Today’s post features a book I recently read and enjoyed!
About the Book
Meet Stella O’Neil, retired FBI agent Oscar O’Neil’s granddaughter. She’s got a lot on her plate, trying to figure out her crazy, stubborn family, the hidden secrets that caused her grandfather’s estrangement from her dad, and starting out as a realtor. Throw in a dead body found in what used to be the town’s “royalty” family’s manor, and she’s neck deep in a mystery.
She may be sweet, but she’s pretty stubborn herself.
As Stella’s curiosity leads her from one town resident to the next, a dramatic tale of family secrets starts to appear, but is she getting too close to the truth? A scary car chase in the dark has her nerves on edge, but she won’t give up until she finds out who the skeleton once was. She’s so close… but someone… maybe more than one person… will do anything to stop her.
A clean cozy mystery. No graphic violence, sex, or strong language.
Stella’s first assignment at Flaming Royalty has her visiting the three senior siblings who live in a creepy old mansion that needs to be readied for an Open House. They are bizarre, to say the least. When Stella discovers a skeleton in the house, she decides to investigate on her own, and as a relative newcomer, she becomes acquainted with the community and its history in the process. The pace picks up quickly with a series of suspicious incidents, and plot twists as the story unfolds. This was a very well written read, with vivid, yet concise descriptions, and memorable characters – an enjoyable page-turner that kept me up way past my bedtime.
