While the mystery plot kept morphing into something new as more information is discovered, it always kept my full attention. Then something odd happened at the end, which caused me to re-read the last third of the book, because matters ceased to make sense to me.
While a second read did clarify some matters, I still felt the author had allowed the story to get a bit away from her while she focused on the romance. But, to that point, it is a lovely romance, and I enjoyed every minute of it. So I’m giving this a 4.5 for the sidebar conclusion to who broke into her house and stole some items, and rounding up rather than down because I had a fabulous read plus I rather enjoyed the surprise ending concerning the gold bars, that literally came out of nowhere.
I started smiling then and continued to be captivated for the rest of the book.
The speaker is a neighbour she has never met before, a good-looking antiques dealer.
Hannah gets home one day to find her house has been burgled and from then on her life takes an exciting turn. She finds herself attracted to her neighbour, but also to the detective assigned to her case.
Then the discovery of her grandmother’s hidden letters sets her on the trail of a family mystery that dates back to WW II..
I should tell you that I was already a big fan of Lynette Sofras before I read this book. She writes a good story fluently and well.
This one is no exception. Highly recommended.
Hannah inherits her grandmothers house. She meets her neighbor Jan, a successful antique dealer and begins to settle in. Then her house is burglarized. She meets the Detective in charge Callum. Both men seem interested in her. Also, she finds some old letters written to her Grandmother and she does some investigating on her own. Who are the letters from and exactly what do they mean?
She is caught up in her investigation, and trying to deside if she should get involved with either of the men. But what is Jan hiding from her? Callum is determined to find out his (Jan's) secrets and and find who ever committed the burglary. Also what is her grandmother hiding? Hannah is about to find out her family secrets.
I really liked Hannah, she is nice , inquisitive and wants a happy life. She falls for two men, Jan the Dutch neighbor, and Callum the detective. She is fascinated with what she finds in her Grandmother's home, and wants to find out the truth. A fast paced well written mystery.
The plot is original, the characters are believable, there are plenty of twists and turns and secrets revealed. I was hooked from the first page. I highly recommend Cocktails and Lies to those who love a great mystery with a splash or romance.
