In exclusive Star Island, Miami, blood isn’t always thicker than water . . . The second book in a thrilling time traveling mystery series featuring a former Miami PD who solves murders before they happen—by going back in time.

The night of his fiftieth birthday, software billionaire Jack Warren went missing hundreds of miles out to sea, his blood spattered aboard his yacht, his body gone. His mistress, Ava Day, was charged with his murder—but she had already vanished without a trace.

Now, ten years later, detective Lila Day still refuses to believe that her sister is a cold-blooded killer. To clear Ava’s name and solve this long-cold case, Lila asks her friend Teddy Hawkins to do what he has done before—send her back to time, to solve the crime before it takes place.

And so she goes back to 2008, with only a month to prove her sister’s innocence and bring Warren’s real killer to justice. But as she dives ever deeper into the world of high-speed yachting and corporate intrigue, and the night of Warren’s birthday draws ever closer, the truth becomes murkier than ever. And then Lila discovers information that shocks her deeply—a terrible truth that changes everything she thought she knew about her sister, and herself.

Liv Spector was raised on Cape Cod and currently lives in Canada. She has worked as an oyster shucker, dancer, farmhand, journalist, and teacher. A graduate of McGill University in Montreal, she received her MFA from Brooklyn College.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Beack Read This series should be read in order. I loved the first book but this one is not quite as good. I had a much easier time figuring out the mystery in this one. Once again Lyla travels back in time to solve a murder among the rich, famous and decadent on a yacht sailing through the Caribbean. Both books have Sex, Drugs and some Sci-Fi. This is a quick read and perfect for the beach. Enjoy it
