The Family Secret by Terry Lynn Thomas

Cat and Annie moved out of London to avoid the bombing and best of all moved to Cat's childhood home town and to be with Thomas.

Even better was that Cat moved into her childhood home.  The description of the home is envious...a sweeping staircase was enough to immediately capture my interest.

Along with all the wonderful welcomes, an unwelcome request by her friend Beth was something Cat had to deal with.

Beth asked that Cat help her solve her aunt’s murder. The police think Beth murdered her aunt for the inheritance.

We follow Cat and all of the characters as their lives intertwine around family matters and this murder.

Cat was lovable, Carmona was spoiled, her mother Claris was insufferable.

Thomas was very lovable, and I had hopes he and Cat would get together as they worked on finding the murderer.

This was my first book by Ms. Thomas, and I enjoyed the story line and her writing style.

Readers who enjoy old houses, secrets, murders to solve, a few untrustworthy characters, and plenty of likable characters will enjoy THE FAMILY SECRET.  5/5

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
