Oh, I thought Her Mother's Secret had Mystery in it.
And you have Before I Let You Go shelved as suspense yourself?

The first is Historical Romance/Chick Lit and the second is showing as Contemporary. Yes I have it marked as suspense but for some reason that hasn't been picked up on the shelves. Use the second if you want though :)
