Goodreads:   The past two years had been grueling on Maureen; her infant child's sudden death caused incredible strain on her marriage and her mind. A year later, her husband Patrick was missing, presumably dead, when his body was never recovered from a plane crash over the South African Atlantic Ocean. Now a widow, Maureen will have to wait eight years to find out why Patrick left his entire wealth to an undisclosed person and her flat broke in a last minute change to his will a week before his death. With her lawyer, Sally Burton, by her side, Maureen will dig for answers during a faceoff with the formidable Grace Monroe in a court battle that will surely shock them all. 


Kritters Thoughts:  Maureen had an interesting childhood with a mother who switched out romantic partners as often as she was buying a new pair of shoes.  She didn't guide and teach her daughter as mothers are supposed to, and because of that Maureen wasn't quite prepared for adulthood.

There was a twist at the end that were satisfying, but there were definitely a few twists that we weird or just out of left field.  I wanted to love the book more because the synopsis was fantastic with mystery intrigue and a family falling apart, but there were outside characters' stories that took a more prominent place than maybe they should have and an awkward ending that left me a little lost and confused.

Rating: not such a good read


Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from the author.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
