With a story so chock full of mesmerizing tales that are well woven into each other, you won’t be able to put this book down. There is Jane who seems like the modern day Nancy Drew who has the expenses of trying to manage an old house while juggling new love with an old flame. And Charlotte’s love life is filled with tension that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Very well written.
Friends Charlotte Ross and Jane Marshall are always in the market for a good mystery, and they find one when Jane inherits a civil war era house. It’s rumored that the house hides a treasure. Between the treasure, unexpected visitors and a murder, the women have their hands full. Still, there’s time for a little romance.
I highly recommend this story and the previous books in the series to anyone who enjoys mystery, surprises and a touch of romance and humor.
Knowing how to begin a mystery is a craft unto itself and Evelyn elects to provide some in depth psychological insights into her main character from the start. ‘Charlotte rubbed her thumb over the tan-line where her engagement ring used to sit. After months without a word from Brett, she’d finally decided to take it off. “Hello? Earth to Charlotte. We’re here.” Jane pulled her Chevy Malibu into the long, curving driveway that led to the old Tudor-style house. “Sorry. Just thinking about... never mind. The house looks just like I remember it. The perfect place for you to get some writing done.” “It is.” Jane agreed. “The quiet seclusion, miles from Eldridge Corners, is part of its charm and catnip for a mystery writer like me.” Jane stopped in front of the garage and honked the horn. There should have been some signs of activity since her fiancé was supposed to be there. But there were none. Jane pressed down on the horn again, this time longer and with more force. Nothing. The great hulk of a building stood silent and stately in the May sunshine, as if it hadn’t been disturbed since General Tarkington’s death three weeks earlier….‘ Nothing vicious, just intriguing, accessible mystery as few authors can match Evelyn’s penchant for combining mystery, humor and romance – and a hefty dose of escapism worthy of a late night reading!
The plot is outlined for us – ‘A spooky old house, rumors of a hidden Civil War treasure, a neighbor’s murder, and an ex-fiancé falling unconscious at her feet—Charlotte Ross has her hands full when she’s invited to stay at her friend, Jane Marshall’s home while her apartment is being renovated. Jane and her new fiancé have sold everything to move to the large estate she’d just inherited near the small town in Illinois, where she grew up. She’s always loved the house, but the cost of living in, and fixing up, a deteriorating old mansion is more than both their incomes combined. If she can’t come up with the money for the next property tax payment, she’ll be forced to give it up. Charlotte is intent on winning back her ex, but her efforts are stymied when he’s suspected of Jane’s neighbor’s murder. The two couples soon discover the rambling old house holds more than one secret when they join forces to find the real killer—and the elusive, Tarkington treasure.’
Few authors can blend the ingredients of a cozy mystery as well as Evelyn Cullet: she is our Agatha Christie and her Charlotte Ross is our version of Miss Jane Marple! There are few accolades greater than that! Grady Harp, February 17
