The Good Book Guide Review

In 1943, in the relative wartime haven of the Bahamas, two very different women are thrown together when ambition and murder threaten to tear their lives apart. When young waitress Dodie Wyatt tries to help a man stabbed in an alleyway, she brings trouble straight to her own door. Meanwhile, elegant diplomat’s wife Ella Stanford throws herself into charity work to stifle her disappointment in her marriage, until dark secrets draw her into danger. Then a powerful magnate is found dead, and Dodie and Ella must pool their resources to find the truth, and to ensure their own survival.
