M | 7 comments Could someone help me find this book? The woman was in prison for murdering her boyfriend's teenage daughter. She said she was innocent but noone believed her but a few years later her innocence was proved. But a day before she was let free she commited suicide and left a letter explaining the reason. The detective who got this case also begun investigating the murder of the girl. I think it's a book series but I'm not sure.

I read it in 2014 but i don't know when it was published. It's set in a small town or village and the detective is a female. I think the author is also female. I can't remember the cover

M, can you tell us more about the main characters - their jobs/skills, daughter's age, how long was the woman in prison, who and where was the girl's mother, etc.?

What did they think was her motive for killing her boyfriend's daughter?

Is it set in U.S./England/etc. during modern times?
