This is the first book in a delightful series featuring two sleuthing sisters.

Hemlock Falls is a pretty little town in upstate New York. Sarah Quilliam, with her talent for business, runs the Inn at Hemlock Falls, while her sister, Meg, keeps the guests happy with her culinary abilities. But when it comes to murder, the Quilliam sisters have to rely on other skills—spotting clues, solving crimes, and catching culprits.

The History Days festival is the highlight of the year in Hemlock Falls, and the reenactment of the seventeenth-century witch trials is the highlight of the festival. But this year the mock execution becomes all too real when a woman is crushed under a pile of stones. The victim has been identified as a guest at the inn, but the killer remains unknown—so far.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 11/7/2013

    " This was the first book in the series and fun to see how it all started as I've read books later in the series. I did keep getting the impression that this wasn't the first case they butted in on, so I kept questioning if this was the first book. All in all a fun read. "

    " I believe this is the first in a series. I enjoyed it's few twists, and especially the dynamics between the characters. "

    " So-so beginning to lengthy series. I haven't picked up the second installment yet, but it's on my shelf. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 4/14/2013

    " This is the first book in the Hemlock Falls series, but I don't know if I'll read the rest. The main characters are an obnoxious self-centered cook and a wimpy pushover. These sisters are running an inn and do some amateur detection when two murders are committed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danni | 4/9/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kellie Waldron | 1/31/2013

    " It is very long and rambling "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 1/13/2013

    " I really liked main character Quill, but the ending made her out to look really stupid, so that was a downer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anna | 1/7/2013

    " Hope it improves as the series goes on. Read this book a out a month ago will try and get to the rest in the series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yi | 10/4/2012

    " Didn't exactly took my breath away, but still pretty good. Quill and Meg make a good team. The motive seemed a bit far-fetched, if not a bit unreasonable. Not bad but not great either. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 9/24/2012

    " Meh...ok. Entertaining but not terribly enthralling or addictive. Might try number 2. "
