If Only She Knew

(The first book in the If Only She Knew Mystery series)
A novel by


She thinks she's solving her family's murder, not ensuring her own. If only she knew what danger lurked ahead…

Peace Bloodson always wondered about the origin of her family's curse. Dark tales about the gruesome death of her ancestors, the founders of her hometown Bloodson Bay, are retold in fearful whispers around campfires. Wide-eyed children search the shadows for ghosts said to haunt the townsfolk. And the abandoned manor at the edge of her family's farm—called the Slaughter Shed for good reason—holds mysteries no one can explain.

As the small-town rumors, and body count, have grown over the years, so does Peace's curiosity.

When she finds a hidden journal that sheds light on what happened those fateful years ago, Peace uncovers a secret she doesn't expect. An ancient murder she and her friends must solve to lay the ghosts to rest and restore her family's reputation.

But as she discovers information that could cause a public scandal and tear her friendships apart, she faces a much more present danger as someone would kill to keep the truth hidden.

Throw on your favorite flannel and combat boots, then dive into this 1990s throwback thriller that smells like teen spirit as a group of friends risk their so-called lives to stop a town's curse. But some threats are far worse than any curse…

Click READ NOW to venture into historic Bloodson Bay, where one family's darkness spread to destroy an entire town.

As a witty origins story to the bestselling thriller Little Does She Know, it can also be read as a standalone.
