Childhood friends Laura Gantt, Sean Halloran, and Cassie Bright (along with Cassie’s little sister, Tig) vowed they’d always watch out for one another. Then they grew up and two moved away. But now they’re all back in town at the same time, and they need each other—whether all three want to admit it or not.
Laura is in town for her mother’s funeral. An only child whose father drowned twelve years ago, Laura is the sole heir, responsible to settle her mother’s estate. Rumor has it, however, that her father didn’t really drown. Rather he faked his own death and went into hiding. Members of the small community in Georgia have started catching glimpses of him, insisting he’s alive and well. With the help of her friends, Laura must uncover the truth while helping Cassie discover the meaning of her own mother’s disconcerting change in behavior.
A Stillness of Chimes is a mystery that kept me guessing until the end. But it’s also a story of faithful friendship and patient love, of steadfast loyalty to those who don’t always deserve it yet receive it anyway from people who choose to care about them when given every reason to simply walk away. I appreciated this story and thank Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers for sending a complimentary copy in exchange for this honest review. Meg Moseley is an author whose books I’ve come to watch for. A Stillness of Chimes did not disappoint!
