In the latest thriller from New York Times bestselling author of the Good Sister, trouble with the in-laws is taken to the extreme - with deadly results. From the steamy Caribbean tropics to the penthouses of New York City, dark secrets and bitter rivalry push a new bride and her mother-in-law to the very edge in this gripping novel of seduction and murder

The oldest son of the rich and powerful Donner family, Jonathan, prefers to remain a playboy, rather than take over the financial and social responsibilities of his family's business empire. But in a near fatal skydiving accident, Jonathan saves the life a radiant young woman, Nicole Pierce. Like no one else he has ever met, she is confident, independent and seemingly impressed by his fortune. Captivated by her beauty and intrigued by her mysterious past, Jonathan is determined to make Nicole his. After a whirlwind romance, the two lovers elope and begin a long honeymoon in the Caribbean.

Returning to the Donner family estate, Nicole is immediately embraced by the family. For John's younger sister and father, she is a breath of fresh air. But not everyone has fallen for her. Jonathan's dominant and powerful mother, Alexandra Donner, believes the newest member of the family is more interested in money than in her son.

Then, tragedy strikes and Jonathan is killed in a scuba diving accident, leaving Nicole to return to the family's compound, a young and tragic widow. But her mother-in-law thinks her son's death was no accident. Was he murdered? Could Nicole be behind the accident? Or, is Alexanrda jealous of her daughter-in-law? Alexendra sets out to prove Nicole's guilt and begins to uncover a web of lies and secrets. Mother-in-law and daughter-in-law come face to face in a gripping climax. The truth is far from clear as this gripping thriller twists and turns to its shocking conclusion.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise For The Suspense Novels Of Diana Diamond

The Good Sister
"[A] satisfying and highly unsettling suspense thriller...Diamond keeps readers guessing until the very end, and her thrilling story is backed up by taut writing and snappy dialogue."--Publishers Weekly

The Babysitter
"A multifaceted, remarkably suspenseful thriller."-Booklist

"Vivid...thoughtful exposition and careful plotting."--Publishers Weekly

The Trophy Wife
"A gripping page-turner."--People Magazine, A Beach Book of the Week

"[A] flawless gem...sharp, brilliant, and strong, the novel is sure to be a girl's best friend-and maybe even a boy's...[Diamond's] convincing action scenes are real enough to leave readers breathless...a clever and genuinely surprising ending tops off a superb thriller."
-Booklist (starred review)

"Vivid...thoughtful exposition and careful plotting...Diamond alternates laughs with chills in this tale of marriage, kidnapping, and high finance in the Susan Isaacs/Olivia Goldsmith school of social satire...a strong climax and satisfying epilogue conclude a smart, suspense-packed novel."
--Publishers Weekly

"A must-read for anyone who has ever wished revenge on a duplicitous lover...fast-paced...climaxes with a shocking denouement."--Women's Own

"Tinged with revenge and intrigue, this thriller twists and turns to an unexpected end."

From the Back Cover:

For Richer
Marrying a millionaire was never on Nicole Pierce's agenda...or was it? From the moment she locked eyes with the impeccably pedigreed Jonathan Donner, she was captivated by the man-and by his money. Or so his formidable family chose to believe...

For Poorer
From the wrong side of the tracks, Nicole had come a long way. All she wanted was to forget the disgrace of poverty; to bask in her newfound wealth. But her in-laws had other ideas for the newlywed bride. Too soon, the shameful truth about her past was back to haunt her...

Till Death Do Us Part
Somebody was determined to rid the blue-blooded family of their newest member. Somebody was prying into her secrets, shadowing her every step. Somebody was determined to rob Nicole of the fortune that wasn't her birthright, of the man who claimed to love her-and of her very life itself...

"Diana Diamond's gripping thriller takes sibling rivalry to a whole new level."
--Marie Claire on The Good Sister

"Imaginative, satisfying...grips the reader and doesn't let go."
--Mary Jane Clark, author of Nobody Knows
