Laura is an investigative reporter who is helping a young man to investigate a sixty-seven-year-old crime. In the small town of Greenview, a skeleton has been discovered under an old hotel. Laura is surprised to find that this mystery has ties to her mother’s childhood and she is determined to find out the answers to who the body is and if it is possibly somehow related to her. Laura has lost her husband and her mother and is going on vacation with her children to keep alive the family vacation tradition and take some time away from the case. Catherine Preston is a very rich old woman who lives next door to the house Laura has rented. She lost her young daughter many years ago in a boat explosion, along with her husband. After sixty plus years, Catherine is still grieving and hoping that her daughter might miraculously show up. She has a greedy step-grandson doing everything in his power to have his name put on the will to inherit her fortune.
Letters from Greenview has suspense, surprises, and spans years of questions without answers. I found this story to be an easy read with a good plot and interesting characters; it's a perfect book for an afternoon by the pool. There are twists and turns, murders and deaths before all of the answers that both women are looking for become clear. Margaret Groh has written a suspenseful and entertaining story and I look forward to reading more of her books. I believe that Letters from Greenview has all the qualifications to be a great book and has much potential to become a made for TV movie.
