"A dark and riveting page-turner with an intelligent twist." —Nadine Matheson, author of The Jigsaw Man, on Someone Had to Do It
ON ASHER LANE, SOME SECRETS ARE WORTH KILLING FOR…
Simone’s mother was murdered when she was thirteen. When her father was convicted, everything changed. Overnight, Simone went from living in a wealthy white neighborhood to scraping by.
Ten years later, Simone has given up on her dreams and lives a quiet life, writing book reviews and getting serious with her boyfriend. But with a true crime documentarian hounding her for a scoop and a surprise encounter with her childhood next-door neighbor, Hunter, the past seems set on haunting her. And after Hunter reveals that his father and her mother had a years-long affair, Simone is determined to find out who really killed her mother.
Simone is convinced that all evidence points to Hunter’s father, a renowned judge who had everything to lose if his affair—and his nascent love child—came to light. Playing the game from all sides, Simone enlists Hunter’s help in her investigation into his family—whether he realizes it or not. But is she so desperate for closure that she'll risk imploding her carefully rebuilt life?

About the Authors
We’re Amber + Danielle and we’re identical twins (best friends, soul mates, all that) who love writing sexy thrillers that blend suspense and cultural commentary.
We both graduated with Communication/PR degrees from Rider University where we wrote and sat on the editorial staff for the On Fire!! Literary Journal. We then pursued a career in fashion and spent five years in NYC working our way up from interns to assistants to managing our own popular fashion + lifestyle blog. Amber is also a screenwriter, so we currently live in Los Angeles, which works out perfectly so Danielle can spoil her 30 (and counting!) plant babies with copious amounts of sunshine. Our debut novel with Graydon House, SOMEONE HAD TO DO IT, is available now. You can follow Amber (@ambersharelle) and Danielle (@dani_nicbrown) on Twitter.
