“A must read.”
“I loved this book! I couldn’t put it down, it was easy to read, and spine tingling, at times. The characters were realistic and easily engaging.”
Two sisters, Jacqueline and Jeri, have rented a rustic cabin for a week on South Lake Tahoe's shore owned by the Kelly family. Emma Kelly, the daughter of Lex Kelly, a wealthy New York businessman, has been missing for three weeks. The police have no clues, leads, or suspects. On the first day of Jacqueline and Jeri's vacation, they discover the gruesome remains of a woman in the closet of an old mansion located next door to the cabin they have rented.
Shocking as this crime may be, it is not the soul of the book. It becomes clear that the murder victim holds secrets for the reader.
As Jacqueline and Jeri venture farther into the mystery, Jacqueline, too, disappears. Time is running out as pending doom surrounds the two sisters.
