We rated this book:


Amy Webber has happily settled into married life with Richard Muir and the two are looking forward to the new chapter in their lives. When her aunt Lydia shows up concerned for her best friend Zelda, they go with her to check things out only to discover a dead body in the woman’s garden. As secrets are revealed, the evidence begins to point in Zelda’s direction. In order to help her aunt’s friend, Amy takes it upon herself to dig into the past and uncover secrets that could make Zelda look even guiltier but could also send her directly to the killer.

Victoria Gilbert does a brilliant job delivering a mystery that dips into the past through the accounts of various characters to events that happened decades ago. As Amy pieces together what a choir, an allergic reaction to a tainted gift, a car crash, and mean girls have in common, she stumbles upon a shocking discovery. The writing is rich in details that paint vivid visuals such as Aunt Lydia’s hair being gray while also described as gleaming and smooth as liquid silver. The setting adds to the charm of the characters through an eclectic community and a stunning atmosphere at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
