SPEAK NO EVIL
TANYA ANNE CROSBY
Review by Author Roy Murry
Flo, a wealthy socialite newspaper heiress, dies supposedly falling a flight of stairs. She leaves a will in which her three daughters must complete specific tasks while living together in the family mansion for one year to receive their inheritance.
The eldest daughter must manage the newspaper; the middle daughter is to renovate the house, and the youngest is to write a novel. Neither wants the jobs needed to full fill the mother's will.
However, if one fails, no one gets the money. Let the games begin. The women must work harmoniously or fail.
Interwoven into the above scenario is a love story, a serial killer, and the Charleston wetlands that have a secret to unravel. All collide into a thrilling story, ending in a flame.
Ms. Crosby does hook the reader in because many questions are left open after an ending event that would have nullified the beginning circumstance. Well worth the read - easy flowing, good characters, and twist and turns that keep the reader engaged.
