Certain she’s seen more than enough death for one lifetime, literary agent Allie Cobb is ready to close the book on her amateur sleuthing, even when she learns that an unidentified body has been unearthed in a local state park. But when a worn and haunted-looking woman shows up on her doorstep with a grim story about her young daughter’s disappearance twenty years ago—and the police confirm that the recently discovered body is hers—Allie can’t bear to turn the poor woman away.
Determined to uncover the truth about the young woman’s murder, Allie begins delving into the circumstances of her life and those she knew so many years before. And when she meets powerful resistance from those she questions—many of whom are now trusted leaders in her small, tight-knit community—she’s sure she’s on the right track. But as she narrows down the list of suspects, Allie realizes too late that a cold-blooded killer is dead-set on keeping the secrets of the past buried, and it will take all her wit and cunning to avoid becoming the second young woman to meet an untimely end . . .
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
I love a good cozy mystery especially ones by an author that is new to me. Something about the way they just pull you in from the start and you get to put your sluething skills to work instantly! So, I can tell you I was excited to dive into this one. And, what a ride it was!
I loved getting to help Allie Cobb work on solving an unsolved murder case. I loved the twists and turns, and all the characters that I met along the way! There were ups and downs following Allie throughout the story, and I enjoyed every page turn. By the time I reached the end….I felt like I was an actual part of piecing the clues together to solve the 20 year old mystery and feeling the emotions that Allie felt.
Kenney is a talented author. His writing style is superb and he creates a story that will leave you wanting more. The characters are chiseled wonderfully and the plot line is unforgettable, with an ending that will leave your jaw dropped. I am excited to go back and read the other Allie Cobb books!
