A new author for me and the first book in a new series. Allie Cobb has been living and working as a literary agent in New York City. Her Father, a noted Literary agent has passed away from normal causes. Allie with her rescue cat, Ursula returns home for his funeral. Her Father's outstanding author is found dead in a nearby river. His daughter is Allie best friend, Sloane is the main suspect in her Father's MURDER. Allie decided to clear her friend name. The Police Chief ex-wife is one of Allie's sisters. Working to help the understaffed police force, Allie is involved with the probe of the case. The ending is satisfactory and I am looking forward to the next book. I recommend this book. Disclosure: Many to NetGalley and Lyrical Underground for a review copy. The opinions expressed are my own.
