Happy Friday!

The book I’m featuring this week is:


Amazon | Goodreads

Mill Creek, Wisconsin
July 1946

She should have paid more attention to her longtime neighbor, Oliver Schneider, when she passed him on the road at dawn.

I am beyond excited to be finally reading this one! Right now I’m about halfway through but I’m fully sucked in and can’t wait to see how the rest of it goes. It’s officially releasing in a few weeks on Dec 3, 2019. Pre-order your copy because just like Jaime Jo Wright’s other books, this is another one you won’t want to miss!

About the Book:

After Aggie Dunkirk’s career is unceremoniously ended by her own mistakes, she finds herself traveling to Wisconsin, where her grandmother, Mumsie, lives alone in her vintage, though very outdated, home. Aggie didn’t plan for how eccentric Mumsie has become, obsessing over an old, unsolved crime scene–even going so far as to re-create it in a dollhouse.

Mystery seems to follow Aggie when she finds work as a secretary helping to restore the flooded historical part of the town’s cemetery. Forced to work with a puzzling yet attractive archaeologist, she exhumes the past’s secrets and unwittingly uncovers a crime that some will go to any length to keep hidden–even if that means silencing Aggie.

In 1946, Imogene Grayson works in a beauty salon but has her sights set on Hollywood. But coming home to discover her younger sister’s body in the attic changes everything. Unfamiliar with the burgeoning world of forensic science and, as a woman, not particularly welcomed into the investigation, Imogene is nonetheless determined to stay involved. As her sister’s case grows cold, Imogene vows to find justice . . . no matter the cost.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “A Match for Emma” by Pepper Basham:

    “Molly Caudwell needed a perfect match, and Emma Mitchell was the woman to give the newest waitress her very own happily-ever-after.”

  3. Happy Saturday! Today, I’m currently reading On My Honour by Elizabeth John’s, so I’ll share from there.

    “Meg looked down at her hands, which were raw from lye soap. How did people do this every day?”

    Hope you’re having a good weekend filled with awesome reading time and rest. 😊❤📖
