The Victims . . .
When pregnant Saffron Cutler moves into 9 Skelton Place with boyfriend Tom and sets about renovations, the last thing she expects is builders uncovering human remains. The remains of two bodies, in fact.
The Investigation . . .
Forensics indicate the bodies have been buried at least thirty years. Saffy has nothing to worry about—until the police launch a murder inquiry and ask to speak to the cottage’s former owner. Her grandmother, Rose.
The Witness . . .
Rose is in a nursing home and Alzheimer’s means her memory is increasingly confused. She can’t help the police, but its’ clear she remembers something.
The Killer . . .
As Rose’s fragmented memories resurface, and the police dig ever deeper, Saffy fears she and the cottage are being watched.
The Truth . . .
What happened thirty years ago? Why did no one miss the victims? What part did her grandmother play? And is Saffy now in danger?

I loved this story right from page one. Sometimes a book just resonates with you and that was this book. I liked that it was told in both past and present time and through the voices of the five main characters. I changed my mind several times on whose story this actually was and in the end I believe that it was all of their story. I will be looking for more Claire Douglass books.

I really enjoyed this mystery. Not too heavy, not light - plausible enough and very realistic. Tom and Saffy are renovating a house that she inherited from her mother and grandmother and the builders find a dead body in the back yard. Then the police find another one. The murders seemed to have happened while Saffy's grandmother was living in the house in the 70's but her grandmother now has dementia so getting the details from her is difficult.

It's as much about the mystery as it is about the relationships between mothers and daughters; difficult, confusing and conflicting - but love (eventually) overrides all that in this novel.

Oh, and they solve the mystery!
