Publisher's Summary

Any risk is worth taking when you have this much to lose.
 

Estate sale organizer Audrey Nealon combines business with pleasure as she plans a sale at the exquisite beach home of the Gardner family. But the romantic getaway weekend with her husband is shattered when the body of a teenage boy washes up on the sand.
 

The death soon proves to be more than an unpleasant distraction from Audrey’s work. Sophia, the troubled young woman who lives next door to the Gardners, is wracked with guilt over the death of her friend. When Audrey rescues Sophia from a rash action, she is pulled into the vortex of lies and cover-ups swirling through the exclusive community of Sea Chapel, NJ. Where should Audrey place her trust - with the client who hired her or with the melodramatic Sophia, who reminds her of her teenage self.
 

Someone in this enclave knows how and why the boy died, but these families will close ranks to protect their own.
 

And they won’t hesitate to destroy an outsider like Audrey who threatens their way of life.
 

Audrey’s curiosity and compassion pull her into danger. Will her wit and determination be enough to restore justice? Or has Audrey met her match in this killer who has everything to lose?
 

Plot twists and lovable, believable characters are what keep listeners coming back for more adventures in the Palmyrton Estate Sale Mystery Series. Start now and listen all night!

Definitely a Twisty Mystery

This is absolutely a slice of life. Grandpa's broken hip, coworkers issues, demanding deadlines, health issues and let's throw in a murder to boot on a rich ocean side community.
I really liked all the characters. I know them even if I've never been to New Jersey or know muscle like Ray Ray. Janelle Tedesco did a fine job narrating and voicing.
This book is part of a series and I read it as a stand alone book and it was fine. However I'm going to have to read book 1 to know what the deal was with Audreys mom.
Feel very comfortable recommending it. Mild violence, family planning discussions, suicide.

Loved it!

I really enjoy a good mystery, and this one kept me guessing until the very end. I also really like all the subplots that tie the series together. The growth of the secondary characters ,Ty and Donna, is very apparent: realistically gradual. I love all of the different voices and accents the narrator managed to pull off without sounding fake. All in all, I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a decent mystery.

Another great Treasure

There are few mystery series I thoroughly enjoy and haven’t found fault with so far, and the Palmyrton Estate Sale Mystery series is one of them.

Although it has been a while since last I was in Palmyrton (virtually, of course), I immediately reconnected with Audrey and her crew, and with the latest addition of her husband and his large family.

Like in the previous books, all the characters are very believable, as are their trials and tribulations.

The book is rich in small details (like the aftermath of a huge storm), which adds to its authenticity.

The problems not related to the actual sale are of a kind most people have some knowledge about, but only those concerned really think about–at least I had never given it any thought.

The twists and turns the story takes are great, and in the end, it all somehow interlocks, showing Audrey where she definitely doesn’t want to go.

I was very happy that Janelle Tedesco found the time in her tight schedule to narrate this audio book. As usual, she did a fantastic job! Her character voices are very easy to differentiate, you always know exactly who is talking. As the cast of characters is large, this is no mean feat, especially since she manages to give all known characters the voices the listener is used to from the previous books.

The combination of S.W. Hubbard’s brilliant writing and Janelle Tedesco’s fantastic narration is something nobody should miss out on!

A Murder With A Huge Twist.

This is a very enjoyable listen. The characters are well thought out and developed. Our central character, Audrey, is wonderful, having to cope with her own life decisions as the crime mystery develops. The writing is excellent with a brilliant plot. I didn't see the conclusion coming, a surprise but very well executed. The narration is first class adding to the atmosphere and pleasure. Highly recommended.
