Trish Bailey has her hands full working a demanding job and caring for her mother, who was chronically injured in a car accident that took both their husbands. Trish teaches art at a school for the underprivileged, and her mother runs a charitable foundation, with the help of their accountant Matt Parker. Trish is shocked when her mother dies suddenly.
Detective Colin Flynn tries to be sensitive to Trish's feelings, but he believes the death to be of natural causes. When the tox screening comes back positive, he knows that he must dig deeper to find answers.
I like that Trish tries not to dwell on the new information, but when she is attacked in the parking lot of the school, she can't ignore the fact that she is in danger. Colin rushes to her aid, and suggests that they take a deeper look at everything, and that Matt's strange behavior is worth a second glance.
I like that Trish holds to her faith, and is open about her faith with Colin. I like that she has someone that she can trust and depend on in Colin, and that they find that they enjoy spending time together. I really liked how they got to know each other.
I think that they title is very fitting for this book, and it definitely makes more sense as the story progresses. I really admired Trish and her determination in the midst of a tough situation. She doesn't care much for money, but wants to help others. This was a thrilling read from beginning to end, with many twists and turns along the way. Fantastic, and hard to put down.
