Then she threw in a second plot, which authors do when neither of the plots is able to stand on it's own. Which was true of this book. In the second plot the cause of death was totally unbelievable. No farmer in his right mind would hop on a tractor, which had just been repaired while he was away, without thoroughly inspecting the repair work. In fact he would probably have a regular ritual he would follow prior to starting the tractor checking the obvious things that could cause a problem. He would check fluid levels, belts, tires, etc. So it is extremely doubtful that he would have hopped on a tractor and got himself killed.
Two plots were not enough for the author, so she threw in a third. She dredged up her ex who tried to kill her in the previous book and dragged him into this book and it became obvious that this plot would become a cliffhanger. For that matter, the other two plots were not really tied up in neat packages. The author left the wife of the murdered victim in the first plot,in a coma after the person who murdered her husband tried to murder her. In the plot involving the farmer killed by the tractor, the ending was very weak. Madie and her partner got a housekeeper to admit that she found a note, a critical piece of evidence which went missing, written by the farmer's wife in someone's waste basket a few weeks after the wife was convicted and sent to prison. Yet, even though they rehashed to death every possible scenario for every other suspect, they accepted the housekeeper's word even though she had no proof of where she found the note. Based on where the housekeeper said she found the note the ex-wife of the farmer was taken into custody, but that's where the author left it. This is definitely one of those continued next book novels. But I won't be following.

The multiple threads of this novel are skillfully handled, well paced, and draw on interesting parallels. Madeline and her business partner Mike have two puzzles to solve, both concerning bereaved wives. The first widow is in prison, convicted of the murder of her husband; while the second widow is seeking an explanation for her husband's apparent suicide. Naturally, all is not as it first seems. Throw into the mix Madeline's murderous ex husband - now out on parole - and the burgeoning love between the two sleuths, and you have a tale that is satisfying on a number of levels.
Please get writing the next one, Ms. Hamilton.
Highly recommended for those who enjoy unpicking a good conundrum or two, and like a bit of romance and action on the side.
