Boxes For Beds

Written by Maryann Miller

Genre: Historical Suspense

In this historical mystery, set in Arkansas in 1961 when the mob still ruled Hot Springs, babies are being kidnapped, and the local sheriff has to put this case to bed before the bosses come down from Chicago. They don't need the heat, and they have the leverage with the sheriff to make him do whatever they want.

It seems like a good move to arrest Leslie Richards, the new woman in town, even though there is only thin circumstantial evidence against her. Better for it to be a stranger taking those babies and not one of their own.

Leslie has left New York with her ten-year-old daughter, Mandy, hoping to escape from her past and the ruins of a relationship, only to discover that there is little peace for her in Pine Hollow, Arkansas.

Suspence and mystery and yes romance. New lady in town and they decide she has been stealing babies for years! very good story and very beleiveable twists, I like stories that allow you to get inside the charactor this one does that.

I first was interested in this because it is set in one of my favorite towns, Hot Springs, and during a totally interesting period of recent history. The story and plot made me glad I'd read it. Very well done and an excellent read.

I quickly got caught up in the emotions of the main character, and loved the suspense! Well written, and a definite page turner! Great work, Maryann Miller!

If you are looking for a suspense/mystery/love story(without the sexual contents) you should read this book. It was fast moving and I could not stop reading. It has almost everything you want in a good clean book.

Quite an intriguing story. Good reading. Will move on to other titles by this author. Didn't guess the surprise ending.
