Diana Soares  was murdered, twenty five years ago.   The murder was never solved.   Right away the author has the reader hooked.  An unsolved 25 year old murder.   Diana was only a mere 21 years of age when she was brutally murdered.  Her cousin Kris Langley doesn't go a day without thinking about Diana.  At the time her body was found in some woods, the police had several suspects but no one was ever prosecuted. Kris becomes investigator, meaning well but it all becomes a mess when things go in a different direction.  Is Kris getting herself into something that could be a danger to herself?  The author gives the reader a steady pace, some twists and turns on every page especially at the end.  The first half of the book was rather slow but then the speed began to increase.  The suspense began to increase and you don't want to let go. Kris was a little hard to want to know.  She was unpredictable and she just didn't have what I wanted to get to know.  The other characters were easy to get to know especially Kris' family.   Then there was the romance between Kris and Eric which led to a subplot.
 Kris is not an investigator but an editorial assistant.  She writes obits.  Wow! Now doesn't that fit in with the plot of her cousin's murder? The author gives you some little extras in the e-book.  Essays on writing the book, interview with her main character and some discussion questions.  Will Kris find her cousin's killer after twenty five years?   Who would have done this and why?  What could possibly left as evidence to investigate after such a long time?  The questions keep you wondering and trying to figure it out yourself.   Will you figure it out before Kris does?  

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and Authors Cross Promotion and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book  4 STARS.
