She thought she’d found the one… But then she found him dead.
The last time Caz saw Harry, he was smiling at her over a candlelit table. She spent so many years alone after having her heart broken, and she thought she might have finally met the right person. She sipped her wine, and let herself hope for a second perfect date.
But this morning, out on a bright sunny walk, her rescue dog starts barking. She follows to see what he’s found. That’s when she sees Harry’s body. His handsome face is cold and still. She backs away, trembling.
It should be the worst thing that has ever happened to her. But it’s happened to her before.
The man she dated before Harry died too. For a while, the police blamed her. So she can’t tell them she knew Harry, she can’t let them dig into her past. She’d be their number one suspect.
But then strange things start to happen. The man who betrayed her all those years ago comes back into her life. Her best friend disappears. She needs to understand what’s happening.
Is someone doing this on purpose? And is it someone who hates her… or who loves her too much?
