Publisher's Summary

Named sole heir to her aunt's estate, Charity Gannon arrives in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, hoping to find a link to her past. She's not looking for lost treasures; she is searching for a connection to the aunt she barely knew.

What she finds is a 30-something-year-old mystery and questions with no answers. A sad, secluded cottage, all but hidden amid the vines. A man's suit of clothes, tainted with dried blood and a bullet hole. Four forgotten boxes, stuffed into a large bag and buried in the far corners of the shed.

These are not just any boxes. These are unopened, undelivered boxes, left behind by the now-defunct Kingdom Parcel. All four boxes are marked March 14, 1984 - the very day her uncle, president and driver for the delivery service, was said to have committed suicide. Four forgotten boxes, whose owners might still be out there, waiting for a delivery that never arrived. The undelivered boxes haunt Charity, tugging at her conscience. Hadn't someone noticed them missing?

As Charity sets out to deliver the packages to their rightful owners, she discovers that the story behind one box is delightful. Another is heartbreaking. And one might very well be the death of her.

completely Luke warm, predictable, lame

I laughed AT the book. it was ABSOLUTELY predictable, amateur-level, like a sappy novel for a high school girl. Corny. the only good thing is you can listen while doing other tasks that take a lot of concentration, because this story line takes none. a serious disappointment after reading so many excellent books in a row.

What a hoot!

I haven't listened to a romance mystery in ages. I kept smiling during all the instant chemistry moments. To it iS entertaining!! The breathy narrator was a bit distracting but not insurmountable. Enjoy!

weak plot and flat characters

The plot and characters were not deep enough, they were too simple and predictable. Also, the writing style was a bit too flamboyant for my taste - loss some of the metaphors.

More of a romance novel than mystery or suspense.

I like a stronger character. This was too much damsel in distress. I can't see reading another book by this author. For me personally, I just didnt enjoy it.

weak

Predictable. The characters are unbelievable at best with no depth. The narrator was flat and had no charm.
