Bringing Maggie Home

Kim Vogel Sawyer's latest novel is entitled Bringing Maggie Home. This tale begins with Hazel DeFord and her little sister, Maggie heading off to pick blackberries for their mother to use to make a pie for their father.  Hazel turns her back on Maggie for a moment; unfortunately, when she looks back, her little sister is missing!

Fast-forward seventy years and you will see Hazel preparing for a visit with her granddaughter Meghan in her Las Vegas home.  Meghan is planning to spend several weeks with her grandmother; however, she is surprised to find her own mother, Diane, answering Hazel's front door!  You immediately sense the tension.  Diane has been angry with her mother for years over her over-protection.  Megan finds herself in the middle trying to keep the peace.  Meghan's idea to create a scrapbook of her grandmother's life brings a long-held secret to life.  Meghan and Diane soon learn that Hazel had a three-year-old sister, Maggie, who went missing some seventy years ago!

At work, Meghan and her partner, Sean, spend hours trying to solve cold cases.  Meghan has just found a new  and very personal case for them to solve.  It is interesting to follow these three women and watch the changes in their relationships as they search for Maggie!

I received this book from Waterbrook in exchange for my unbiased review.
