Sofia Kennedy has spent the last twenty-four years keeping her past a dark secret. To the rest of the world, she’s a gifted graphic designer, marvelous cook, and doting Minneapolis mother.

But then her daughter is murdered.

Sofia soon wonders whether her life of lies has caught up with her. The police are asking dangerous questions and going after the wrong man. It’s up to Sofia to hunt down her daughter’s killer before her elaborate deception is exposed and she loses whatever semblance of a life she has left.

EXCERPT:
Despite Gretchen’s oddities, Sofia loved her clan of friends. Leaning over a platter of bruschetta, something caught Sofia’s eye. For a split second, she thought she saw a ripple in the neighbor’s curtain. On that side of the deck, the neighbor’s house was alarmingly close. Unlike their own home, the neighbor’s house was set back from the street. It was right next to the deck that stretched out from the house to the backyard fence at the end of their small lot.

It wasn’t the first time Sofia suspected the neighbor of spying. Once she thought she saw a round white face watching her as she gardened. Another time, while she sat on the deck reading a book she got the feeling she was being watched. When she turned to look, a curtain had fallen closed. The worst was one night when Kate had a sleepover at a friend’s house. Sofia and Jason took their drinks out on the deck to enjoy the summer night. The drink had led to more. At one point, Jason had lifted her dress and had her up against the railing making love to her. She leaned her head back and something caught her eye: some movement at the window behind her.

“Oh, my God. He’s watching us.” She’d tugged down her dress and ran inside.

Jason laughed it off, but the neighbor gave Sofia the creeps. They’d installed lattice fencing on the deck where it faced the neighbor’s house, but if she looked closely, she could still see the neighbor’s windows through the grape vines.

Tonight, with all her friends laughing and enjoying themselves, Sofia tried to let her irritation slide away. She wasn’t going to let anything—not Gretchen’s foul mood or the weird neighbor—spoil her party. She stared in the direction of the window, daring the neighbor to peek out again, but the curtain remained still.

Outside the beam from the lights on the deck, the yard and the rest of the neighbor’s house dissolved into darkness. It was the night of the new moon and the black sky yawned above without end. Sofia thought a new moon in the sky was appropriate for the theme of the get together. A new life. A new start as empty nesters.

She felt Jason behind her before she saw him. She sank back into his body and closed her eyes. He wrapped his arms around her from behind, nuzzling his face into her hair and inhaling. With one last glance at the neighbor’s house, Sofia tried to turn her full attention to her husband, but still felt dread slither across the back of her neck.
