and see what you think. I am glad I read it. Im glad I read almost any book. Thank you to Penny Kline and her publishing company for letting me review this copy for them.
Anna McColl became a psychologist because she wanted to help. But not everyone wants help .. and those that do generally tell a partial truth, not the whole truth. One of her clients wants Anna's help in clearing her brother's name. He was accused of strangling to death Karen Plant, a social worker. The brother confessed and then hung himself when he was jailed. The sister says there is no way he would have killed Karen. Anna, herself, is working through a break -up with her boyfriend. They are friends with another couple who , Anna discovers, knew Karen Plant personally. Was her husband having an affair with the woman? Anna had to terminate a client, Rob, who was becoming unruly and maybe even dangerous. Someone is breaking into Anna's home and sometimes leaving something or moving things around. Whoever it is, they are also leaving postcards .... creepy postcards. But who has a key to her home? Or maybe picking the locks, even though there are no signs of a break in. Anna believes that these things are happening because she's asking questions about the murdered social worker. And the killer may be closer than she thinks. This is a slow paced mystery loaded with dysfunctional characters. Most of them seem to be hiding things for one reason or another. It's really hard to like any of them ... even Anna. The story line is good, just slow and a bit unexciting. Many thanks to the author / Endeavor Press / NetGalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
