I don't give out 5 stars very often, but this story I felt deserved it. The author, Kinzie Monroe weaved into her story the salvation message so well and the story line was so unique and heartfelt. Leah is a beyond wealthy business woman who has a heart to share her riches with folks she meets in need. She is dying from cancer and knows her last days will be painful and she will be helpless. So. . . she calls on 5 friends and Kirby an attorney she has just met, and plans a weekend get-a-way for them all at her mansion. Her purpose - to have each of them plan how they would kill her without it looking like a murder. She is willing to pay them $300 million. When her friends come together (who have never met each other before) they have such a love for this woman that they don't think they can go through with it.
The way all these characters interact with each other and the conversations throughout this book had me so wrapped up in the story that I couldn't stop thinking about it, even when I wasn't reading it. Some of the characters are believers in the Lord as their Saviour, and the impact they have upon the others, the questions they face within themselves and the questions they face with the others are so real and so well dealt with that I just wanted to meet the author and say "Thank you" for a job well done! You will not be disappointed if you read this book!!!

Billionaire Leah Dalton was suffering from a malignant brain tumor. She knew she had only few months to live. She hired attorney, Kirby Shelton, to help her choose one of her five best friends to kill her and make it look like an accident. She would give the chosen one millions for doing the job. They all come to her mansion: three Christians, a recovering alcoholic, a gay actor and Leah’s best friend from college. The six become close friends over the week. They try to convince Leah to continue treatment and that her plan is wrong.
This amazing book is about changing lives. We watch as new friendships are formed and faith grows stronger. As I read this book, I was reminded of the quote, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for another.” This is an inspiring novel for all ages.
