Rose Petal Graves
Olivia Wildenstein, author
Ancient secrets cannot remain buried forever. Founded two centuries ago by an aloof and powerful tribe of Gottwa Indians, Rowan was a quiet town, so quiet that I fled after graduation. Staying away was the plan, but Mom died suddenly, so I rushed home. Dad said she suffered a stroke after she dug up one of the ancient graves in our backyard, which happens to be the town cemetery. Creepy, I know. Creepier still, there was no corpse inside the old coffin, only fresh rose petals. As we made preparations for Mom’s burial, Cruz, the new medical examiner, arrived. I should have felt relieved, but how could I? He was unnervingly handsome, glowed like a human firefly, and knew absolutely nothing about examining dead bodies. But, he did know what killed my mother…or rather who.

Olivia Wildenstein did it again...she is so good at making me think I know exactly what's going to happen and who the good guys are and then she makes me doubt everything! A story that is rich in detail and mood. Waiting for the sequel!
