I got this book free from Amazon for my Kindle when it was available for free.
Quincy and Lavender Wallace have the perfect marriage, or do they?!
High school sweethearts married and have a kid, Quincy is a successful Pastor and Lavender is the first lady of the church. Their son Jalen is about to graduate high school and seems doing very well for a kid his age.
Then Lavender witnesses an act no woman should see her husband engaged it that has her enraged. She then decides to have her revenge. So she hires a specialist to do the work for her.
Plotting to get rid of her husband's lovers and framing him for the deeds.
But she didn't expect Tai to enter her life and complicate things, specially that he is the detective that is investigating the murders.
I don't want to give a lot of the story away, because it has many twists and turns.
What I loved about this book is the idea of the six degrees of separation that I believe is quite true and that the world is truly small. By having the past always catching up on you weather good or bad.
I liked the idea that I get to read the story from all the characters points of view, while not having the story going back and forth, it was flowing very nicely. I got to know what Quincy, Lavender, Jalen, Tai and The Magician were thinking and why each was doing what they were doing, with enough backstory for each to understand that.
It was a fast ride that I didn't want to stop till it was finished!
I can't say I was expecting the end, it was a shock to me but maybe it was for the best. Tragic things happen in real life too.
This was a first for me by this author and I will be sure to check out what other books she has :)
