New York Times bestselling romance author Jude Deveraux makes her debut in the world of mystery with a story of old secrets, deadly grudges and an improbable group of friends who are determined to uncover the truth regardless of the consequences …

Sara Medlar is a household name in romance, with millions of books sold. But lately, retirement has been boring her and she’s found herself back in her hometown of Lachlan, Florida, remodeling the grand old mansion she’d admired as a child. It’s much too big for her alone, but she’d die before letting anyone in town know that.

Then Sara’s niece Kate is offered a job in Lachlan—a start in what could be a very successful career in real estate. She accepts immediately, but with so little saved up, she’ll have to approach her estranged yet incredibly famous aunt for a place to stay while she gets herself settled. But when she arrives at Sara’s home, she finds she’s not the only long-term houseguest. Jackson Wyatt already has his own room, and though it’s impossible to deny his good looks and charm—he’s clearly got her aunt wrapped around his finger—she’s also never met anyone who irritates her quite like Jack does.

However, when two skeletons are accidentally uncovered in the quiet town, this unlikely trio is suddenly thrust together by a common goal: to solve a mystery everyone else seems eager to keep under wraps. United by a sense of justice and the desire to right old wrongs, Sara, Kate and Jack will have to dig into Lachlan’s murky past to unravel the small town’s dark secrets and work to bring the awful truth to light.

I love this book, first time reading Jude Devereaux; so glad I found this author. The characters were so likable, all of them, especially Aunt Sara; Jack and Kate. They were fabulous. I like how she went back in time and had real conversations while reminiscing. I like the way the sheriff was at first and then how he came around. Great Read, will read another one for sure. I highly recommend.

I was glad there were upbeat characters rather than the loner who has to fight everyone, but is brillant and right.

This was much more of a romance than it was a mystery. Predictable. The narrator pronounced words that I had to go back and listen again to tell what they were. She read many sentences as angry when it should’ve come out sarcastic. I may stay with authors I am familiar with.

This was a great story! I love Sara, Kate, and Jack. They are a terrific trio. Jude Devereaux has always created characters you feel like you know and this is no exception. I did guess part of the mystery but there was still a plot twist that made it a really satisfying end. I wasn’t sure before I listened, because Jude Devereaux is known for her romances, but she pulled off a fantastic mystery! The characters (main and supporting) as well as the plot line we’re well developed and interesting. The narrator was good - not the best but there are a lot worse.

Too long and not relatable. Prefer JDs period romances... tbh.

Couldn't put it down. An extremely well-written story that kept my attention throughout. The narrator did an excellent job of adding another dimension to the engaging and well-defined characters. As for the killer, not once did I guess correctly. But once I knew it made complete sense. What a wonderful book. I highly recommend it. Now, I'm going to go check and see if there are any more books written in this world. I'd love to see more about the characters.

I really liked the fact that this was narrated by the author and loved her voice. I got drawn in right away with the character development and plot. It felt like I was on an adventure with Sarah, Jack and Kate. Even though I thought I had it figured out, there was a plot twist I didn't see coming. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.

Jude Devereaux always comes through. i was glued! Very entertaining and the characters likeable. She always makes people seem so real - not over done or ridiculous as some writers do. I recommend.
