I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Melody Dickinson's life crashes around her when she discovers that her husband has been having an affair with a younger woman from the same law firm. Everything is complicated by the fact that this younger woman is found murdered.

I really liked the suspense of this novel. It was really interesting to see the shrinking of Melody's friendship circle as each new piece of information was revealed, and three new light on who possibly killed Serena and Jack. It was also nice to read it from Melody's perspective because it focussed on her emotions and her guilt and her support network. The very frequent references to religion was a bit much and it did feel like it was being shoved at the reader.

Sara Morsey was a brilliant narrator, sounding exactly as I expected Melody to sound. She had this fantastic southern drawl and it sounded really natural and perfect as Melody. I didn't like her as much with the male characters, possibly because I connected her to Melody so much.
