the Shepherd sisters have another crime to solve.
Savanna Shepherd, an art expert turned elementary art teacher, is planning the Art in the Park festival for her hometown of Carson. But apparently, someone isn’t happy that Carson got to host the event: the beloved statue in the park is destroyed. Not long after, Savanna finds the dead body of one of the people on the planning committee.
Savanna and her sisters are convinced that the arrested murder suspect didn’t do it, despite strong evidence to the contrary. With the help of Dr. Aidan Gallager, Savanna’s new romantic interest, they uncover hidden resentments and intrigue. Several people in Carson had a motive for the murder. Can they find out which one of them is behind the framing of an innocent person?

BEHIND THE FRAME is my first book in the Shephard Sister Mysteries (Technically my second book, but I misplaced book one). I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it! Author Tracy Gardner drew me into this quickly drew me into this story and held me tight until the last page.
I loved getting to know the Shephard Sisters. Their relationship reminded me of my relationship with my own dear sisters. Of course, we haven’t investigated a murder together, but given the chance . . .
The mystery element of BEHIND THE FRAME was extremely well done. The twists and turns kept pulling me in. Each time I thought I had things figured out, another twist would throw me off track. Looking back as I write this review, I realize the author gave more clues than I caught while reading. She was so sneaky!
Tracy Gardner is an author to watch. I’m looking forward to see what else she has up her sleeve.BEHIND THE FRAME was published by Hallmark Publishing as part of their original mystery book series. Fans of their television mysteries, like me, can’t go wrong!
