The series begins with A Mountain of Mystery. When Sadie’s old friend Edwin retires to his parents’ Victorian home, he finds a gorgeous antique wedding gown hidden in the attic. It’s in perfect condition, except for one important thing — a bullet hole in the bodice. When he shows it to Sadie, he also reveals another antique that suggests one of Sadie’s relatives knew how that bullet hole got there. As she is investigating the history of the dress, a mysterious visitor arrives who wants the gown — at any cost. Will the stranger be the key to unlocking the secret past of the dress? Will she uncover what happened to the bride so long ago?
The series continues with Nobody's Safe. As restoration begins at the historic Silver Peak opera house, the workers discover an old locked safe that’s been sealed in the walls for decades. Sadie wants to put the safe up for auction to help pay the cost of renovation. But what about the contents? What treasures might be locked within? When an anonymous note is left on Sadie’s car, threatening Sadie if the safe is opened, she is more determined than ever to unlock the safe’s secrets and reveal who wrote the notes, before it’s too late?
And in the third book in the series, Silver Surprise, Sadie’s grandson Theo finds an old journal at a Denver yard sale and brings it to his grandmother to find out its value. The book’s arrival in Silver Peak unexpectedly stirs up old conspiracy theories and memories of hard times when the bank was robbed. This brings into question — after decades of quiet — whether James, the mayor, and his family are reliable. James’ reputation has never been destroyed, but he indeed sees the robbery as a stain on his family history… a stain that may now wrongly ruin him if Sadie fails to uncover the truth.« less
