My 4 Star Review

The Author, Catherine Lavender has done a wonderful work in this entertaining murder romance story. Filled with characters that all had reasons to murder the victim Jason Rowe.
The whole plot evolved around Bright Horizon, home for troubled kids but with lots of potential. Helping the children furthering their careers and opportunities in life. Woven with greed, lust, affairs, doubt and their own ambition to enhance themselves to the end. But as we all know pride always comes before the fall.
The one true character in this book was Leah who found herself mixed in all of the confusion trying to find the murderer of her murdered lover. The daughter of a minister whose teaching kept her almost on the straight and narrow. Finding her self in a affair with a man that was not honest with her. Learning about his family, doing some investigating of her own into Jason's death. Discover secrets as she went along. Hated almost by every woman in the book. 
While she dreams of becoming a pianist. Taking matters in her own hands to make her dream come true. Her strong will filled spirit refuse to lay down but fight for what is hers, finding her solace in music as it lifts her from her circumstances into a new life. 
The supporting character of Mrs. Jacobi, elderly neighbor and retired piano teacher who had a profound take on her life sets her on her course to meet a man Austin while in search for her own dreams.
The many characters involved with their own stories, some living in lies, others with deceit was nicely illustrated through out the book. As the plot thickens and more people got hurt, were blackmailed or threatened. 
A nice build up to this good read.
