Amaryllis, Mississippi, is a scrappy little town of strong backbone and Southern hospitality. A brick-paved Main Street, a park, and a legendary ghost in the local cemetery are all part of its heritage. Everybody knows everybody in Amaryllis, and gossip wafts on the breeze. Its people are friendly, its families tight.
On the surface, Amaryllis seems much like the flower for which it’s named - bright and fragrant. But the Amaryllis flower is poison. In the past three years, five unsolved murders have occurred in the town. All the victims were women, and all were killed in similar fashion in their own homes. And just two nights ago - a sixth murder.
Clearly, a killer lives among the good citizens of Amaryllis. And now three terrified women are sure they know who he is - someone they love. None is aware of the others’ suspicions. And each must make the heartrending choice to bring the killer down. But each woman suspects a different man.

I very seldom give 5 stars to a book, but this one deserves it. The tension constantly escalates throughout the story as we see each potential killer's story build. The narrator does an excellent job with the voices. I very seldom figure out "who dunnit" and this book is no exception ... sort of! If you like mystery and suspense, this is your book!
Had to get used to characters telling their own story but turned out to be good.
while I didn't love the book, it kept my interest trying to solve the murders. the reader had most of the voices sounding the same so that was disappointing. I was glad it wasn't super scary because it kept it a light read.
Kept me listening!
everything; great story, awesome narrator.
I just loved the way the story was woven together.
