A Family Concern

240 pages3 hours


In this “surefire hit” mystery, a journalist uncovers the secrets of a prominent local family—secrets that might destroy an old friend’s life (Booklist).
Journalist and amateur sleuth Rona Parish is eager for a fresh challenge, so she begins to research the histories of several long-established families in town, including the Tarltons, long-time owners of the Clarendon Hotel. But a chance encounter with old friend Kate lands Rona in the midst of another case.
Kate, now married to a Tarlton, asks Rona for her help with a delicate family problem: determining the cause of her sister-in-law Freya’s terrifying nightmares. But as Rona begins to uncover disturbing facts about the Tarltons’ past, she wonders whether solving the mystery of Freya’s nightmares might destroy the family.
A Family Concern is the fourth book in the Rona Parish Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
“Smooth writing style, inventive plotting, and insights into family life . . . For readers who like to mix cozy mysteries with gentle women’s fiction.” —Booklist
