Summary

Blake Nelson had three perfect wives. Until one of them killed him.

Blake's dead. His wife killed him.

The question is...which one?

Rachel, Emily and Tina have nothing in common - except that they share a husband and a homestead.

When their beloved Blake is found dead under the desert sun, the questions pile up. But none of the widows know who would want to kill a good man like their husband.

At least, that's what they'll tell the police....

Tedious

I read some reviews for this book that made me want to read it. Sadly I do not share the positive comments about the story at all and found it very tedious. In some parts I was interested to learn of plural marriages and the lifestyle of Latter Day Saints but On the whole feel the story was rather long winded and boring in places.
