The Doris Mortman Original You’ve Been Waiting For...
Jenna Welles is trying to clear her head after a divorce she didn’t want and her name after being accused of a murder she didn’t commit. Her husband, Ace Fenton cheated on her. She tossed him out. In retaliation, Ace cleaned out their house, taking everything except the kitchen sink. But that wasn’t the worst part. The worst was when his lover was murdered and Jenna became a prime suspect.
Adding to Jenna’s woes is the escalating harassment of her mother, Rose. Though neither of them wants to think it, the Welles family had been harassed before with deadly results. Could it be that the past that had haunted them was now threatening them? The only good thing to happen to Jenna Welles is that fate introduces her to a really fantastic man, Samson McPhail. The bad thing is he’s the lead detective on Binkie Tobias’s murder. It’s his job to track down the evidence needed to put the guilty party in jail. He’s very good at his job, which means Jenna has to work quickly to find the real killer and prove Sam wrong about her. Even if she has to risk her own life to do it.
THE NEST is a story filled with hurtful betrayals and dangerous jealousies. The need for acceptance. And once in a while, the need for revenge. Set in the midst of a small country club, THE NEST is the first in a series of mysteries sure to appeal to fans of Liane Moriarty, as cliques are formed, gossip is spread, stories are exaggerated, secrets are revealed, daggers are drawn — and sometimes, murders are committed.
