Daisy Savage finally has everything she wants. A new husband. A bunch of kids. A charming old house.

What she doesn't want is a dead body.

When a frozen pipe in the basement of her century-old home leads her and her husband downstairs into a newly discovered crawl space, they find a coal chute they didn't know they had. And a corpse inside of it.

Things become complicated when Daisy realizes she knew the victim. And things get even worse when it becomes increasingly clear that the body was placed there to make Daisy look like the killer.

Against her husband's advice and her own common sense, Daisy makes it her mission to prove to the denizens of Moose River that she is innocent. But doing so may be more dangerous than she planned.

    This is the first book I have read by Jeff Shelby. I liked the story setting in a small town; the principals as dealing with all the issues of a newly-formed mixed family; and the townsfolk ever- spreading opinions through its grapevine! The murder plot was nicely intricate, leaving a lot of details to be exposed in the course of reading. Yet, there was also the needed levity to keep the many personal interactions from being too antagonistic Missing - A natural detail that was not necessary to reveal at first, but ought to have been stated sometime = the authorities never shared what was the cause of death. Included - A good manner of expressing husband/wife interactions on many levels - a talent lacking in some male writers. I am looking forward to reading more books from the author. Paul T.
  • A quick, fun read

    It was great for my preference: some suspense, but not scary. Good plot and fun enough to hold my interest for an afternoon. The author did get hung up in a lot of immaterial details, and lacked detail when it was actually warranted. A large handful of obvious typos wore on my patience a bit. And, it was painfully obvious it was written by a man attempting to illustrate from a female perspective. It could easily be a five star book with skilled editing.

    This was an entertaining book and I enjoyed reading it but I can not understand why the author put down the church and let it be known that homosexual relations were fine for teens. The values on home schooling were good, but most moms who homeschool would be irritated by these references, so why mess up a good. Ok by putting them in?
