Merry Jones’s avid readers raved about The Deadly Neighbors, her third fast-paced thriller featuring art therapist Zoe Hayes. Now the inimitable Zoe is back to save her marriage—and her life.
In the final days before Zoe’s wedding to Detective Nick Stiles, a jogger turns up murdered on Zoe’s back patio. Nick’s brothers have come for the wedding and are staying at her home, and Zoe, now the mother of two—six-year-old Molly and baby Luke—finds evidence that at least one of her future in-laws is not who he pretends to be.
When her babysitter has a breakdown, her wedding planner is attacked, and a psychotic former patient decides to come after Zoe and her family, Zoe is caught in an intricate web of intrigue and spiraling danger that threatens to destroy a lot more than just her wedding.
