Carine Winters has moved on since Tyler North walked out on her a week before their wedding, and she'd be fine if she never saw him again. But then she discovers the dead body of her coworker—and the prime suspect turns out to be Manny Carrera, one of Tyler's closest friends.

Tyler wants to help his friend, despite Manny's unfathomable resistance. All Manny asks is for Tyler to keep Carine from digging around in something that is far more than it seems—which is easier asked than done.

Demonstrating a flair for excitement and intrigue, Neggers once again delivers an entertaining read. Her characters are so real, readers will find themselves talking back to them—fluctuating between scolding and cheering. (Aug., 384 pp., $6.99)
