The Book Barn series fourth installment deals with several topics these include literary drives for the foster system, domestic violence, dysfunction families and their secrets and assisted living homes.
Charli Rae Warren is working on a book drive to collect books for the state foster system when the coordinator of the drive is stabbed to death. Evidence shows that victim was being abused by her live-in boyfriend. As Charli seems to connect with the state welfare system she finds another woman and her children being controlled by her husband. Her Dad is acting strange and refused to tell Charli what he is worried about. She decided to make more visits to an elderly friend who is in an Assisted living home. Charli explores the evidence and her world suddenly shifts. The ending will shock and please you. It did me. Looking forward to Charli next adventure, it is sure to be good. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and series. Disclosure: Many thanks to Lyrical Underground for a review copy. The opinions expressed are my own.
