My thoughts…

I love Samantha Downing’s books because they just escalate. They really do…they just keep going and shocking and going and by the end you’re left with a finished book and your mouth hanging open in amazement. Those are the best kind of books! If you’re ever worried about the psychological stability of your family…worry no more! You couldn’t make this story up…or could you! This book has a healthy dose of humour and sadness – there are hilarious bits and poignant bits..and then there’s the ‘other’ bits…

About the book…

Beth, Portia, and Eddie Morgan haven’t all been together in years. And for very good reasons—we’ll get to those later. But when their wealthy grandfather dies and leaves a cryptic final message in his wake, the siblings and their respective partners must come together for a cross-country road trip to fulfill his final wish and—more importantly—secure their inheritance.

But time with your family can be tough. It is for everyone.

It’s even harder when you’re all keeping secrets and trying to forget a memory—a missing person, an act of revenge, the man in the black truck who won’t stop following your car—and especially when at least one of you is a killer and there’s a body in the trunk. Just to name a few reasons.

But money is a powerful motivator. It is for everyone.
