I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Kathy Carpenter, a former nun turned psychologist, is known for her celebrity clientele. Unfortunately, Kathy reconnects with a young woman, Chanelle Trout, whom she mentored until she began college. Their reconnection has brought forth dark secrets with political connections that could destroy many lives.
This was a fantastic journey as we travel from past to present, to see where Kathy was coming from, and where she is now. This was quite the page turner as we try to uncover the truth. I thought it was that Kathy has a supportive family. Even after Tina was run off the road, she still assisted her sister. Kathy also had great strength, she trusted God in all ways. This was great book throughout and you’re certainly left guessing until the final piece of the puzzle! A great cozy mystery for a rainy, indoor summer day.
