Publisher Description

"Her cheating husband was murdered and she's the prime suspect. Proving her innocence is one thing. Evading a killer who wants her dead is something else."


Montreal ghostwriter Megan Scott falls under police suspicion when her husband and a female companion are found murdered. In what a Québec detective calls a crime of passion, startling evidence surfaces to also implicate Michael Elliott, a young investigative reporter who'd rather rub elbows with scumbags than live the posh lifestyle he inherited.

Clutched out of her comfort zone, Megan is flung into Michael's dark world of criminal investigation. As they make a last-ditch attempt to prove their innocence, an elusive enemy closes in and threatens their lives. Who wants them out of the way and why?

Their only path to freedom is to catch the twisted killer before they become the next victims. But not knowing who to trust or where to turn can have consequences that are just as lethal…

False Impressions

A clever, enjoyable mystery with interesting characters.

False Impressions

I’ll admit that I had a hard time finishing this book. Besides having unlikable characters, their actions were not realistic. Even finding out her husband was unfaithful, how did she show NO grief for the end of her dreams/marriage? I was glad when the book was over.

So intriguing..

This book is very interesting. I kept trying to solve the murder myself. Although I was surprised at the ending. The love story between Megan and Michael is amazing. Another great read.
