There's more than one secret in the old Blackmoore house. Some have been buried for a long time and some are sitting closer to the surface.
Morgan and Fiona Blackmoore enjoy their simple life in the sleepy ocean-side town of Noquitt Maine where they offer herbal remedies and crystal healing for locals and tourists alike.
...Until Morgan is accused of killing the town shrew, Prudence Littlefield.
Suddenly the girls find themselves scrambling to find the real killer while they battle a crooked Sheriff, planted evidence, and a long list of suspects that all had a reason to want Prudence dead.
Handsome Jake Cooper is new to the Noquitt Maine police force, which is exactly why Fiona Blackmoore doesn't trust him. But with time running out and the evidence against her sister piling up, Fiona has to make a choice - will she trust Jake with her sister's case...and her own heart?
Add in an old mansion on the cliffs of Maine, an attic full of mysterious treasures, and a cat that has the uncanny ability to show up at exactly the right time and Fiona has her hands full proving the Sheriff's accusations about her sister being a murderer are Dead Wrong.
This is book 1 in the Blackmoore Sisters Cozy Mystery Series.

I know these books are fictional but for heaven sake give the reader a mediocre of brains! Top detective from Boston? Really. Very poor shame because the content is there just not story.
Nice little cozy. A bit simplistic, not all the characters were well developed. It was very short, maybe if there were a few more pages, a bit more character development, it would have rated higher. What was there was good.
Interesting story, lots of twists and turns. A light hearted murder mystery. Easy to listen to.
"not to bad"
At first I was irratated with the story, there was no way the prime suspect could have done it. But we found out at the end of the story why she was considered a suspect.
Overall: not bad and entertaining
Not a paranormal mystery. The cat is a little mysterious and that's about it. Otherwise it's just another who done it love story. I'm assuming that if you read further into the series, that the cat is really the girls dead mother or the like, but this first book is a bit of a let down that doesn't leave you searching for more.
"Great story as always from Ms Dobbs enjoyable..great"
Very good read, enjoying the whole series. Started with the audio, now enjoying the ebooks
"A Great dissapointment"
A sure return, the narrator distroyed it for me so I could not stand to listen to the end, sorry
"Not engaging and narrator kind of gasps"
Narrator gasps and inhales sharply. Characters and story not interesting or engaging. Do not recommend.
"light. relaxing read"
Typical Dobbds. Provides an easy, relaxing funread. Take it on vacation! Having it in audio is great.
Loving this story! It was great listening while I was moving.The narration is great great.
"Another great cozy mystery"
I enjoyed this book. Leighann Dobbs did a nice job creating the characters for this new (to me) series. I thoroughly enjoyed her Mystic Notch series and thought I'd give this one a try. I was not disappointed, as I've enjoyed this one too. I believe Hollis McCarthy has the best voice possible to bring these characters to life. If you're a fan of nice cozy mysteries then I highly recommend this book.
