Come Hell or High Water
Dexter meets Mrs. and Mrs. Smith. They're the perfect neighbors, the perfect parents, the perfect couple. If it weren't for that one thing...
"I've been studying her for weeks. I know how she takes her coffee, the color she prefers on her nails, the way her mouth moves when she sleeps. I don't know what she looks like when she's happy. But I will."
When Cheryl Steinbeck-Edwards makes the decision to get in a car with a potential contractor, meticulous hitman Jude Riley and his lovely wife Kate, it appears to be the perfect partnership. Turns out, nothing is perfect, and getting in that car was a poor choice, to say the least.
When Kate decides not to kill the woman, as she and her husband agreed, a series of events, some might even call it karma, conspire to turn their worst fears into reality.

I so enjoy this author!
I read all kinds of books, but for pure escapism and enjoyment, Britney King is a master. Or mistress. I sometimes try to guess where the story will take me, but I haven’t been successful yet. D E L I C I O U S.
