The Fiancee By:/Kate White/ Book Review

They had everything they needed for a perfect family vacation: close-knit relatives, a bucolic setting… and a murderer in their midst? Summer’s looking forward to a break from hustling for acting work in Manhattan when she, her husband Gabe, and Gabe’s nine-year-old son arrive at the annual family get-together at her in-law’s sprawling estate. On the agenda are leisurely gourmet meals, tennis matches, and plenty of relaxation by the pool. But this year Gabe’s brother Nick has invited his new flame Hannah, whom Summer immediately recognizes from a few years before. Oddly, her brother-in-law’s girlfriend claims not to know her. Yet she charms the other family members, and after Nick announces that he’s proposed to Hannah, Summer doesn’t have much choice but to grin and bear it. Then the reunion is rocked by tragedy when a family member is found dead. Through the doctors attribute the loss to natural causes, a grieving Summer fears that the too-good-to-be-true Hannah is involved, even as Gabe dismisses her suspicions. How far will Summer go to expose the truth? As she investigates just what Nick’s fiancee might have done to keep her perfect image intact, she begins to fear that the first death might only be the beginning…

My Review:

The storyline and plot were promising to me, Summer goes to her in-laws there she meets Hannah and right away she recognizes her from an acting gig they had done before but Hannah claims she had never done that acting gig or has ever met Summer. Then someone is found dead but Summer knows it’s not from natural causes while everyone around is mourning this horrible sudden death Summer is suspicious of the one person who could of done it Hannah I mean who else could it be! After that I felt the story was rushed then we find out who the killer was they quickly explain why and how then the book ends also I didn’t enjoy the reason for the murder as to why they had to die to me I thought it was a ridiculous reason I wanted more something crazy or Wow but unfortunately I didn’t get that. I’m giving this book a 2.5 out of 5 stars. I also wanted to mention that the author did have a great writing style I will give this author another try in the future with other books!
