Publisher Description

Murder and political intrigue shatter a peaceful retreat.

Michele retreats to the country while her teens are away for the summer, to write the memoirs of her elderly neighbor, Gidget - a reclusive former Houston art gallery owner - and learn how to be alone in the wake of her husband’s death. But when Gidget dies unexpectedly, she leaves everything to Michele except a bequest to a daughter no one knew existed. Suddenly, Michele's country quiet is shattered, and half of Texas shows up: some to help, some to contest the will, and others to make sure the mystery daughter is never found alive.

Trudy Lynn ,

Another great mystery with lots of intrigue!

Michele is still learning how to live without her husband and now her children are getting ready to leave the nest, at least for the Summer in Sam’s case. Nothing is easy for her, not even retreating to the country home site her husband bought for their anniversary before his death. When a dog comes running at Michele and the kids their life will change forever once again!

A new mystery and intrigued are quickly throwing a monkey wrench on Michele’s plans for the Summer. She gets no time alone and some hair raising moments in this latest installation of series!

I always love the various characters, personalities, beliefs, etc. of Pamela’s characters and this book has a ton of my favorites! I actually started reading Pamela’s books with Live Wire and Maggie so it was great seeing her from before her stories begin.

I really loved this story and can’t wait for the next one!
