Debbie De Louise – A Stones Throw

debbieBlurb: Widowed librarian Alicia Fairmont needs answers… After her husband is killed in a hit and run accident, Alicia travels upstate to his hometown of Cobble Cove, New York, hoping to locate his estranged family and shed light on his mysterious past. Anticipating staying only a weekend, her visit is extended when she accepts a job at the town’s library. Secrets stretch decades into the past… Assisted by handsome newspaper publisher and aspiring novelist, John McKinney, Alicia discovers a connection between her absent in-laws and a secret John’s father has kept for over sixty years. But her investigation is interrupted when she receives word her house has burned and arson is suspected, sending her rushing back to Long Island, accompanied by John. Back in Cobble Cove, cryptic clues are uncovered… When Alicia returns, she finds a strange diary, confiscated letters, and a digital audio device containing a recording made the day her husband was killed. Anonymous notes warn Alicia to leave town, but she can’t turn her back on the mystery—or her attraction to John. As the pieces begin to fall into place, evidence points to John’s involvement in her husband’s accident. The past and present threaten to collide, and Alicia confronts her fears… Has she fallen in love with her husband’s killer?

Review: Ali & John’s lives are intertwined from the start but the question that stretches the lento of the book is how? Why?

It seems while Cobble Cove may appear to be a small, sleepy town there is a lot going on here if you care to scratch the surface.

This book is filled with descriptions which don’t fail to make you feel like your standing in the musty old library or eating delicious home made muffins at the inn! Everything is just a ‘stones throw away’ and everyone knows everyone’s business

I found it to be one of those books that you start, you have to keep reading so you can find out who done it! With twists and turns at every corner, this one is filled with intrigue.
