Miranda Miller thought she had her life together. She enjoys her job as an art restorer. She's married to a nice guy with a great 5 year old daughter. She's living life in the fast lane in New York City and loving it.
But all that changes on day. First, a man comes in with a painting he wants restored. Yet he seems more interested in a strange symbol on it then the painting itself. Then she is attacked while walking to meet her aunt for lunch. Yet the men leave her alone after examining her scalp.
As if that weren't strange enough, Miranda's Aunt Janet tells her that Willy Pedreaux wants to see her before he dies. Willy was the caretaker of Miranda's grandparent's estate in Louisiana. But Miranda hasn't been there since her mother died when Miranda was 5 years old. What secret could Willy possibly have to tell her? And will going back dredge up all kind of painful memories?
Mindy Starns Clark has quickly become a favorite author, so I was looking forward to reading this stand alone novel. It started out strong with plenty of questions, but then it stalled for about 100 pages or so. Fortunately, things picked up and the book became a race to the end. The characters were real right from page one, which helped me maintain my interest the whole way through. While a Christian novel, the Christianity wasn't as prevalent as normal. However, I found that plot thread believable and just right for this particular novel.
Overall, I did enjoy this novel. It is sure to please the author's many fans and anyone looking for a good mystery.
