Mysterious small town murders in Missouri. A stranger brought to the town by a package originating there. Will she find the answers she’s searching for?
Lauryn manages the family estate auction house business, now that her dad is failing due to Alzheimer’s. An only child, she struggles with his care and downward spiral. The current estate causes a town tangle, the likes of which have never been seen before.
As Lauryn sends the package, she has no idea what is being unleashed. Is the package connected to the recent murders in Abbey Hills? What troubles lurk, should the package recipient come to town, looking for answers?
At first blush, the previews of this book read like a classic murder-mystery. By page 13, I had figured out that nothing could be further from the truth! What a thrill it was to have something completely unexpected crop up in what I thought was going to be a routine who-done-it read.
Not having read any of the author’s previous thirty books, I didn’t have a clue what I was getting into. I make it a policy not to read reviews of other books written by authors I am reading for the first time, nor do I research an author before reading. I’m intrigued now, and will make a note to read other books by Tracey Bateman when I get the chance.
If you have an open mind and like books that aren’t run-of-the-mill and have plots with major, interesting twists, this book is right up your alley. If you prefer straight, literal reality-based stories and shy away from the funky, Tandem may not be one to put on your list of must-reads. As a book-of-all-kinds lover, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I give it 5 stars out of 5.
