Friday, January 18, 2019

Stella can no longer stand her job in the corporate world--she decides-against her Dad's advice to head off to her small hometown where her Uncle has a job at his Realty company waiting for her. Stella knows nothing about her past and the Grandfather who still lives in that small town. She wants to find out--so off she goes--

Her Uncle is a lot easier going then her Dad---but unlike her Dad he kind of wishes that maybe he can reconnect with his father. Her first assignment is to prep an old mansion for sale. The three octogenarians who live there are less then welcoming--or at least two of them aren't. As she is wandering around figuring out what to clean or have cleaned first she stumbles upon a dead body. She does tell the police--a lot of good that did. So she decided to "get to know" the other inhabitants of the town and see if she could figure out who the person was--

Things get dicey and Stella is stalked. Her Uncle is starting to worry and her Dad is still trying to entice her to come home.

So what were the mysteries surrounding this mansion and the family that lived there--you will find out--eventually.

The ending made me so very happy--but I won't tell you why--I think it is what the next book in this series will be about!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Meet Stella O'Neil, retired FBI agent Oscar O'Neil's granddaughter. She's got a lot on her plate, trying to figure out her crazy, stubborn family, the hidden secrets that caused her grandfather's estrangement from her dad, and starting out as a real estate agent. Throw in a dead body found in what used to be the town's "royalty" family manor, and she's neck deep in a mystery.

She may be sweet, but she's pretty stubborn herself.

As Stella's curiosity leads her from one town resident to the next, a dramatic tale of family secrets starts to appear, but is she getting too close to the truth? A scary car chase in the dark has her nerves on edge, but she won't give up until she finds out who the skeleton once was. She's so close... but someone... maybe more than one person... will do anything to stop her.
