This is quite an old Mary Balogh book published in 1997 and I had to send to the USA for it.

Because when the first of her sister’s ex-lovers is killed, it doesn’t take Natalie long to realise she’s not the only one out for revenge.
So who will catch the murderer first? And who will end up being caught?
Nemesis is a murder mystery with a little bit of romance and humour.
I do read the occasional murder mystery and the author lives in Wales too.
