Publisher's Summary

Amateur sleuth Charley Carpenter discovers a coded journal that could crack her small town’s most infamous cold case wide open in this charming cozy mystery from the USA Today best-selling author of The Book Club Murders.   

As the owner of Old Hat Vintage Fashions, Charley Carpenter supplies retro apparel to the residents of Oakwood, Ohio, but she’s been known to set business aside to play detective when a mystery rears its head. And there’s no bigger mystery in Oakwood than the murder of Regan Fletcher - a case that’s haunted the town for decades.   

Regan’s boyfriend, Carter, did time for the crime - until another man’s confession freed him. But did the “real killer” really do it? Or did Carter walk away with blood on his hands? When Charley stumbles on an old journal written in code, it only complicates the case by revealing a blackmail scheme that targeted dozens of Oakwood’s citizens, giving them all a motive for murder.    

Now, with a spate of new suspects to pursue, plus a fresh murder and the abduction of her sleuthing partner, Charley must dig deeper still into the past - even as she risks being buried by her shadowy prey. Joining forces with Detective Marcus Trenault and the newly formed Oakwood Mystery Book Club, Charley turns to a classic whodunit for clues on catching a killer - before more lives are lost, and the truth dies with them.

Pleasantly Surprised

I have to admit, I downloaded this book because the plot sounded familiar... I have a mystery experience mailer game on Amazon and the plot was very similar so I got it thinking the worst. But, I am happy to say, it is way different than my game and a fantastic story. I really enjoyed the way it played out. I highly recommend it. I have gone on and downloaded her other books in this series as well and look forward to listening to them.

ANOTHER WINNER IN THIS SERIES

COLD CASE, CODED MESSAGES, BLACKMAIL, FORBIDDEN LOVE, AND SO MUCH MORE. I DO LOVE THE ESCAPADES OF CHARLEY, MARK, FRANKIE, AND ALL THE CHARACTERS IN THESE BOOKS. THE NEXT IN THE SERIES PROMISES TO INCLUDE SOME AMAZING THINGS. I JUST HOPE WE DON'T HAVE TO WAIT TOO LONG.
