Nancy Drew has competition, Lynne Garrett is in town. In a well constructed tale, a young woman learns how to deal with her amputation and how to rely on herself. On a vacation she becomes involved in a mystery that, in fact, is related to her. Mary Jean reveals the mystery layer by layer. The author has created a role model for young women everywhere. I enjoyed this story and found it easy to identify with the heroine. I look forward to other books from this talented author.

Ms. Kelso has written a very intense story. She weaves action with a great plot leaving the reader mesmerized until the dramatic conclusion. This story keeps one guessing until the last page. Ms. Kelso made the characters very believable all the way down to their expressions as well as the whole setting of the story.

Skeletons Too Close To Home
This book contains a lot of interesting characters and unforeseen plot twists. The bad guys really gave me goose bumps. It also gives the reader a little bit of Virginia City history, but it is written so well into the story that you don‘t even realize your learning until you put the book down. Lynne Garrett is an excellent role model, she doesn’t let her disability stop her from pursuing whatever it is she feels needs to be done. When you have finished reading this book you can find more of Lynne’s adventures in Abducted and Sierra Summer.
