Libby Carter is pretty sure she didn’t kill her husband…

When Libby wakes up to find her husband Ryan murdered in bed next to her with no memory of how it happened, she can only assume the worst. Daughter of the infamous I-75 Strangler, Libby is afraid that becoming a serial killer is in her DNA. Is she truly capable of killing the man she loves?

The evidence against her keeps stacking up, and it’s enough for an arrest…

It’s no secret that Libby is the number one suspect, and when she makes bail, she knows she has no choice but to turn to the only man who can help clear her name. Her father. After visiting him in prison, she decides to take the investigation into her own hands. Libby finds an unsettling lead on Ryan’s murderer and learns her husband might not have been as innocent as she thought.

But every clue she uncovers leads to another dead end…
Libby must risk her life to discover the truth about her husband and his murder, but things become even more dangerous when she realizes someone is watching her every move.

Libby woke to find her husband had been killed while she slept. Then things went from bad to worse when she was arrested for his murder.

This book begs the question, how do you prove your innocence when you were the only one with your husband and you can’t remember anything after going to sleep the night before. Why hadn’t Libby heard the gunshots?

Libby is a paralegal and a feisty character. The discovery of her husband’s secret life doesn’t help and the police have it fixed in their heads she’s guilty. Could this be because her father is a serial killer and has been sentenced to jail for life?

The mystery is not easy to solve either for Libby or the reader. I did feel at times Libby was being a bit stupid. She does something she regrets and her lawyer tells her not to do it again, then she goes right out and does virtually the same thing. First time could have been a natural reaction, second time was a bit silly.

This book is a good murder mystery and no matter how you try, it’s difficult to solve until the end, which is good as it keeps the suspense going.
