"You know that big smile you wear after you just finish a good book? The one that seems to cement the mood for the rest of the day? Well, that's what I felt after reading Family is Murder." -Christine Warner, International bestselling author


Sean and Sara McKinley put out an ad for a maid, never expecting Sara's birth mother to apply-or at least that's who the woman is claiming to be. While Sean is suspicious of the woman's true identity and her motives, Sara opens her heart to the woman. But when a dead body turns up soon after Sara's supposed mother takes off without so much as a goodbye, they both must question the truth.


Could they have welcomed a killer into their home without even knowing it?
