Mattie Gokey has big dreams of one day going to college, but little chance of realizing them. She has to stay behind and protect her sisters and entire family from financial ruin. Desperate for money, she takes at the Glenmore, a hotel for high class people vacationing nearby. There, hotel guest Grace Brown entrusts her with a packet of letters to burn for her. But when Grace’s drowned body is discovered in the lake, Mattie realizes the letters could reveal the dark truth behind a murder.

This book was confusing. It switched between the backstory to the present which made it hard to figure which year it was, but aside from that it was a well-written book. There is very adult subject matter so be warned!

I would recommend this book to people who love murder-mysteries and a good romance.
