As women in a secret investment club go missing, Claire and Max race the clock to locate a killer. Narrator Amanda Leigh Cobb matches Jayne Ann Krentz’s no-nonsense style in this tightly-plotted mystery with a second-chance romance.
Narrator Amanda Leigh Cobb chronicles Charlotte Sawyer’s glorious escape from her staid comfort zone in Krentz’s romantic suspense novel. Charlotte convinces private investigator Max Cutler to collaborate as she seeks answers about her missing sister Jocelyn’s murky investment club.
