Rob Ramer was the perfect husband until he committed the ultimate family faux pas — he shot his sister-in-law to death. Believing himself under attack by an intruder in his home, he fired back. But when evidence is discovered that Rob’s wife, Brooke, was plotting his murder, Brooke is charged with conspiracy in her sister’s death. Geneva, a third sister, is desperate for answers and seeks the help of her friend, San Francisco astrologer Julia Bonatti. Geneva’s lost one sister and now it seems she’ll lose the other. Was this a murder plot or just a terrible accident? Julia vows to find the answer in the stars.

Review: This is the second book in the series, although each one is easily read as a stand alone story. While I enjoy the overall story and the characters, I often find the astrological chart information too difficult to follow/understand.
In this story, we find that many of the characters are hiding secrets, but I had no idea which one was the murderer until deep in the plot. There were many clues, but it wasn't until we had all of them that the killer's identity was clear.
Julia and her friends are becoming more developed characters as the series continues, giving us more insight into their lives and relationships. Some people are still pressing Julia to begin dating again, and there is a hint or two that she might do so in the future. For now, though, I'm enjoying her as an independent single woman.
**I received a copy of this book from the publisher with no expectation of a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**
