Review: Rachel Howdle

New mystery from the pen of international bestselling novelist Diane Chamberlain. High school counsellor Riley MacPherson has a lot on her plate.

Out of town to settle her late father’s estate, she accidentally uncovers a deep dark family secret that is linked to her sister, Lisa, who committed suicide when Riley was just a toddler.

As the will is read, Riley finds out that her father knew more about things than he let on, leading her to ask questions about her childhood to war veteran brother Danny and tenants on her father’s RV park.

What happened all that time ago? Does anyone know the truth? Riley pulls out all the stops to find out what happened to the sister that she never knew.

Diane Chamberlain has weaved a tale spanning two generations full of twists, turns and surprises. One thing is certain: Riley and Danny’s lives will never be the same again.
