If you have not read a book from this author, you are really missing out on great stories that captivate an audience with words that dance across the pages with adventure. I love how the author develops her characters so well and gives them personalities we can all relate to. Her descriptions of the area that the story takes place in makes you feel very welcoming.
This book is the first in an exciting series where we meet Tj Jensen. Tj is a very responsible and caring person. She has a big heart for children which makes her job as a high school PE coach perfect for her. The town is so quaint and is decorated for the fall. I could picture pumpkins gracing the storefronts and festive decorations that add to the excitement of fall.
Because of an unexpected tragedy , Tj is now caring for her two half-sisters. They all live together with her father and grandfather in a resort they run. I love the relationship the family has and the author did a great job of showing how family comes together in a tragedy.
Being back in her hometown, Tj will run into old friends and perhaps find a new person that will help her get out more. She seems to stay busy with work and family which leaves little time for herself. What happens when an old friend of Tj is found dead? Will she help with the investigation or get in the way? Tj's old friend had many secrets that will change lives and it was enduring to see how much compassion Tj had for him. I felt so sad knowing that this person was almost forgotten about in the town and had little friends or family to visit him. I loved the way the story flowed so easily and gave readers many twists that keeps you glued to the book. I loved reading how the suspect gets narrowed down by brilliant writing and intriguing facts. I was very surprised by who it was and the ending is a great suspenseful whodunit.
Don't miss this great introduction to the Tj Jensen Mystery Series. It is a good cozy mystery that has intrigue, secrets, and a town full of interesting characters. It's time to get comfy and read a book that you will not be able to put down. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.
I received a copy of this book from Great Escapes Book Tours for an honest review.
