The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond
The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond | Jaime Jo Wright
8 posts | 6 read | 5 to read
For over a century, the town of Gossamer Grove has thrived on its charm and midwestern values, but Annalise Forsythe knows painful secrets, including her own, hover just beneath the pleasant fa ade. When a man is found dead in his run-down trailer home, Annalise inherits the trailer, along with the pictures, vintage obituaries, and old revival posters covering its walls. As she sorts through the collection, she's wholly unprepared for the ramifications of the dark and deadly secrets she'll uncover. A century earlier, Gossamer Grove has been stirred into chaos by the arrival of controversial and charismatic twin revivalists. The chaos takes a murderous turn when Libby Sheffield, working at her father's newspaper, receives an obituary for a reputable church deacon hours before his death. As she works with the deacon's son to unravel the mystery behind the crime, it becomes undeniably clear that a reckoning has come to town--but it isn't until another obituary arrives that they realize the true depths of the danger they've waded into. Two women, separated by a hundred years, must uncover the secrets within the borders of their own town before it's too late and they lose their future--or their very souls.

I'm visiting my daughter and son in law. While they are in the pet store I'm reading. But the real love happened at the last stop where my son in law purchased and cut this wood to be used to hang the Little Free Library that he made for me.

After a man is found dead in a run down trailer, Annalise ends up inheriting the trailer as well as photographs andvintage obituaries as well as old revival posters. Going through the collections Annalise is in no way prepared for the dark and deadly secrets she‘s about to uncover.

I went on an read the second book from Jamie Jo Wright. It's another mystery, set 100 years apart. I enjoyed it as much as the other one.

Been kinda in a reading slump. Hope I get out of it soon.

Jaime Jo Wright‘s writing is so exquisite and illustrative, I could feel the breeze off of Gossamer Pond! This skill creates a chilling tension, an ominious foreboding, as the characters of Reckoning at Gossamer Pond race to solve the mysteries wrapped into this small town‘s history. It also ensures I read her novels during daylight with my German Shepherd, Teddy. near to hand and my heart racing!

Great story! An old mystery and a modern one entwined. The author does a great job of combining characters and setting in this story of sin and redemption, forgiveness and grace.

Felt generic and average. Too many characters to keep track of. Nothing special.
