Blind Date with a Book 2018 Comment: "the first sentence on the wrapping was NOT the actual first sentence. However I was hooked and read the first 50 pages without stopping."

Sam''s mother has committed suicide by dropping her radio in the tub while she was bathing in an unlocked remote Cornish cottage. Only thing was she wasn''t depressed, she had just bought groceries, and was looking forward to Sam visiting her. Only thing is, Sam''s mother had written a very telling poem that points the finger at a concealed murderer. Was she murdered because of the poem? Sam is determined to find out despite the threats that start to come her way as she gets nearer the truth. Having never read Joanna Hines before, I was very happy to see that she has written several books and look forward to reading more.
