When Dr. John Taylor is found dead in a hotel room in his own hometown, police find enough incriminating evidence to suspect foul play. Detective Samantha Adams, whose posh Palo Alto beat usually covers small town crimes, is innocently thrown into a high profile murder case that is more intricately intertwined than she first expected. Behind this renowned plastic surgeon, family man, and community spokesman, was not only one great woman but three of them. A closeted polygamist, Dr. Taylor had lived three lives with three very different women in three separate cities. And when these three women all show up at his funeral, suspicions run high. Detective Adams soon finds herself delving through marital secrets and broken love in order to track down a murderer inside this deceitful web of lies.… (más)

I thought the ending would have a little more umph. But for the most part, was really interesting. ( )

This book falls fairly squarely in the Not Great But Didn't Hurt Anything category. I was engaged until the end and didn't really feel cheated but didn't feel that fulfilled either. A prominent physician dies. And then it is discovered that he had multiple woman who thought they were his one true love. And then it is discovered he was murdered. ( )

This is not usually the kind of book I would pick up for myself. It was for my Book Club, although I am sort of glad I did read it.

For the most part I found the plot of this book really interesting and found myself wanting to keep turning the page. Getting the point of view of each wife and the detective really helped put everything together while also not making the women out to be monsters. I was so nervous that this book was going to turn into a Lifetime movie type novel but was pleasantly surprised.

My only real complaint is that the ending turned into more of an Agatha Christie novel with how Sam put everything together. There also really isn't any conclusion. It also felt weird that the last chapter focused on a sub plot that really took away from figuring out who murdered John Taylor. I understood what the author was trying to say with this but it just left the ending very messy and annoying. ( )

A man is found murdered in his hotel room and the police quickly discover that he had 3 wives in 3 different cities. All are suspects. Samantha, a young female detective, is in charge of the investigation.

Although there is a murder and a police investigation, this story is told in alternating chapters with multiple POV and has a “chick-lit” feel to it. The book was light and fluffy, and the narrators of the audio book furthered that impression. The detective’s character was young and inept and stretched believability.

Although I enjoyed the author’s first book, Turn of Mind, this one was not my cup of tea.

Lots of twists and turns. You don't find out what really happened to John until the end. John has three wives who don't know about each other until he is murdered. Very well written and interesting. ( )
