Publisher's Summary

A total eclipse of the art?

When the rusted-out remains of a vehicle with a unique vanity plate are hauled out of the Freedom River, journalist Ruth Townsend and her best friend, Wren Lawson, think they’ve finally learned the truth about the disappearance of their high school friend, Tanya Blackburn. The rest of Thistlewood may have believed that Tanya simply packed up and headed for the bright lights of Nashville, but the story never made sense to Ruth and Wren, and the mystery has haunted both of them for more than three decades.

Things aren’t always what they appear on the surface, however. A set of paintings left for Ruth at the estate sale of a former teacher seem to contain clues about what really happened to Tanya in the summer of 1987. But when Ruth unboxes the collection, she discovers that Wren may be keeping a few secrets of her own.

Will Ruth uncover the identity of the painter and track down the clues? Or will the answers end up buried at the bottom of the river?

Rysa Walker (aka Jessa Archer) delivers again

I received this book for free to provide an honest review when Rysa Walker was going by Jessa Archer. Book 2 brings us back to Thistlewood, where Ruth Townsend resides as a Journalist. Ruth and her best friend, Wren, used to be a trio in high school, but one day their friend, Tanya, just disappeared. Everyone assumed she finally did what she always said she would do - escaped to Nashville. Everyone that is except Ruth and Wren. They always believed there was more to the disappearance. They knew Tanya wouldn't have left without talking to them about it. Now many years later, Tanya's car is removed from the Freedom River with Tanya inside. Ruth and Wren must work together to solve the mystery of how their best friend ended up dead at the bottom of the river. Rysa Walker delivers yet another fun short book. If you like cozy mysteries this is the series for you.
