Do you believe Will took his own life?’

The question echoed off the white tiles in the hospital’s cold, cavernous morgue, and I studied my husband in peaceful repose. I leaned down and put my forehead against his. Silent tears ran down my cheeks. They felt hot, and he felt so cold. It was five days since his death, and my grief felt heavy, like a vast, dark mass pushing down on me.

When Maggie’s husband, Will, is shot dead in their London home, she thinks he is the victim of a burglary until the police tell her the shocking news it was Will who pulled the trigger.

Maggie is consumed with grief and questions. Will wasn’t suicidal. He had so much to live for.

After the funeral, Maggie travels to their holiday home on a small Croatian island to escape London. She finds a disturbing letter written by Will, containing clues to a dark secret.

As Maggie puts the pieces together, she discovers Will’s death is connected to someone from his past. Someone who will go to extreme lengths to keep Maggie silent.

Three can keep a secret... If two of them are dead.

Maggie thinks her marriage is rock solid until her husband is found dead and the police tell her it was self inflicted. Devastated Maggie goes to stay at their isolated house on a Croatian Island. You can only get there by boat and only the caretaker of the island is there since it is off season. Strange things start happening putting her life in jeopardy. She also starts receiving cryptic letters from her dead husband. Trying to unravel what her husband was attempting to tell her and still not believing her committed suicide Maggie finds herself neck deep in a mystery and people are dying all around her. 

This was a spooky thrill ride as things speed up once she is on the Island.  The descriptions of her house in Croatia not only make me want to go there but I want her house, well maybe minus some of the smart home options. 

Well written and fun this book is a great beach read.
