Dead To Her

The Short of It:
This story was a breath of fresh air. A little racy, a mystery to solve and all surrounded by the antics of the rich.
The Rest of It:
Marcie’s marriage to Jason Maddox has her living in a big house, attending big gala type events, mixing at the club, and finds herself constantly comparing herself to the rich around her. Will she ever fit in? You see, Marcie has a past. Some of which Jason is aware of but the one thing she has kept hidden for a very long time, comes to the surface and threatens the lifestyle that she has come to embrace.
To further complicate things, Jason’s partner, William, brings home a new wife. Keisha is young, vibrant and not what William’s friends are used to. His first wife, Eleanor was much-loved and Keisha cannot compare. William’s constant demands for Keisha to become something she isn’t pushes her towards Marcie, her only friend. The two have more in common than they know.
I’ve not read Pinborough before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. At first, it seemed very glitzy and glam for me. A bit too superficial but then the story picked up and I got into the characters and what was going on. There’s even a little bit of black magic tossed in to spice things up.
I found the story to be very entertaining and not as predictable as I expected it to be. I’d read this author again.
