About the Book

“Good characters...and a solid debut”!........ KirKus Review Fannie honestly believed she was doing the right thing by keeping a secret from her teenage daughter, Abby. However, many years later after Fannie’s death, circumstances bring Fannie back from the dead to disclose the long buried secret and to settle unresolved issues with her daughter. The secret leads to blackmail, intrigue and murder. Now Abby has a second chance with her mother. Fannie and Abby deal with the unfinished business between them with love, sarcasm and humor. When Fannie returns from the afterlife, she helps Abby save a young man, Rick, who is determined to commit suicide by plunging to his death from a bridge. Rick’s fateful encounter with Abby turns out not to be a coincidence at all. Fannie helps Abby save him from an untimely death, since Fannie knows he will be the key to unlocking the secret. Rick and Abby’s friendship leads Abby ever closer to the events from the past that created the secret in the first place and leads Rick on his own journey to rebuild his life. As events unfold, Abby anguishes that like her mother, she has kept a secret from her own children. Ultimately, Abby learns that family secrets have a way of revealing themselves and changing the lives of everyone involved.
