A Thousand Words - Secrets of Mary's Bookshop - Book 14

After inheriting their great uncle’s house, Mary and Betty find a few beautiful New England landscape paintings tucked away in the attic. The paintings were completed by Mary’s great-aunt Maude, who passed away in her youth. However, when Mary discovers a startling note on the back of one piece, it begs the question: how did Aunt Maude really die? With very little evidence to go on, Mary must use her intuition and analytical skills to find the truth about her deceased relative. Along the way, she not only learns about Aunt Maude’s mysterious past, but also that paintings can tell a story more detailed than words could ever describe..

A Thousand Words
When Mary and Betty inherit their great uncle's house, they find some charming paintings hidden in the attic. The New England scenes are bright, colorful, and full of life. Mary is thrilled to discover the paintings were done by their great aunt Maude, who died young. But a desperate note taped to the back of one of the paintings suggests there is more to Aunt Maude than Mary and Betty knew. What happened to her? How did she really die?

Investigating events from over fifty years ago stretches Mary's sleuthing skills to the limit. Then she discovers the key to Aunt Maude's past is in the paintings she left behind. As Mary puts the pieces together, she learns that a picture is worth a thousand words.
