  • Summary:

    When her Aunt Jena is shot in the leg, Becky Whatt thinks it's just a freak occurrence. What else could it be in the sleepy little town of Blair, Ohio? Then come the prank calls. Then the break-in attempts. By the time they find a body in the restaurant at the old hotel, Becky and Jena feel like they might be in over their heads. But with the local police seemingly unable to help, the ladies must take matters into their own hands if they are to bring order back into their lives.


     The story captures you from the very beginning, bringing you very quickly into the world of Aunt Jena and Becky Whatt. Though the ladies were waiting to hear more info about who had shot Jena and why, mysterious things begin to happen which shed more light on the subject. Slowly but surely, the bigger picture begins to appear, and the reader is consumed with wanting to know more information about the background of the criminals. The characters take the investigation into their own hands, trying to find out the truth, but it isn't what they thought it would be. Though this is an adult mystery, this story is cleanly written and can be read by young adults as well. The characters are interesting and fun, with the feeling of being around a bunch of girlfriends who are curious and determined. Mystery lovers everywhere will love this new mysery by Nioma Stephan.
