This book is different from her others
“Once a story starts in a small town, it’s hard to stop it and it has a life all its own. Your legacy lives forever.”
Angel Delaight, recent purchaser of the Stevens’ place in Whistle Stop, has moved her entire life packed in her revamped Airstream, into town planning to revamp her carriage house before she tackles the fairly rundown home on the property. It’s not her first time. In Chicago she worked at Delaight Construction as a carpenter in her father’s company until he sold out and retired. Now, she’s her own contractor and wants to make her home here.
Upon returning for the closing, she is trapped by a body that literally falls out of the wall and Starts her journey to find out how and why she died. While doing so, she finds out just what living in a small town means...everybody knows everybody . Question is: who killed Jerilyn? And.... has anyone really ever seen the elusive Orvis?
Julie Seedorf has found a whole new more “subdued “ village far from her other books’ settings. I have read and reviewed almost everything she has written and pounced on this when it popped in my feed. I love Angel, and her friends and family in Whistle Stop. This book isn’t as laugh out loud as her earlier work, but seems more...mature. There are still smiles for miles, but in a quiet way I enjoyed very much. Highly recommended 5/5
