An Amazon Best Book of October 2021
On an October morning in rural Maine, a homicide investigator pulls into the hard-luck town of Copper Falls. The local junkyard is burning, and Lizzie Oullette is dead. Detective Ian Bird's inquiries lead him away from small-town Maine to a city townhouse several hours south. Adrienne Richards, social media influencer and wife of a disgraced billionaire, had been renting Lizzie's lake house as a country getaway. As Adrienne's connection to the case becomes clear, so too does her connection to Lizzie. Each woman is desperately lonely in her own way, and they navigate a relationship that cuts across class boundaries: transactional, complicated, and, finally, deadly.
