Riassunto: Abigail Sutton's beloved husband walks out one night and two years later is found dead. Starting a new life, Abigail moves to a small town and buys a fixer-upper house left empty when old Edna Summers died. At one time, it was home to Edna's younger sister, Emily, and two children, Jenny and Christopher. Emily and her children are rumored to have driven away one night...thirty years ago.
But in renovating her house, Abigail finds scraps of paper hidden behind baseboards and tucked beneath the porch that hint they were victims of foul play.
Then she finds their graves hidden in the woods behind the house. With the help of eccentric townspeople and ex-homicide detective, Frank Lester, she discovers the three were murdered. She and Frank not only uncover who killed them and why...but in the process awaken the ire of the murderer.
From the Author:
The Story of Scraps of Paper, All Things Slip Away & Ghosts Beneath Us
I originally began writing this Spookie Town Murder Mystery series, set in a quirky little town I called Spookie (a tip of my hat to my horror roots) around 2002. I'd written the first book, Scraps of Paper and in 2006 the second I called All Things Slip Away for Avalon Books as hardcovers. But it took me another 9 years to write and put out the third, Ghosts Beneath Us. Life, as it always does, got in the way-and I was writing my award winning Dinosaur Lake series and overseeing the production of twenty audio books. By then I'd left the legacy publishers far behind and was self-publishing all my books. I still am.
Scraps of Paper is about an artist named Abigail Sutton, whose husband has been missing for two years, and who's just learned he's been dead all that time-a victim of a gone-wrong mugging. She begins a new life and moves to a small town full of fog, quirky townspeople and mysteries. And right away she's drawn into one of her own when she buys, renovates, a fixer-upper house and uncovers hidden in it scraps of paper written by two young children who once lived there with their mother, and who supposedly drove away thirty years before and were never seen again. The town thought they simply went somewhere else; began a new life. But Abigail suspects they never left the house; suspects they'd been murdered. She finds three graves in the back. Of course, with her history of a missing husband she develops the overpowering urge to find out what happened to them. The scraps of paper she continues to find makes the bond, the desire, stronger. She forms a friendship with an ex-homicide cop, Frank, and together they solve the mystery. Only thing is there's someone still living in the town that just as desperately doesn't want them to; someone who'd kill to keep the murderer's identity secret. The next two books are the continuation of Abigail and Frank's sleuthing adventures, their blossoming romance and about the eccentric, lovable people who live in Spookie.
All Things Slip Away zeroes in more on Frank, the ex-homicide detective, as a serial killer from his past threatens their peaceful town of Spookie and both their lives.
Ghosts Beneath Us about the old people in town supposedly being haunted and killed off by...ghosts.
All three are now in paperback and in audio books.
