"This book has been indelibly etched into my brain...You will love this book and not want to put it down." -- Monica Drahonovsky, Monica Reads, InDepth NH
"Milliken is an inventive, imaginative storyteller." -- Frank O. Smith, Maine Sunday Telegram
"Maureen Milliken has written a terrific mystery!" -- Marilyn's Mystery Reads"I fully agree with another of my favorite authors, Kate Flora, who wrote that Maureen, 'a seasoned reporter, has a finely honed ability to capture the essence of rural Maine - the culture, the gossip, the way everyone knows too much (or thinks they do) about other's lives. I love the complexity and depth of her well-drawn imperfect characters.'" -- George Smith, Bangor Daily News
From the Author
With the second book in the Bernie O'Dea mystery series, I not only wanted to go deeper into the characters and what drives them, but also advance the relationship between the two protagonists, Bernie and Pete. Characters, how they interact and relate to others, the decisions they make, and their actions are what drive plot. There is nothing more compelling to me as a writer than my characters and what's going on with them. I hope readers care about them and related to them and I look forward to developing them further in the third Bernie O'Dea book, due out in 2017!
