Beth, Portia, and Eddie Morgan haven’t all been together in years. And for very good reasons–we’ll get to those later. But when their wealthy grandfather dies and leaves a cryptic final message in his wake, the siblings and their respective partners must come together for a cross-country road trip to fulfill his final wish and–more importantly–secure their inheritance.
But time with your family can be tough. It is for everyone. It’s even harder when you’re all keeping secrets and trying to forget a memory, a missing person, an act of revenge, the man in the black truck who won’t stop following your car–and especially when at least one of you is a killer and there’s a body in the trunk. Just to name a few reasons. But money is a powerful motivator. It is for everyone.
The story of this book was so good. It has quite a few mysteries to it- secrets that are mentioned that we don’t find out until later. I found the characters easy to connect with and I was definitely invested in their story. The book kept me guessing all the way along with so many things to figure out. The truck following them, what had happened on the first road trip and Beth’s secrets that are alluded to kept me interested in the story for the whole book. It didn’t lag in the middle and the story never felt dragged out. My only issue was the ending. I absolutely hate an ending that doesn’t finish everything up. It completely ruins a book for me. That was definitely an issue here and I would have liked to have a more complete ending.
