Twenty-Five Years Ago Today is about a young woman, Kris Langley, who is troubled by her past. When she was twelve years old, her cousin was murdered. Kris feels responsible for the death and cannot get past it. After an attempt to run from the memories plaguing her, she comes back to her home town and begins a job as an editorial assistant for the local newspaper. Due to her chronic insomnia problems, she is happy to find a position where she can work a later shift. Initially, her duties are less than exciting. The closest she gets to news is obituaries and wedding announcements. Yet there is one other assignment she must complete daily, a report on what occurred each day twenty-five years ago. This requires pouring through old headlines from long ago to find interesting events. That is when she runs across an old article about a woman's unsolved murder. Kris finds it horrible that the crime has never been solved after such a long time and takes it upon herself to look into the case.

Of course, solving a mystery of such long standing that has left the police baffled will not be easy. She has no previous experience with investigative reporting and her boss would never agree to such an adventure. This means Kris must quickly gain the skills needed, question the family and witnesses, and do it without the newspaper finding out before she solves the crime. Along the way, she meets an attractive man, Eric, who is a nephew of the deceased woman. He doesn't like Kris sticking her nose into matters best left in the past, but neither of them can deny the attraction they feel toward each other. It is just one more surprise, in a string of many, which will leave the reader wondering how things will turn out.

An entertaining murder mystery with a twist of romance. Twenty-something Kris Langley is an editorial assistant with the local newspaper, primarily writing obits and providing short snippets for the Twenty-Five Years Ago Today column. She wants to be more involved in writing stories for the paper, and resents her colleagues who have no scruples and yet are praised for their work at the newspaper. When Kris comes across a story about a local girl, Diana Ferguson, who was murdered 25 years ago, she feels a need to investigate. Kris's own cousin was murdered when they were just children and Kris has always blamed herself. If she solves Diana's case, bringing the killer to justice, would it help to ease her guilt over her cousin's murder? We follow Kris's investigation, as she finds the people who knew Diana, and interviews them. When she meets Eric Soares, Diana's nephew, a romance blossoms despite Kris's attempts to keep him at a distance.
I found Stacy Juba's writing style compulsive, and the action was fast-paced and realistic. The psychological aspects to the story were well thought out and true-to-life. I particularly liked the depiction of the competitive behaviour of the staff at the newsroom.
'Twenty-Five Years Ago Today' is so much more than just a murder mystery. It deals with many emotional subject areas which everyone will be able to relate to, including family relationships, guilt, forgiveness, secrets, bereavement, trust; all woven into this intriguing tale of a long-forgotten crime.
I loved the way all the action in the present day related in some way to the past, almost as if the characters had all been trapped back in time to some extent because of events that had changed their lives.

My first impression was - The book gets straight to the point by mentioning that it will be twenty-five years since Diana Ferguson has died. Of course, my automatic mental reaction is to leap ahead, I want to know what happened and how Kris is connected to Diana. In the introduction of the characters in the newsroom, you are also made aware of ethics versus newspaper sales, no longer a new debate.

As I got to the middle, I felt - I am immersed in Diana's story. The narrative is generally smooth. However, some scene settings were too detailed. Yellow pound cake. Cutting a slice. Eating the cake. Whether Kris ate the cake or not and how she cut it, it would have made no difference to the story. Moving on, I liked the build up as Kris and Eric talk. Despite the awkwardness of their relationship, their emotions are laid bare which gives the story fullness.

As I neared the end, I thought - Love, secrets and family. Sometimes this is a deadly combination. One lie to cover another and the person who murdered Diana was the least suspected of all. What I also did not expect was the disintegration of relationships in the matter of a few pages. What I really liked as I reached the end is that once the murderer was revealed, the remaining bits of the story were told in the form of news articles. Unique.

My final impression and recommendations - This was a wonderful reading experience I would recommend to others. Compelling plot filled with twists and turns combined with complex characters. Despite the layers of mystery, Stacy Juba includes romance, marriage and family issues. Loyalty and betrayal are a big part of this book but that's as far as I will go before I dish out any spoilers.
