Eliza Blake lost her husband six years ago. As a single mother, she does her best to raise six-year-old, Janie. Working with Constance has its ups and downs but when she is found dead, Eliza believes no one has the right to judge or murder anyone.
Constance Young was a star of KEY, a morning television show. One thing she adores is making a grand entrance. She is liked by some, hated by others. Then one morning her housekeeper finds her dead in the swimming pool.
Eliza is shocked to learn Constance is dead. Who would kill her? Producer, Annabelle Murphy, cameraman, B.J. D'Elia, and psychological expert, Dr. Margo Gonzalez, join Eliza in the search for secrets surrounding Constance’s’ death. Known as, ‘The Sunrise Suspense Society,’ the coworkers examine their resourcefulness to get to the bottom of the murder. Faith Hanson, the sister of Constance, faces telling her ill mother that Constance is dead. It was bad enough Constance hardly visited her mother, but now Francis must break the news. Constance was getting ready to leave KEY, and all her viewers would no doubt follow her to her new station. She had been linked to many successful men. With all that in consideration, someone wanted her dead. Stuart Whitaker, a gazillionaire, adored Constance, even giving her a lovely amulet, but the police will not confirm or deny anything about it being missing. With police adding more suspects to the list, the women struggle to find the killer.
When Day Breaks magnificently weaves a strong story that shows just how malicious a person can become. This book grips with such intense action, and dastardly deeds, I was squeezing my hands wondering who could be so evil. The innumerable cast of characters adds just the right seasonings to make this read a page-turner. There is plenty of intrigue, with twists and turns, spinning like a tornado until the killer is identified. The moment I was certain I knew the killer, Mary Jane Clark threw another wrench into the pot throwing me off. That was clever. It allows the tension to rise. She sketches an ingenious puzzle, with one missing piece that everyone seeks in this whooper of a read.
