Suspense Finalist for the 2017 Indie Excellence Awards!
Libby Carter is pretty sure she didn’t kill her husband… When Libby wakes up to find her husband Ryan murdered in bed next to her with no memory of how it happened, she can only assume the worst. Daughter of the infamous I-75 Strangler, Libby is afraid that becoming a serial killer is in her DNA. Is she truly capable of killing the man she loves? The evidence against her keeps stacking up, and it’s enough for an arrest… It’s no secret that Libby is the number one suspect, and when she makes bail, she knows she has no choice but to turn to the only man who can help clear her name. Her father. After visiting him in prison, she decides to take the investigation into her own hands. Libby finds an unsettling lead on Ryan’s murderer and learns her husband might not have been as innocent as she thought. But every clue she uncovers leads to another dead end… Libby must risk her life to discover the truth about her husband and his murder, but things become even more dangerous when she realizes someone is watching her every move.
~ My Review ~
In the first few pages, Libby wakes up to find her husband dead and she has no recollection of this living nightmare. What a way to start a series, Christina! This was told from Libby's point of view so we automatically get sucked into her world and this murder mystery that surrounds her. This was a page turner and moved along at a frantic pace, and even though it slowed down to let you catch your breath, I was still guessing who killed Ryan and what in the world Libby was going to do next. Well done and I can see why it's a suspense finalist for the 2017 Indie Excellence Award.
It's not everyday you get to read about a family that has two people with blood on their hands. Like Father, Like Daughter ? maybe we'll see exactly how alike these two are in the next installment.
