After a lifetime of marriage, Marcy Hammer is ready to get herself unhitched - just as everyone else in her life is looking for a commitment. Her new boyfriend, Jon, wants to get serious, and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Harvey, is desperate to get back together. When her headstrong daughter announces a secret engagement to Harvey’s attorney, Marcy finds herself planning her daughter’s wedding as she plans her own divorce. Now with two huge events on the horizon, the indomitable Marcy soon realizes that there’s nothing like a wedding to bring out the worst in everybody.

This much we do know: Sophie Toscan du Plantier was murdered days before Christmas in 1996, her broken body discovered at the edge of her property near the town of Schull in West Cork, Ireland. The rest remains a mystery. Gripping, yet ever elusive, join the real-life hunt for answers in the year’s first not-to-be-missed, true-crime series.

This is not really a story because there is no end ‘except to say there is no end’....

I can’t believe I wasted hours to listen to this. I very much enjoyed the voices of the 2 narrators but the actual story is lacking at best.

I really enjoyed the character development and how this story developed but the sudden ending was such a disappointment. I actually had to go back and check a couple times as I thought I had some glitch on my app. Did the author go on vacation and just forget she had a deadline?
