Truth be told, I started this one at the very end of October!
I saw this one recommended by Gail over at Is This Mutton. It sounded like the kind of mystery I would enjoy!
Cole and his wife are preparing for their annual party when Cole takes a phone call and then rushes off. Watching from an upstairs window their son sees him get in his car and notices that he is acting strangely. Not long afterwards, the police arrive with the tragic news that Cole has been involved in a fatal car crash.
Reeling from the shock of her husband's death, Jennifer is shocked to be visited by someone who claims to be the mother of his second son and who allegedly owns the family home. In disbelief, Jennifer seeks help from the financial advisor who dealt with their accounts. Imagine her surprise when she confirms that this is true and Jennifer feels she has no alternative but to say 'yes' when the girlfriend suggests that she moves into the house and they live there together in order to give all the children a sense of stability.
An unthinkable situation eh? Naturally things do not run smoothly and the friction in the house is unbearable. So many secrets and lies are being hidden. I'm giving no spoilers, you will need to read it to find out what the truth is!
