Once there, she finds the house has been trashed ...and a body of a young woman is in the backyard. Being a former cop, she knows enough not to do anything to interfere with possible evidence.
The local police don't seem to be too concerned, but Jayne can't help but investigate on her own.
Whispering Pines is a small town in Wisconsin, filled with all kinds of quirky, fun, strange people. Wiccans seem to make up the majority. Seems like the dead woman had a tatoo similar to what is seen among the Wiccan. And then Jayne discovers that her grandmother was also involved.
There's the man who can see when death is coming. Then there's the young girl who wants to learn the ropes ... learn the spells and incantations. But to what means?
All of these are suspects ... and the more Jayne investigates, the more the local sheriff warns her off. But Jayne is tenacious, if nothing else. Something sinister is affecting the town.
I would love to think there are still small towns similar to this one ... minus the dead body. Most of the residents are friendly and welcoming ... but as in most small towns, everyone knows everyone's business ... usually.
It's a well written story and I loved all the characters. No one can resist Meeka ... Jayne's four-footed partner. I'm hoping this may turn into a series. This is an author to keep an eye on.
Many thanks to the author for the advance digital copy. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
Family Secrets provides a realistic glimpse into the Wiccan religion. Regardless of your beliefs (or non-beliefs), I truly believe you'll love this book and enjoy Jayne's adventures in Whispering Pines as much as I did. The descriptions of sights, sounds & sensations were so realistic, so vivid, that I could picture what was happening almost felt like I was seeing and experiencing it, too!
This charming story is well written. It combines a unique plot, an intricate, tangled crime with loads of quirky characters & and a cute, human-like dog. It's a highly captivating story that will hold your attention from start to finish...I couldn't put it down. I found myself aching for more as I turned to the last page.
I didn't figure out who the guilty party was until it was revealed, so many suspects and each a mystery in themselves! To be completely honest, I read this book twice to see if there were "give away clues" that I might have missed and I found none!
I don't believe in giving spoilers on a great read, I like to more or less enjoy a book without knowing too much about the story, a mystery should be a mystery when you start to read it, I will say this,this sleepy little town has more secrets and quirks than a house full of lawyers!! I would recommend this book to anyone that loves a, "who done it", Great job, Shawn McGuire!!
As you can tell, I enjoyed this book. I loved the characters. I really feel like I got to know them well. I loved the descriptions of the scenery. I could really "see" the background. And I found the descriptions of the Wiccan information very interesting. I've always been curious about it and might have to do some more research.
And I liked that I didn't guess whodunit. I knew that person was shady but didn't guess they were the murderer.
Definitely an excellent start to a series.
Oh, and I have to add I did receive an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
