Lydia Krause has no sooner moved to Twin Lakes, an upscale retirement community on Long Island, when she recognizes the man she's been introduced to as the group's financial advisor is the convicted embezzler who drove her sister to suicide. She has a public shouting match with his wife, who is discovered dead the following morning, mowed down by Lydia's Lexus. In the process of clearing her name, Lydia makes friends and enemies, helps resolve her grown daughters' problems, and finds new love.
Detective Molina appeared deep in thought. Finally he spoke. “It’s quite a puzzle we have: two women, both Twin Lakes residents, argue in public. The following morning, one woman’s dead, struck down by the vehicle of the other.”
Lydia’s hand flew to her pounding heart. “I didn’t kill Claire Weill! Why should I? Besides, I wouldn’t be stupid enough to use my own car!”
He gave her a sidelong glance. “That might be considered a stroke of genius.”
Lydia gasped. This detective managed to twist whatever she said into a damning statement.
