Lifting the veil of secrecy on a grand Southern family in decline, New York Times best-selling author Tanya Anne Crosby explores the lives of Caroline, Augusta, and Savannah Aldridge, three sisters who share a dark past and an uncertain future....
Caroline Aldridge was surprised by the number of mourners at her mother's funeral. Evidently the newspaper heiress who had caused her children so much pain was well-loved by everyone else in Charleston. Now she was gone, leaving behind countless secrets - and a few demands: Caroline and her sisters must live together for one year or lose their inheritance. And Caroline must take over The Tribune. But a killer is making headlines, and Caroline may have unwittingly stepped into the crosshairs....
A series of kidnappings and murders resurrect the sisters' memories of their brother's disappearance as a child - and Caroline fears she may be next. Yet in the midst of her turmoil, she may be rekindling a romance she'd extinguished long ago. With Jack back in her life and the tattered bonds of sisterhood slowly mending, Caroline hopes the family can restore its position in Charleston society - unless a sinister force beyond their control tears them apart forever....

A couple of Grisham Lawyer stories
No extreme reaction, but it maintained my attention.
I am from the Charleston Area and the book took me home. I could relate to all of the family issues of the sisters as well as the relationship they had with Sadie. For the people who did not like the narrator, you have to go to Charleston and become engrossed in the "Gulla" culture to fully understand Sadie's conversation. The fact that all of the answers were not in the first book does not bother me because it is a series. In my opinion that is the purpose of a series. Looking forward to more and I will download all of the books from Tonya Ann Crosby. Nothing like a man getting in touch with his softer side.
I'm a huge fan of Tanya Anne Crosby's writing & couldn't wait for this book...it kept me on the edge of my seat with all the twists & turns. Her characters always include very strong women...expect the unexpected! The narrator was awesome...perfect for the story!
I enjoyed the characters and the plot of the story, and will probably go forward with the sequel, but didn't really like some aspects of the performance.
Some of the pronunciations really grated on me. If you're easily annoyed by such things you will want to know that the performer will pronounce "hung up" as "hun-gup", and "rang" as "ranguh", along with other assorted oddities of pronunciation.
This is clearly a first book in a series. There were some loose ends that either were not resolved, or were resolved in such a simplistic way that you know there must be more to come.
