"Unlocking the Truth" by Emily Thomas

About this book:

  “When an unmarked envelope arrives at the library, containing a mock-up of a newspaper article, Anne is shocked to learn that she and several of her old high school friends are implicated in a crime that took place the night of their school's homecoming. Worse, the writer threatens to expose secrets that would ruin the classmates' reputations and possibly cost them their jobs. Who wrote this tale of hijinks, and what does the instigator want from Anne and her former classmates?
  Meanwhile, Ben and Liddie are covered in a miserable poison ivy rash, and Anne must balance caring for her children and running a library with racing to unlock the truth behind the cryptic news story before it's too late.”

My personal Rating-
For some reason I was thinking I wouldn’t enjoy this mystery as much as the previous two books—silly me! Of course, I enjoyed it! I just love how clean these have been, just true mysteries with no blood or such. Perfect for those wanting to branch out in a new genre or not a fan of suspense books. :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
