Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Mystery author, Mara Byrne is woman who leads an idyllic life. She’s an accomplished author and she’s married to her soul mate. For nearly thirty years she lived the perfect life in sunny southern California, quite an improvement from her impoverished childhood in rural Arkansas growing up with six brothers.
Her world is turned upside down when the love of her life, Thomas, dies suddenly. She is plunged into an abysmal depression after her husband’s death. Mara thought things couldn’t get any worse, but then she finds a mysterious letter in her husband’s belongings. Did her husband of thirty years have an affair? Who was this man she thought she knew? Overcome with daunting questions, Mara is consumed with finding answers.
Perhaps by divine intervention, or maybe it was just a fluke, she crosses paths with a handsome private detective, Alex Strange, who happens to share the same name as the main character in her books. He offers to help her find the truth about the letter and her husband by locating the mysterious woman who wrote the letter.
As Mara and Alex delve into their investigation, Mara is thrust into danger by people who want the letter and the secrets it hold. These people are willing to do just about anything to get it as Mara learns the hard way.
In a world where no one is who they seem to be and secrets are around every corner, Mara has to decide if finding the truth is worth her life and her sanity or if she should let sleeping dogs lie? Follow Mara and Alex as they unravel the mystery of the letter.
