About “The Scarlet Thread”
Every family has secrets, some wonderful and some terrible.
When Kenna started working for Lachlan and Grace Sinclair, all she could see was a pair of rich parents who were more interested in impressing the wealthy of Huntstown, Virginia, than attending to their kindhearted son Declan.
However, everything changes when a tenacious stranger requests her help to uncover the identity of a killer who may somehow have connections to the Sinclair family.
As Kenna’s world starts to tumble down around her, she is faced with ghostly voices, closets filled with dangerous skeletons, and a mystery that has spanned decades.
