A Rose Mathieu has written a fantastic page turner that had me gripped from start to finish. Elizabeth Campbell is an attorney who does pro bono work and comes into contact with Detective Grace Donovan when she reopens a suspect murder conviction. Although initially on opposite sides they begin to spend more time together investigating and a subtle attraction ensues. Murdered priests, dodgy politicians and a clever mystery are the hallmarks of this novel. I loved the banter between Elizabeth and Grace. They seemed to rub each other the wrong way but both realise there is more going on between them. The various threads running through the story were so well written and I certainly didn’t guess the outcome. I loved it and highly recommend this book.
I was given this ARC by Netgalley and Bold Strokes Books in return for an honest review.
