"Lucy Price is living the American dream. She has been married to her successful husband and businessman, Edward Price for a year and couldn’t be happier until she learns that Eddie is a dangerously ruthless man, heavily involved in illegal activities that threaten not only her marriage, but her life. Eddie abruptly disappears, but not before warning Lucy that if she wants to keep breathing she'd better keep her mouth shut. Six months later, word of her husband surfaces when she learns that he is presumed murdered in a small Texas town, apparently killed by his “wife”, Marlowe Price.
Marlowe is no stranger to trouble. An outcast in her own community for being one of those "hoodoo women," who can curse you or cast you under her beguiling spell, Marlowe is shunned at every turn. Six months ago, a whirlwind romance in Mexico led Marlowe to marry the man she thought she’d spend the rest of her life with. For Marlowe and Eddie, there is no such thing as trouble in paradise. But late one night, when Marlowe witnesses her husband putting the body of a dead man in the trunk of his car, the illusion comes crashing down around her and she knows she has to move fast before the devil comes calling once again.
Now, Lucy and Marlowe must come together to find out where and who Eddie really is, and help each other through the threat he poses. There's nothing more dangerous than a woman scorned...except for two women scorned who are willing to put their pasts behind them and band together to take one bad man down"
Lucy Price has reason to believe that her husband has been involved in some illegal activity and may have killed someone. In a rage he almost kills her as well, but when a neighbor intervenes Eddie runs off.
Meanwhile the "other" Mrs. Price knows more than she's telling, and has seen visions of a "devil" coming her way. She is suspected of killing her husband Eddie, but is he even really dead? More than just the two wives and the police want to know the answer. There are other far more dangerous people interested in his whereabouts.
This is a story of Sex, murder, magic, and mystery. I would rate it 4 out of 5 suspenseful stars.
I received an advance copy for review.
