The New York Times bestselling author of Dying for a Cupcake returns with a new mystery filled with lost family, hidden treasure, and long-buried secrets...

Five-and-dime store owner Devereaux "Dev" Sinclair moved to Shadow Bend for her family. But when her long-lost mother shows up in town, she realizes too much kin can be killer...

Shadow Bend's library closed years ago because of budgetary problems, so when a wealthy benefactor offers to reopen it, everyone, including Dev, is thrilled. But Dev's excitement wanes when she realizes the mysterious donor is actually her runaway mother Yvette's latest husband, Jett Benedict.

Dev suspects that Yvette and Jett's intentions aren't as noble as they appear, but before she can discover what they're really up to, Jett turns up dead--and all clues point to Yvette as the prime suspect.

Even though Dev has no loyalty to Yvette, she's in a bind. Setting the record straight could prove her mother is a killer. But doing nothing might get her mother booked for a crime she didn't commit...

Not as good as the author's other series. I gave up without finishing this book.

This book introduces Dev's stepfather briefly and more about her family's dynamics. While I enjoy Denise's books, the UFO sightings seemed a bit added versus really a part of the story but needed to explain who the murderer is. I would also like Dev to decide on which man she's interested in because the struggle between the two men and her decision seems to be going on long enough.
