On the way to my mom’s surprise wedding, I met the most amazing man. Professor David Carstairs was intelligent, handsome, and oh-so-charming—basically every thinking woman’s dream.
But that dream quickly turned into a nightmare.
There was a reason David and I were on that ferry together, and it wasn’t serendipity. Nope; more like the world’s worst practical joke. It turned out the mysterious groom was none other than David’s father … giving new meaning to the phrase “keeping it all in the family.”
But I’ve developed decidedly non-familial feelings about the man. Feelings that are growing stronger and stronger every day. And now this whole idea of “one big happy family” is weighing heavy on me—literally. Because what I thought was the flu? Yeah, not so much. Welcome to the family, indeed.
My Life of Crime, Murder, Missing People and such! Above all else, never forget the victim, that the victim lived, had a life and was loved. The victim and their loved ones deserve justice, as does society.
