Jennifer Shannon lives in secure, affluent McLean, Virginia, where she stumbles into danger lurking in places she thought absolutely safe. Her passion for weekend treasure hunting at local garage and estate sales pulls her into a twisted world of crime, child abuse and murder. Forced to match wits with a viillain hell-bent on revenge, her family's safety and her own desperate situation hinge on her intelligence and resourcefulness. Nothing prepares her for the ultimate discovery, producing a startling climax.

Dont be fooled by the title!

The title, and first 30 minutes of listening may lull you into thinking you've got a cozy little mystery, but do not be fooled! This book moves abruptly into child abuse, madness, kidnapping, murder and many other horrors. The story is compelling, with complex characters and plot twists, but it is often overshadowed by the stilted dialogue. Her characterization of a couple married more than 40 years is awkward and reserved. The author seems to pause the story periodically to stand on various soap-boxes regarding a number of worthy social causes, but they are weird breaks in the story telling and don't serve the book. The narrator uses an artificially low-pitched voice for the main character, making her a bit irritating when the listener should feel sympathetic. She does a far better job with other characters. I'd recommend it for the overall story, but be prepared to overlook some awkward writing.

Not what I expected

I quit listening after chapter 22 when the story took a worse turn after already disappointing me. I must clarify that I purchased the book after falling in love with the Hallmark movie series. This book is not the same easy-going light mystery. Contains a 2nd storyline of a morbid tale of child abuse, which was a surprise I hadn't expected.
