A man is found murdered in his hotel room and the police quickly discover that he had 3 wives in 3 different cities. All are suspects. Samantha, a young female detective, is in charge of the investigation.

Although there is a murder and a police investigation, this story is told in alternating chapters with multiple POV and has a “chick-lit” feel to it. The book was light and fluffy, and the narrators of the audio book furthered that impression. The detective’s character was young and inept and stretched believability.

Although I enjoyed the author’s first book, Turn of Mind, this one was not my cup of tea.

Lots of twists and turns. You don't find out what really happened to John until the end. John has three wives who don't know about each other until he is murdered. Very well written and interesting. ( )

This book started out strong and ended weakly. The end was ridiculous. ( )

I am nothing if not irresolute. Excuse the double negative. What I mean to say is that there is little I won't waver over.

When Dr. John Taylor is found dead in a hotel room in his own hometown, police find enough incriminating evidence to suspect foul play. Detective Samantha Adams, whose posh Palo Alto beat usually covers small town crimes, is innocently thrown into a high profile murder case that is more intricately intertwined than she first expected. Behind this renowned plastic surgeon, family man, and community spokesman, was not only one great woman but three of them. A closeted polygamist, Dr. Taylor had lived three lives with three very different women in three separate cities. And when these three women all show up at his funeral, suspicions run high. Detective Adams soon finds herself delving through marital secrets and broken love in order to track down a murderer inside this deceitful web of lies.… (more)
