Synopsis: Minneapolis attorney inherits a small California winery, reawakening memories that have lain dormant for twenty years. One summer of her childhood is a mystery she intends to solve. But digging up her past also lays bare the skeletons of others, including her mother’s. Entangled between what she once believed and a new reality, will she be able to live with the consequences of full disclosure?
I very much enjoyed this mystery. It was easy to engage with the main protagonist. Ms. Brink has written a well-rounded and likable character. You find yourself taking the journey alongside her, which is the mark of a well-written piece of fiction. The world Ms. Brink invites you to visit is realistic and completely believable. I don’t want to say too much about this story, because the mystery is such an important part of it and I don’t want to ruin it for you. What I will say is if you like a good mystery, you’ll really enjoy this one, and I highly recommend it.
