Synopsis from Goodreads:

Getting pregnant as a teenager and being coerced into giving her baby up for adoption left a festering scar on Jaymee Ballard’s life. Trapped by poverty and without many allies, Jaymee nearly gives up hope of getting her daughter back after her best friend is murdered. Now, four years later, a wealthy woman with legal connections hires her as a housekeeper, and Jaymee gathers the courage to seek her help. But Jaymee’s last chance ends up in a puddle of blood in one of the historic antebellum mansions in Roselea, Mississippi.

I just murdered your wife...again.

An unsigned letter consisting of six horrifying words turns Nick Samuels stagnant life upside down. Stuck in emotional purgatory since his wife’s unsolved murder four years ago, Nick is about to self-destruct. The arrival of the letter claiming credit for his wife’s murder and boasting of a new kill sends Nick to Roselea, where he and Jaymee’s worlds collide.

Jaymee and Nick realize exposing the truth about her daughter’s adoption is the only way to solve the murders. Up against years of deception, they rush to identify the killer before the evidence–and Jaymee’s daughter–are lost.

But the truth doesn’t always set the guilt-ridden free. Sometimes, it destroys them.

My Review:

This novel draws you all the way in right from the get-go. I couldn’t put it down, even for a second.

Green is a master storyteller. She balances just the right mix of mystery, suspense, love, and reality in her stories to make it entertaining for everyone. She also develops a very solid storyline that leaves you reeling and wanting more at every twist and turn. Although you can’t always guess where she’s going with the story, once you get there the journey makes perfect sense. Not only that, but Green’s vivid descriptions and masterful manipulation of scenarios makes for a very fulfilling read.

I love the characters in this novel. They’re so real. They are extremely complex characters and you feel for them on multiple levels. Green develops all of her characters very subtly in order to create extremely realistic characters. You find out things about them that you would about real people that you know and meet every day. You don’t know their entire life history and psych profile, but rather the things that come up in real life.

Oh, and as for the ending… HOLY F&$@ING S#%T. I did not see that coming.
