Expecting a bucolic retreat to gain perspective on the violent death of a colleague, Senior Sergeant Detective Susan and her teenage daughter witness a murder at the sheepdog trials.
Susan fights being embroiled in a murder investigation, especially one headed by her sexy ex-husband. Unraveling the events that lead to the murder runs along quickly and quite satisfyingly as the plot; however, the undercurrent is the sexy reconciliation of Susan with her husband, and the behavior of her two vile daughters.
Altogether a good read. There are some memorable very nasty characters, and then there is the mouse under the sink who has not been celibate, but that's another story.
Since posting this review I've learned there has been some revision by the author, which overcome some of my reservations.
Diana Hockley's novel has Detective Senior Sergeant Susan Prescott going to a small Australian town on stress leave. While there she becomes involved in two murder investigations and meets up with her ex-husband, also a policeman, who arrives to head the investigations.
The story is an interesting look at family dynamics, deep family secrets, and life in a small Australian town. I must say some of the Aussie slang threw me for a loop, but Hockley provides a glossary at the end of the book that helps explain many of the terms.
The author presents the story in present tense first person view and third person views that takes some getting used to, but it works.
It is a well written novel which maintains suspense and drama throughout. The romance parts were a little much for my taste, but women readers will love it. There are some hot hunks in this book.
I love the title, but you will have to read the book to find out the significance. I would definitely read more of Diana Hockley's work. There is also a preview of her next novel.
