Hidden Secrets by Jannine Gallant

If you need a quick escape from your real world, this novel is it.  It's one of those cozy suspense/Mystery romance novels.  It can be for a beach or fireplace reading.
This takes place in a quaint little town along Oregon coast. The story focuses on a young lady who owns a shop purchasing and selling antiques and her best friend who just purchased a restaurant and is in the process of having it remodeled. They decided to have a relationship after being best friends for many years.

There are events which unintentionally heads in the direction of an unsolved missing person case from years ago. That case reopens to a murder case.  Several ladies disappears. The clues point to hero as a suspect.  The heroine sets to find out who's breaking into her store, finding possible suspects for those missing women and the murdered teenager.
Keeps you guessing who the real killer is until the end.  I enjoyed the mystery, the little town and its inhabitants.  It was such a delicious read on a cold night for me.

Low 4 stars from me.

I received this cozy ARC from Kensington Books/Lyrical Press through Net Galley.  Thank you!
