Being grounded saved Daralynn’s life literally. Instead of being on her father’s plane she was at home. Her father, brother, and sister die when the plane’s engine fails. This leaves only her and her now very depressed, over-protective mother. Daralynn and her mother decide to open a beauty shop. Then one day Clem Monroe comes to town and starts courting her Aunt Josie. Clem starts a business cremating people, but things starts to turn awry. This is a great realistic fiction mystery. Don’t let the cover fool you, it is a real page turner.
