This is the first in an amazing series that will keep you glued to the pages! I have already read several others in this series and all of them are well worth reading. They can be read as stand alones--as I obviously did.

Alicia Fairmont's husband was killed in an auto accident--but something is bothering her about it. She does not know any of her husband's family so travels up to Cobble Cove to meet them and hopefully get some answers. She ends up staying there for much longer then she thought she would.

Cobble Cove's head librarian convinces Alicia to take a job at the little library--and there is also John McKinney, the towns newspaper reporter and wannabe author.

Meanwhile her house back on the Island has burned to the ground and she has to go back to see what is up-John goes with her. They come back and that is when she starts to find various articles-a diary and other notes which really have her confused and a bit nervous.

Will she figure out what really happened? Is John friend or foe? What is the deep dark secret that has been in this town for years? There are twists and turns which will throw you off--the ending will astonish you!

Widowed librarian Alicia Fairmont needs answers…

After her husband is killed in a hit and run accident, Alicia travels upstate to his hometown of Cobble Cove, New York. She hopes to locate his estranged family and shed light on his mysterious past. Anticipating staying only a weekend, her visit is extended when she accepts a job at the town’s library.

Secrets stretch decades into the past…

Assisted by handsome newspaper publisher and aspiring novelist, John McKinney, Alicia discovers a connection between her absent in-laws and a secret John’s father has kept for over sixty years. Her investigation is interrupted when she receives word her house has burned and arson is suspected, sending her rushing back to Long Island, accompanied by John.

Back in Cobble Cove, cryptic clues are uncovered…

When Alicia returns, she finds a strange diary, confiscated letters, and a digital audio device containing a recording made the day her husband was killed. Anonymous notes warn Alicia to leave town, but she can’t turn her back on the mystery—or her attraction to John. As the pieces fall into place, evidence points to John’s involvement in her husband’s accident. The past and present threaten to collide, and Alicia confronts her fears…

Has she fallen in love with her husband’s killer?
