Book Review: Family Secrets by Shawn McGuire

 For this review, I chose Family Secrets by Shawn McGuire.

I picked this e-book from the selection of Kindle Unlimited books.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Alternate cover edition of ASIN B0711FGPJM

Welcome to Whispering Pines, Wisconsin. A place for those who don’t belong.

Sixteen years after a family feud drove her from the cozy Northwoods village of Whispering Pines, Wisconsin, former detective Jayne O’Shea returns to prepare her grandparents’ lake house for sale. Once there, not only does she find that the house has been trashed, her dog discovers a dead body in the backyard.

Jayne intends to stay out of it, but when it becomes obvious the sheriff isn't interested in investigating the death, Jayne can't stop herself. Her list of suspects grows faster than the plants in the commons’ pentacle garden. Could it be the local Wiccan green witch with her stash of deadly plants? The shopkeeper who slips into trances and foretells death? The visitor determined to practice black magic?

What Jayne knows for sure is that the closer she gets to solving this crime, the more the sheriff wants her to back off. And when a local fortune teller provides a crucial clue, Jayne knows it’s up to her to solve this murder. (less)

This is book #1 in the Whispering Pines Mystery series.  This book is set in Whispering Pines, Wisconsin.  A small strange town with practicing Wiccans.  Jayne is to get her grandparents’ home ready to sale. She feels so relaxed and at home. Suspense and murder. I will be reading the next book in this series.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
