When Steven Armstrong tells his children he has fallen in love, he expects them to be happy that his life as a lonely, sixty-five year old widower is over. Instead their father's intended thirty-three year old personal trainer Charlene Hendricks is exactly the kind of woman they fear. Through marriage she becomes not only the stepmother to his three grown children, but their rival for their father's world class fortune. Suddenly an attack is made on her life. All the children are suspect, but which one has the best motive? Then a second attack backfires and mistakenly kills her husband, making the stepmother a wealthy heiress. Now, it is the children who accuse her of murdering their father. Only by finding the real killer can she prove her innocence.

I was a bit disappointed with the book. The story line seemed predictable. Will probably not read more from this author. There were also a number of missing or misspelled words that detract from the overall presentation.

This would be a fabulous novel to add to your list of reading. I thoroughly enjoyed this book with a little bit of romance, suspense & detective work. I will be reading more of her books!!
