THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
The first in a new series and new author for me. The story starts out with a lot of action but the narrative did not flow smoothly making difficult to follow at times. The number of characters introduced made it hard to follow the main line and needed more development. A lot of time was spent on the backstory. At one time I felt for the MC because of all the negative events that were occurring around her. There were things that occurred that I question. After the death of finance and Father, Addie Greyborne learned that unknown aunt has died and left her estate. Addie moved to the small coastal town where she learned that the town was named after her relatives. She discovered a number of rare books as more than enough books to open a bookstore. The first day she is open events occur causing her problems. Eddie made a friend and an enemy that day.. A bank official is a murder and her friend is accused of his murder. The story takes a major turn here and several unpleasant incidents occur before Addie's life is close to normal again. Addie needs answers before she joins her boyfriend and Father in death. I recommend this book. Disclosure: Many thanks to Kensington Books for a review copy. The opinions expressed are my own.
