I love Tess. I love her quirky life style, her aunt Kitty, her other half Crow and I was glad to get to know her daughter Carla Scout in this new adventure. Tess finds herself wrapped up in a cold case that has gone hot once again. A decade ago a mother killed her child and after getting the help she needed left the country leaving behind two daughters and an ex husband, but now ten years later she has returned to try to mend the fences with her daughters and put her life back together. A tough task which will involve opening up old wounds and bringing painful hidden truths to light if the past is to be laid to rest and the family is going to find a way forward. Tess must face her own demons and decide what kind of life she wants for herself and her family. For those of you who have not yet met Tess she has the spunk and nerve of Stephanie Plum and a huge heart to go with it.
