A Mother's Day Murder by Dee Ernst

A Mother's Day Murder

Mt. Abrams was the kind of small, quiet town where, as any of its residents would tell you, nothing ever happened. That was why Ellie Rocca loved living there, even if her ex-husband did not.

But even small towns had secrets, as Ellie discovered when Lacey Mitchell suddenly disappeared. Ellie caught Lacey’s husband in a lie, and one small discovery led to another until it became apparent that nothing about the Mitchell’s was quite what it seemed. 

Mother’s Day was just around the corner. With a sexy detective on the case, and Ellie and her friends getting closer to the truth, can Lacey Mitchell be found in time to enjoy the day with her sons? Or was something more deadly going on?  (summary via Goodreads)

I LOVED this novella, the first book in the new series by Dee Ernst.  You cannot help but get lost in the story, so much that you might be done with it before you know it.

 You will fall right into step with Ellie and her friends as they walk around the lake in the quaint little town of Mt. Abrams.  You will get so caught up in the story and the people that you will feel like you are right there with them as they try to find out where their neighbor Lacey went, why she would leave her two sons behind and why her husband is acting stranger than usual.

Even though this is a novella, it has a lot going on !!  It is a GREAT start to a new series you will want to follow.  Dee Ernst has a way of grabbing your interest right away and has a knack for opening the readers imagination.  I did not want to leave Mt. Abrams but I know that before long I will be back there walking with Ellie and the rest of them !!!
