Small Town Secrets and Murder

Although adopted, Sophie has no interest in finding her birth mother. She's happy with the parents she has. Then out of the blue she receives a letter from a man she's never met. He wants her to come visit him because he has something to tell her. When she arrives, the man has died, but in a surprising twist, he's left her his family home, BelleEllen. Now Sophie is curious about the reason for the legacy. As she looks into her parentage, ugly incidents start to happen around her: a man is murdered, her tires are slashed, another man goes missing. Sophie is convinced that all these things are somehow tied to her – tied to who her birth parents were.

The book starts as a typical romantic thriller. Sophie meets a handsome doctor and sparks being to fly at the same time the evil in the town rises to the surface. Personally, I found the characters stereotypical and the plot unbelievable.

On the positive side, the setting in a small Virginia town is well done. The book is a quick read. If romantic suspense is your thing, you may enjoy this book.

I reviewed this book for the Amazon Vine Program.
