Becky is in jail. The charge? Murder. There’s also a very deep and dark place inside her own head that she’s found, crawled into and pulled in after her. That’s going to be even harder to get her out of than jail, which will be plenty difficult by itself.
Amy is doing everything she possibly can to clear Becky. She has identified the actual killer and is working hard at getting the goods on her. Amy knows exactly what she needs to clear Becky, if she can only get the crucial evidence in time. It would be hard enough to do for any client, but when it’s someone Amy has internalized to the degree she has Becky, her cousin and best friend, she can’t even defend herself against the pain and agony she goes through when she fears she won’t be able to do it in time.
When she ends up hauling the killer into court, she’s lucky enough that the victim’s widow screams out in open court that she’ll kill Amy just like she did her no-good cheating husband!
That works. It gets Becky out of jail.
Getting her out of that pit in her own mind is going to be lots harder.
Especially when Becky confesses to Amy that she has become so introverted, so fearful of making new intimate connections with people, that the only man she could possibly have a relationship with now, the only man she wants, is Amy’s husband. It’s ripping her up inside, because she can’t do that to Amy. Or Alec either, for that matter.
How much does Amy love Becky?
Amy sees one way out, but that means trouble.
