Amaryllis, Mississippi is a scrappy little town of strong backbone and southern hospitality. A brick-paved Main Street, a park, and a legendary ghost in the local cemetery are all part of its heritage. Everybody knows everybody in Amaryllis, and gossip wafts on the breeze. Its people are friendly, its families tight. On the surface Amaryllis seems much like the flower for which it’s named-bright and fragrant. But the Amaryllis flower is poison.
In the past three years five unsolved murders have occurred within the town. All the victims were women, and all were killed in similar fashion in their own homes. And just two nights ago-a sixth murder.
Clearly a killer lives among the good citizens of Amaryllis. And now three terrified women are sure they know who he is – someone they love. None is aware of the others’ suspicions. And each must make the heartrending choice to bring the killer down. But each woman suspects a different man.
What a great book!
Seriously! I’ve never read a book with this kind of story line, and I loved it!
These three ladies, who are strangers, come together to solve a murder. Between the three of them, they had more information than the police that were investigating the crime.
This is a serious page turner.
I found myself wondering if I would go to the police if I believed my husband, or brother committed murder. I can’t even imagine it.
Something that I really liked about this book is that the characters are so real. They could be each one of our neighbors.
I happen to be one of those for people that try to figure the story out throughout the whole book, beginning at page one. This one had me stumped for a while, but I did figure it out.
I hope you will latch on to this one, because it is a good one.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
