Sort of a Nicholas Sparks-like murder mystery!

Carolina Moonset takes places in scenic Beaufort, North Carolina, where Joey Green's parents recently retired. As he is confronted with his father's rapid-onset dementia and the exhausting toll it takes on his mother, Joey offers her a break while he looks after his dad. When Joey discovers that a gun only he and his father knew about his missing, it seems old secrets are bound to surface.

The writing is lyrical and descriptive, reminding me at times of Nicholas Sparks, likely due to the setting. The jacket cover seems more ominous than the story might be, but it's unclear from this First Impression. Overall, this read is sure to enthrall the reader with its well-developed characters and unique setting.
