Series: Cape Refuge
(From the publisher):
As the mayoral race heats up on the island of Cape Refuge, Jonathan realizes that he is not the frontrunner. Sam Sullivan seems to have the position locked. But when Sullivan's wife turns up murdered, things begin to shift.
Lisa is a successful real estate agent on the island, but when scuba divers pull her body out of the water in the exact location where her husband was fishing that day, her best friend and business partner has some theories about what might have happened. Rani Baxter, the African American woman who's known Lisa since college, claims that Lisa's husband, Sam -- the mayoral hopeful -- had been getting love letters from a woman for the past few weeks. Lisa confided that she was concerned he was having an affair, even though he swore to her that the letters were a hoax.
As Police Chief Cade investigates the murder, he uncovers possible scenarios. Did Sullivan fear Lisa's reprisals? Did he kill her to shut her up? Was Lisa, herself, involved in something that would have made Sam look bad and cost him the election? Did he kill her to get her out of the way? Or did her death have anything to do with her decade-long quest to get pregnant? Do the fertility clinics she'd been frequenting -- the same ones Morgan has been visiting -- hold any clues to her death? Was this the act of a jealous lover? A dangerous client? Or is this all about the election?
