REVIEW
Setting:  Minnesota. Chief of police, Katherine Sullivan  has gone back home after retiring.  Now instead of a gun she waves a paint brush.  She's trying to establish herself as an artist.  All changes when Katherine needs her previous job skills to help find out what happened to the young woman that was found dead.   Katherine is now  trying to find a killer who is ruthless.  As she does this, dark hidden secrets come to the surface.  The author wrote of a strong woman who wasn't afraid to try something different and yet when called, she could put her previous skills back to work. This story is a web of mystery t hat will find you turning the pages and trying to figure the mystery out.  Who killed the young woman and why?  Did she come upon one of the dark hidden secrets.   The author gives you a variety of characters, The aunt's cuddler,  a football player who became addicted, Katherine's daughter and family and so many more.  What a mix?  The author doesn't allow you time to be bored. New things are forever happening. The ending will amaze you.

 I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Emily Barnes and Night Owl Reviews in exchange for my unbiased view. No other compensation took place.
