Summary, etc.:
Three ambitious women have their lives turned upside down in the aftermath of a fire.
Laura has returned to work at Morris and Wood after her maternity leave, only to discover that the woman she brought in to cover for her isn't planning on going anywhere. Despite her close relationship with the agency's CEO, Harry Wood, Laura feels sidelined-- and outmaneuvered. Mia was only supposed to be a temporary hire at Morris and Wood, but she's managed to make herself indispensable to everyone. If people only knew why she was so desperate to keep her job, they might not want her to stay. Janie gave up everything to support her husband and the successful agency he runs. But she has her own dark secret to protect-- and will go to any lengths to keep it safe. -- adapted from jacket

    The women of the Morris and Wood Marketing Agency in Lymington, England, take center stage in this whodunit with a twist. When a fire destroys the agency's controversial new office building, everyone is a suspect. During her arson investigation, detective Emily Marlow discovers that there is tension between several employees as well as the town's anger over construction of the building on the scenic waterfront. Laura Denning and Mia Anderson sparked conflict and office gossip when Laura returned from maternity leave expecting to jump right back into work but found her temporary replacement, Mia, fully entrenched in Laura's role and leading the company's largest account. Owner Harry Wood and his wife, Janie, host a party at their home, where Laura confronts Mia, leading the detective to delve deeper into rumors that Laura is unhappy with Mia staying on despite Mia's easy rapport with the office staff. Coming off the momentum of the #MeToo movement, the workplace competition between women will intrigue suspense readers eager to discover the culprit. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
