Publisher's Summary

Sixteen years after a family feud drove her from the cozy Northwoods village of Whispering Pines, Wisconsin, former detective Jayne O'Shea returns to prepare her grandparents' lake house for sale. Once there, not only does she find that the house has been trashed, her dog discovers a dead body in the backyard.
Jayne intends to stay out of it, but when it becomes obvious the sheriff isn't interested in investigating the death, Jayne can't stop herself. Her list of suspects grows faster than the plants in the commons' pentacle garden. Could it be the local Wiccan green witch with her stash of deadly plants? The shopkeeper who slips into trances and foretells death? The visitor determined to practice black magic?
What Jayne knows for sure is that the closer she gets to solving this crime, the more the sheriff wants her to back off. And when a local fortune teller provides a crucial clue, Jayne knows it's up to her to solve this murder.

Totally Unexpected and Awesome!

Any additional comments?

'Family Secrets' grabbed me right from the start. I could very much relate to protagonist detective Jayne O'Shea and was rooting for her from top to bottom. This is a story about a broken family, torn apart by differing religious/paranormal ideas. There's something afoot in Whispering Pines, and the only one who can figure it all out is Jayne O'Shea. If you enjoy a juicy mystery, witches, Wiccan or anything of the like, then this book is definitely for you. I throughly enjoyed both the writing and the narration! 10/10

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Family Secrets is a good story with a solid plot and strong characters. However, the story dragged in a few areas. Other than that, I enjoyed the story and look forward to the next book.
