If Katie Bonner's late husband hadn't invested all their savings in the craft fair Artisans Alley - which Katie is now responsible for keeping in the black - the Webster mansion could have been hers to remodel. For years she dreamed of renovating the old place on Victoria Square into a bed and breakfast. Now that dream belongs to another young couple.
But their dream becomes a nightmare when a skeleton is discovered, sealed in one of the walls of the mansion. The bones belong to Heather Winston, who went missing 22 years ago. Her aunt is Rose Nash, a jewelry vendor at Artisans Alley, who is determined to find her niece's murderer and asks for Katie's help to do it. The case may be cold, but the killer is very much alive - and ready to go to any lengths to keep past secrets buried...
"It's a suspenseful whodunit with several possible suspects." (RT Book Reviews)

EXCELLENT Author, GOOD Narrator
I would because I love Lorraine Bartlett's books. I'm not, however, too taken with Jorjeana Marie's narration. Even though she was clear, I don't like the way some people talk like they have a frog in their throat and need to clear it, or that they just got out of bed - she made some characters sound like that. And it was a little slow for me - I could read it much faster.
Yes, Lorraine knows just how to keep a person on the edge of their seat by putting characters in scary situations.
Katie - no frog throat for the most part.
A down home, cozy thriller!
I love Lorraine Bartlett's writing, and I highly recommend reading or listening to her books!
