A cold case update in Salem, Massachusetts . . .
Life at the house on Winter Street is abuzz with preparations for Aunt Ibby’s 45th high school reunion, and Lee Barrett is happy to pitch in, tracking down addresses and licking envelopes. But as a field reporter for Salem’s WICH-TV, her priority is to be on top of the town’s latest news before anyone else.
When the local police dredge up a vintage sports car containing human remains, Lee is thrilled to be the first reporter on the scene. Once she learns the car is connected to the cold case her boyfriend Pete happens to be working on, her powers of investigation are  
quickly alerted. But it’s her Aunt Ibby’s emotional reaction to Lee’s TV report that puts 
her on the case. With the help of O’Ryan, her psychic feline sidekick, she’ll have to unravel a tangled past of secrets and promises to stop a killer from making history again . .

What I Thought:

I have not read any in this series before, but I was hooked with this one.  I found the plot intriguing and the storyline very easy to follow.  Lee is the main character and it is her Aunt Ibby's 45th class reunion.  When Lee and her camera woman think the are onto a hot lead when they see the police at the local quarry.  They have found a mustang with human remains.  The remains are part of a cold case that Lee's boyfriend is working on.  I found this book hard to put down as I really wanted to find out what happened and what caused these remains to be in this car.  I thought the story was well written.  I enjoyed the characters and how well they got along.  I enjoyed the mystery the most though and was left guessing on this one. I will definitely be reading more in this series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.

bout the Author

Carol J. Perry knew as a child that she wanted to be a writer. A voracious reader, whose list for Santa consisted mostly of book titles, she never lost sight of that goal. While living in Florida, Carol was on assignment for Southern Travel Magazine, preparing an article on the world’s largest sand castle which was being built near her home. That combination of events inspired her first young adult novel, Sand Castle Summer. That book was soon followed by half a dozen more.
Carol has always been an avid reader of mysteries. Her debut mystery novel is set in Salem and involves O’Ryan, a most mysterious cat, several witches and some strange Halloween happenings. Appropriately enough, this Salem-born author celebrates her birthday on Halloween Eve! Carol and her husband Dan live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida with two cats and a Black Lab. Visit her at
