Suspect

It’s official!  SUSPECT, my YA mystery, will be released October 1! Here’s a description from the publisher:

Seventeen-year-old Jen is scheduled to spend the summer helping Grandma Kay run the Shoenhaus, a Victorian bed and breakfast. But Grandma Kay’s plans include a lot more than housekeeping; she intends to solve a real mystery from the past involving the disappearance of a young woman.

And the victim was Jen’s own mother.

Ellen disappeared without a trace when her daughter was still young. For years, Jen received holiday gifts in the mail and letters signed by her mother. But then the communication abruptly stopped. Now Grandma Kay is convinced the letters were forged and that her daughter-in-law was murdered.

The stage is set for an elaborate Mystery Weekend. Family members and friends and even her mother s old college roommate assemble and are assigned roles to play. As the drama unfolds, Jen makes an important off-stage discovery, a diary written by her mother. Soon Jen’s worst suspicions are aroused: Could a member of her own family be responsible for her mother s disappearance?

Author Kristin Wolden Nitz has penned a satisfying story that artfully combines all the necessary elements of a great mystery: believable, well-drawn characters, a unique setting, well-laid clues, and a final rewarding solution.
