"Terrific Cassidy McCabe mystery"
Nobody can be happier than psychotherapist Cassidy McCabe
that her client Claire Linden is getting married again. In
the three years that Claire has been going to Cassidy, she
divorced her abusive husband, learned how to stand on her
own two feet and how to trust another man. Ignoring the
warning bells that go off in her head indicating Max is too
good to be true, Cassidy and her reporter husband Zach
Moran agree to attend the wedding.
When the couple is about to say their vows, a shot rings
out and Max keels over. He is the dead victim of a
professional hit. An upset Claire pleads with Cassidy and
Zach to find out who killed her groom. The pair agree
having experience in solving high profile homicides in the
past. During the course of their investigations they learn
that Max had many enemies who would want him dead. Almost
as soon as they start asking questions, Cassidy acquires a
stalker who warns her off the investigations if she wants
to see tomorrow.
This is the seventh Cassidy McCabe mystery and it is
absolutely terrific. The characters have grown and changed
in ways that make their marriage a joyous celebration of
life and them more of a team on this investigation than
before. Zach realizes he can't control Cassidy and she
knows that there are times it is better to give in than
argue. The victim in this novel wasn't a bad man, just a
flawed one who managed to get the wrong person angry. Alex
Matthews is a talented author who knows how to keep her
series fresh and challenging.
