This book should have been titled, "OOPS, SHE DID IT AGAIN." Marcella Atkinson has an affair that destroys her marriage. On the same day that their affair breaks up, her lover's wife is murdered and her lover, Cecil, dies in a car accident a short while later. As the book progresses, Marcella begins an affair with her dead lover's son.
This is a very tacky romance couched in a slim mystery. You should skip this book; I wish I had.
