Unhappy with her job in Portland as a financial analyst and even more unsettled by her recent divorce, Melanie West is starting over by helping her grandmother renovate a bed-and-breakfast in Oregon’s Sully’s Landing. Melanie and Liza Harris have barely begun to peel off the wallpaper before discovering a skeleton hidden in a wall’s secret compartment. It seems that not only did Angela Morelli never make it to New Jersey after leaving her husband seven years ago, an autopsy reveals that she was pregnant at the time.

Herald Of Death by Kate Kingsbury: Book Review/Giveaway

by Terell Byrd




My mother would have loved the painting on the cover of this book. A Christmas card scene of snow, greenery, a horse and sleigh in front of a lovely building in the countryside; the drawing would have been a centerpiece on our mantle. My father did not care for snow scenes. He said that he had shoveled too much of it to enjoy looking at it.
