Book One of The Series
"A Clara and Iris Mystery"
"Not all that Glitters is Gold" as waitress Lizzie Headrick thought ...She had finally met her prince charming in Dr. Grant Chatsworth. She was young and in love, and their quick courtship ended with the four carat diamond engagement ring of her dreams.
Now residing in one of Buckhead’s finest estates, Lizzie soon learns all that glitters is not gold. Her handsome husband, a renowned cardiac surgeon, and developer of a new congestive heart failure drug was becoming cruel and controlling. She finds herself captive in the vast expanse of his estate without a phone or car, and under the watchful eye of Flossie who runs the household.
When Lizzie discovers that Cardiac Care Research, his drug development company, is a Ponzi scheme, she realizes her life could be in danger if she doesn’t somehow escape the gated mansion on the hill. Her only hope is to get to Biloxi, Mississippi and seek refuge with her sister, Maggie. Maggie and her husband, Leland, quickly find a safe harbor for Lizzie in a house on the bayou. However, the house at the end of the street might not be the quiet retreat Lizzie was hoping for.
As the confines of her hideaway close in on her, she retreats to the small historical cemetery next door where the small, damaged tombstone of a child soon catches her eye and captures her heart. Just when Lizzie Chatsworth thinks her world can’t get any more complicated, she finds herself in the middle of a mystery from the 1800s that is pulling her in and demanding she seeks justice.
As her husband’s empire begins to crumble, he’s more determined than ever to find Lizzie and eliminate her.
But, will the mystery of the small tombstone end Lizzie’s life first?
Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle is a page-turning mystery that I could not put down. I wanted to keep finding out what will happen next with Lizzie. I am giving Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle a well deserved five plus stars.
