Finally, a story in which a woman thinks she hears shots next door and goes to get a gun, instead of walking around timidly with a baseball bat!

Secrets at Spawning Run is a mystery-thriller that centers around Aurora Harris, whose father's recent death has been ruled an accident (or possibly a suicide). When she enters her Smith Mountain Lake childhood home to find the books askew, her suspicions are raised, but she soon puts the incident behind her. Then her dog discovers a water bird entangle

Secrets at Spawning Run offers the reader the opportunity to sink into its lake setting and enjoy the unfolding of an excellent whodunit. Roseveare weaves a delightful story, filled with witty dialogue and colorful characters as it pulls you into the narrative and vernacular of Southern Virginia.
