In the midst of gorgeous St. Bart’s, a few days before Christmas, a Senator’s daughter is found stabbed and strangled on the beach—the day after her engagement party. While the rich and famous are pouring in to celebrate the holidays, the local police are desperate to keep it quiet and not cause an uproar. But the Senator’s family wants justice for their daughter, and they hire Cindy and Mattheus to solve the crime.
As Cindy and Mattheus investigate, they meet the elite crowd surrounding the Senator’s family, an exclusive world of unimaginable wealth, of luxurious parties on yachts and private villas. They learn of all the people who may have wanted the young woman dead, all the jealousies and rivalries, the secret ex-es and affairs. They meet her devastated fiancé, her twin sister and her distraught Mom—all intent on the killer’s being found. They meet the corrupt police force, who wants them stopped, and a rich Russian mogul who controls half the island—and has his own agenda to bring down the senator.
As they delve deeper, they learn the many secrets of this exclusive family and the young woman, and discover that all was not as perfect as it appeared to be. As they get close to the answers, Cindy faces personal danger, while at the same time her relationship with Mattheus grows deeper—and faces a crisis of its own.
And as the two of them are about to leave the island, a sudden twist in events changes everything. Ultimately, they come to learn that on the pristine, perfect St. Bart's, everything is not always as it seems to be.

Death by Marriage
I love the books written by this author. I am getting more frustrated each time I buy a new one because of the many errors in punctuation, and in the 3rd book I have found writing errors. An if instead if an of, or missing words. I'm not a grammar natzi in anyway, though when I sit down to relax and read, I want to enjoy the book and not constantly looking back to see if I misread a line. Very frustrated now to have read the reviews of other readers all saying the same thing. And the prices go up with each book I buy. Probably won't buy another one.
Another good book
Loved this book as I have all the others!! I'm still unhappy with the typos through out but most of the time it's simple that u can understand the point anyways!!! The mystery is always good and keeps me coming back for more!! I'm about to download the next book!!
Death By Desire
Good story but frustrating to read with all the errors in typing. Probably only the case with the digital book.
