Nowhere to be Found, by Emily Thomas....a review


While converting the Victorian home left by her great-aunt Edie into a library, Anne Gibson stumbles upon a fascinating find. Hidden behind an old star quilt is a tiny sealed-off room with a small writing desk and a faded photograph of Edie in a wedding gown. Anne is certain Aunt Edie never married, so who is the handsome young man with her in the photograph? Could he still hold claim to the house bequeathed to Anne? 

As Anne sets out to solve the mystery, she makes delightful new friends and runs into old ones - including a high school sweetheart who might not be happy that the woman who broke his heart is back in town.


Nowhere to be Found by Emily Thomas is the first book in the Blue Hill Library series.   These are faith based "cozy" mysteries, that share the story of Anne Gibson as she relocates her children and self to Blue Hill, Pennsylvania.    Anne's husband had died unexpectedly of a massive heart attack and her Aunt Edie had left her Victorian home to Anne with instructions to convert it into a town library including living quarters for Anne and her children.

There are many interesting neighbors and friends who become important to Anne and her family as they undertake the remodeling and Anne faces many challenges as she deals with the quirky personalities.   Not only is she overseeing the  refurbishing, she finds a secret room in the house with a picture of her aunt that piques her curiousity and becomes a mystery to be solved.

This is the kind of book I enjoy reading and it relaxes my spirit.   I love all books and genres, but some of the psychological thrillers and suspense reads send me in search of something to bring me down and comfort my fast beating heart.   So I am happy to have found these cozy books sponsored by Guideposts.

I rated this book a 4 wink story.
