Even in quaint little towns where everyone has known everyone else for most of their lives and where Christianity is still a big part of life, murders (unfortunately) still occur. Good thing everyone DOES know almost everyone else: that certainly makes it easier for the police to ferret out information.
Of course, with an open and shut case there isn't much that needs to be ferreted out, but what if it really isn't all that "open and shut"? Hmmmm... Perhaps the Chief of Police, Matthew Travis, jumped to conclusions just because he found Jimmy covered in blood, holding a knife, and lunging for him. Could it really be that easy, Matthew?
Unfortunately for Matthew, his Aunt Emily wasn't certain Jimmy was guilty, and since she was a psychologist she might just know a thing or two. What are you going to do now, Matthew?
Before long this seemingly open and shut case has several suspects! "As Chief of Police for the Village of Serenity Springs, Matthew’s job was to maintain the peace in the village. Most of his job was handling domestic violence calls, ensuring that traffic laws were followed.... It wasn’t his job to investigate major crimes. That duty fell to the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department." Unfortunately, the sheriff believed Jimmy was the murderer, and he was none too interested in having multiple suspects. Looks like Matthew will have to do some investigating whether the sheriff has his man or not.
Follow Matthew, his staff, and Aunt Emily as they try to find the real killer. Can they clear Jimmy and find out who the murderer really is? Or are they only spinning their wheels since the real killer IS Jimmy?
Hopefully the truth will out no matter how painful it might be. Is the killer an old friend? Someone Matthew and Aunt Emily have known for years? Or is (s)he a newer resident - someone hiding their past and true identity? Only by digging into the facts (and not what LOOKS obvious or what someone WANTS him to believe) will Matthew ever solve the case. Good thing Aunt Emily had her doubts about Jimmy. Otherwise no one would have ever known if he was truly guilty or not.
This is a good, clean story, but it could definitely use a good editing. The author has written so many books that I expected better than this. Punctuation is often not there (especially when it comes to commas), and sometimes there is no space between sentences. After a while it became distracting but not so much that I finally gave up and quit reading.
The story is worth reading so don't let the problems distract you. Hang in there so you will finally know the truth. And that truth won't become evident until toward the end of the story so follow the investigation all the way through to its conclusion. You'll be glad you did.
It is a clean read and for the most part free from ebook gremlins. This does not seem to be this authors normal genre and she may want to retool a bit before revisiting.
