Her smile is the last thing you’ll ever see.
Maureen might be getting on in years but she’s fiercely independent and smart as a whip.
But when she falls and injures her ankle, her daughter Alva is convinced Maureen can no longer take care of herself and is determined to get her some help – which comes in the shape of local caregiver, Dolores.
Maureen tries to say no, she’s fine on her own, but it’s not so easy to get rid of Dolores. She seems to be everywhere, poking her nose into every corner of Maureen’s life, implying to Alva that her mother is getting senile and will soon need constant care.
Maureen feels as if she’s under siege 24/7. And she knows in her heart that there’s something not right about Dolores… But no-one will listen.
Then one of Dolores’s other charges dies in mysterious circumstances and Maureen realises she may be fighting for a lot more than her independence.
Because once Dolores has you in her care, death may seem like a sweet release.
The stunning psychological thriller , perfect for fans of K. L. Slater, Teresa Driscoll, and Andrew Hart.
About the Author
The story begins a little slowly for me. However, the characters are all multi faceted and believable.
I can’t say I liked Dolores and I found her overbearing from the off. The fact that I wanted to warn the elderly folk about this woman’s intentions was to the authors credit. Her skill at portraying the antagonist as a person who people don’t like but people can’t seem to put their finger on why, is to her credit.
I’ve read a few stories in this genre of angel of death/mercy etc. While it was enjoyable enough, and is a good story with a decent plot, it’s not my favourite either.
