Synopsis (From Netgalley)
Vengeance never dies. When Art Stanhope’s bitter, vindictive wife commits suicide, he believes all his troubles are over. Instead, they’re just beginning. For Catherine’s fury transcends even the grave, turning Art’s world into a living hell as he struggles to keep his son and new fiancée safe from her lust for vengeance. But there are secrets behind Catherine’s death that Art doesn’t know—secrets that could prove deadly for everyone involved as they learn too late that death is not always a permanent condition, and sometimes the ultimate sacrifice can be too great a price to pay.
Art Stanhope has got some serious problems with his loved ones! His wife, super crazy, commits suicide- or does she? Catherine comes back from the grave to exact revenge on the people who hurt her. Art, his son Connor, his girlfriend (which happens to be his dead wife’s sister), and his father must find a way to rid themselves of Catherine for good. They can only do this by having the person who really killed Catherine, kill her once again. But everyone has a reason for wanting her dead…
Okay, this book wasn’t terrible, but it just didn’t really do anything for me. There were two parts that got my pulse going a little but then just sort of fizzled with the outcome. It was all so predictable that I found it hard to really just enjoy it. The one thing going for this book, is that it is a short read.
I will say I did like the main character. Art Stanhope, he could use a little more development, but he was enjoyable as a leading character. The other characters were really just background noise. I think though Catherine could have been a great nemesis if she had been developed a little more as well. Maybe having such a short story was actually a bad idea, the synopsis is fantastic, but it just sort of didn’t make the mark.
I don’t think this is a series, but it could definitely become one. I don’t think I’ll read any type of sequel. However, as this is my first book from the author, I will attempt another one if it crosses my path.
