Publisher's Summary

What goes on behind closed doors doesn't always stay there.
Calamity (Callie) Barnstable isn't surprised to learn she's the sole beneficiary of her late father's estate, though she is shocked to discover she has inherited a house in the town of Marketville - a house she didn't know existed. However, there are conditions attached to Callie's inheritance: she must move to Marketville, live in the house, and solve her mother's murder.
Callie's not keen on dredging up a 30-year-old mystery, but if she doesn't do it, there's a scheming psychic named Misty Rivers who is more than happy to expose the Barnstable family secrets. Determined to thwart Misty and fulfill her father's wishes, Callie accepts the challenge. But is she ready to face the skeletons hidden in the attic? Find out.

Good story line. Kept me guessing as to what really happened to Callie's mother. Is she dead or did she just go away. Finally after all the years. The truth does come out.

I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

Skeletons in the Attic

After Callie's father passes away, the shocks and changes keep coming her way. She finds out he never sold the house her mother disappeared from. Although she remembers very little about her mother, her fathers final wish was for them to get closure. So he adds a stipulation to his will that she must dig into the old case. Moving back in her old home she starts to remember little things. And the closer she gets to the truth, the more danger she could be in. She has no idea who to trust and with many secrets rolling around it gets a bit crazy. Fun mystery, you will suspect everyone before its over and it has a surprise ending! The narrator did a nice job!

Daddy, you're really starting to p**s me off.

When the last will and testament of David James Barnstable is read, his only child, Callie, is unsurprised to be the only beneficiary. What does astound her, though, is that her inheritance includes a house in Marketville and a large sum of money in part to renovate it, the remainder to come to her provided she live in the house for one year and investigate her mother's murder. She hadn't known her father had either the house of the money - and her mother had, she believed, fun away from home when Callie was only six.

This is a well written mystery story, complete with nosey neighbours, newfound friends, digging back into newspaper reports of the time, unexpected discoveries at the house - and even a tarot card reader and a so called mystic get involved. Easy to read and intriguing.
Narrator Claira Jordyn gives a good performance, with her p!peasant clear voice having good intonation, expression and understanding.

A fun, easy read, I was fortunate to receive Skeletons in the Attic as a comp!momentary copy from the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. This review is voluntarily given.

Cozy mystery

Any additional comments?

I was hooked from the beginning and I found it got better as the story progressed. There were twist and turns that I did not see coming.
In my opinion this is one of the best mystery that I have listen/read. I think this is to do with the fact that the things she found can be done by anybody especially if you put your mind to it and this gave it more of a releastic feel to it.
The negative points is I found that the narrator was ok but I could not distingush between the some of the characters. I got confused in who was saying what at certain times during the book.
The other negative point is that I did not like the ending. Usually in any mystery it is solved at the end and then the author would tell you what happens to some of the other characters so you don't get any loose ends. However, in this book we get to where the mystery was solved and that was it. It leaves a lot of questions that have not been answered like what do the other characters think about it and are they going to do anything. There are some other questions I have but I can't mention them because I would end up spoiling the story. I am going on the presumption that there is a book two which continues where it left off.
Even with sort of ending I would still recommend the book.
