False Impressions

Author: Sandra Nikolai
Genre: Mystery, Suspense

5 Stars

Megan Scott is a ghostwriter who lives in Montreal with her husband, Tom.  Tom is a salesman who travels quite often for his job, and Megan is a ghostwriter. 

Megan is currently ghostwriting for Michael Elliott, a reporter she once knew in school.   While deep in this assignment, Tom tells her he has to go on another business trip, and tells her it is for employees only, no spouses allowed.  Disappointed, because she knew the place he was going and would have liked to go along, she accepts his explanations.

Then the police arrive at Megan's home one day and tell her that her husband is dead.  And that a female was found dead along with him.  And that they were murdered.  Aside from being devastated - partly because she thought they had a happy marriage; partly because they were attempting to conceive; and partly because the woman with him was someone she knew - she finds out that there is evidence which implicates both her and Michael.  Suddenly, her life is thrown into turmoil.

Now, because Megan knew Michael previously, and they have been spending a lot of time together, the police suspect them of plotting the murder.  To save themselves from being wrongly convicted, Megan and Michael must find the real killer or killers.  Along the way, Megan finds out things about her husband that she wishes she hadn't, and her burgeoning feelings for Michael, which she tries to put aside in her quest for the truth.

I was pleasantly surprised by this novel.  While I expected the mystery to be decent, I certainly did not expect it to be something I could not put down.  It definitely held my interest.

I highly recommend this suspenseful mystery, and hope others will enjoy it as much as I did.
