About the book:

It’s the week before her wedding, and Natalie Marsh
doesn’t have a moment to spare. But when a potential
donor requests a meeting regarding Natalie’s mental
health clinic, the soon-to-be-bride makes time for the
conversation—especially since that donor is tied to a
tragedy in the life of Natalie’s fiancé, Gideon: eight years
ago, Gideon’s roommate Travis died of a drug overdose.

Now Travis’s mother wants to honor his memory by
helping others avoid the same fate. It is a noble request
that soon turns into a nightmare.
As wedding celebrations ensue, old friends renew
acquaintances. But what begins as a party of wedding
guests becomes a cast of suspects when the discovery of
a bloodstained knife puts them all under the spotlight.
Things are taking a deadly turn, leading Natalie and
Gideon to a horrifying realization: all those years ago,
Travis didn’t overdose—he was murdered. And his killer
is willing to take deadly action to silence anyone who
suspects the truth.

My review:

I’m giving this one 3.5 stars. I was told before reading this that it could be read as a stand-alone, but while reading I really felt like I was missing out on some important information. This is a new author for me. This did make me want to read the other books in this series. Once I got past the feeling of missing out, I did enjoy the book. I was surprised as the mystery unfolded.

My rating:  4-Stars-300x57
