Book Summary: After a youth filled with tragedy and upheaval, Sarah Miller's life is finally settled with all echoes of the past silent at last. She happily calls Sanctuary her home and spends her days teaching at the local school. Sarah's joy at her recent reunion with her sister, Hannah, and meeting the niece she didn't know she had is too soon interrupted when Deputy Sheriff Paul Gleason informs Sarah her sister has been killed. As she learns more about Hannah's death, the circumstances are eerily similar to their parents' murder. Sarah enlists Paul's help in digging deeper into the murders the police are dismissing as burglaries gone wrong. Paul's concern encourages Sarah's growing feelings for him, but as their investigation peels back the layers of lies almost twenty years old, they get close to uncovering the truth one person will do anything to hide--even if that means coming after the last remaining members of the Miller family.
Review: Great sequel!! I loved the sense of community that Nancy Mehl creates in her stories. I loved Janet, Paul and Cicely. They mad the story line. I think that Sarah started out weak. It was great to see the character grow. I was hooked from the start. The murder of Hannah and how this murder was linked to the girls past. There were some surprises that I did not see coming and that made this story unique. I liked that most of all. It was a dawning of realizing and tying together the letter that Hannah sent Sarah and the unraveling of this mystery. Thanks Nancy Mehl for another great suspense novel.
I would like to thank NetGalley and Bethany House for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
