Laurie is approached by Robert and Cynthia Bell, parents of Dr. Martin Bell, a famously charming and talented physician who was shot dead as he pulled into the driveway of his Greenwich Village carriage house five years ago. The Bells are sure that Martin’s disgraced and erratic wife, Kendra, carried out the murder. Determined to prove Kendra’s guilt and win custody over their grandchildren, they plead with Laurie to feature their son’s case on Under Suspicion. Kendra has lived under a blanket of suspicion since Martin’s death, with the tabloid media depicting her as a secretive, mentally unstable gold-digger. Laurie’s show is a chance for her to clear her name. Once Laurie dives into the case, she learns that Martin wasn’t the picture-perfect husband, father, and doctor he appeared to be and was carrying secrets of his own. And what does the web of lies ensnaring the Bell family have to do with a dangerous stranger who watches Laurie from afar.
Everyone knows I really enjoy this series. I’ve read all of the books in it and I love the way these authors write together. I’m probably the only person who doesn’t like Laurie and Alex’s relationship and I don’t know why! I find him very annoying for some reason 😂 but that’s the only thing about this book I wasn’t a fan of. I think the book could have done without the story of them apartment hunting and stuck to the Bell’s case. I’d probably have given it 4.5 or even 5 stars if that was the case. I still really enjoyed this and liked the mystery of it. Most of the characters throughout seemed to have no involvement and Kendra was the main focus. For a lot of the book it seems like Laurie is going around in circles as there doesn’t seem to be any new evidence but it did all come together in the end. I really enjoyed the whole story and the characters. I can’t wait for the next book in this series!
