Corey was Holly’s brother and Savitri’s boyfriend.  When he dies, neither of them know if they can move on without him.  While Savitri is determined to find her boyfriend’s murderer, Holly is on the verge of madness.  They say they will get through it together, but how can they if secrets are kept from each other?  Will they find Corey’s killer, or die trying?

Opinion: 

The first chapter of this book got my attention immediately, though as the story went on the excitement began to fade.  I kept on waiting for more to happen, but nothing did until the last few chapters.


I do appreciate that Corey’s death wasn’t quickly dismissed as sometimes deaths are in books.  I saw the main characters, Savitri and Holly, struggling throughout the entire book to forget Corey’s death, and it seemed real.  I also like the fact that it switched from Holly’s point of view to Savitri’s often, so I saw both of their ways of thinking.  Overall, the book wasn’t bad, just a bit slow in parts.
