9781561455430: Suspect

Seventeen-year-old Jen is scheduled to spend the summer helping Grandma Kay run the Shoenhaus, a Victorian bed and breakfast. But Grandma Kay s plans include a lot more than housekeeping; she intends to solve a real mystery from the past involving the disappearance of a young woman.
And the victim was Jen s own mother.
Ellen disappeared without a trace when her daughter was still young. For years, Jen received holiday gifts in the mail and letters signed by her mother. But then the communication abruptly stopped. Now Grandma Kay is convinced the letters were forged and that her daughter-in-law was murdered.
The stage is set for an elaborate Mystery Weekend. Family members and friends and even her mother s old college roommate assemble and are assigned roles to play. As the drama unfolds, Jen makes an important off-stage discovery, a diary written by her mother. Soon Jen s worst suspicions are aroused: Could a member of her own family be responsible for her mother s disappearance?
Author Kristin Wolden Nitz has penned a satisfying story that artfully combines all the necessary elements of a great mystery: believable, well-drawn characters, a unique setting, well-laid clues, and a final rewarding solution.

About the Author:

KRISTIN WALDEN NITZ is the author of two middle reader novels, as well as several nonfiction sports books including Play By Play Softball, Play By Play Track, and Play By Play Field. She lives with her family in Michigan.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–9—Jen's mother disappeared when Jen was a toddler but Grandma Kay is convinced that Ellen was murdered. While working at her grandmother's bed-and-breakfast for the summer, 17-year-old Jen must play a part in the annual murder mystery weekend. However, she gets more than she bargained for as she comes to the realization that the plot is alarmingly similar to her mother's disappearance. Taking on the role of Ellen and playing the victim, Jen is surrounded by people from her mother's past. Through the course of the mystery, she begins to piece together clues about what really happened. The characters are likable enough but hardly memorable. The mystery, while somewhat interesting, is wrapped up much too neatly in the last few pages and is not much of a surprise. Still, the book has wholesome characters and an innocent love story.—Jessie Spalding, Tempe Public Library, AZ
