Item description for Scent of Summer Magnolia by Kat George...
A young widow overcomes her fears to search for the truth about the death of her husband and uncovers some frightening secrets in her mother's past that threaten her own life and the future of her two sons. Widowed Charlie Egen has been recovering from a tragic accident that left three members of her family dead, the house burned to the ground and a gap in her memory. Receiving a strange letter from matriarch Aunt Kirsty, the only other survivor of the fire, she ends her reclusive rest cure and returns with her two small sons to Daneby, the town near the scene of the tragedy. Upon arrival Charlie is plunged into a nightmare of mystery, lies, secrets, and murder, topped off by ghostly bumps in the night and a mysterious stalker. But the stalker underestimates the true strength of the Christensen spirit. Repeating the stories and sagas of her family to the children, Charlie finds a source of strength in remembering the celebrated feats of the ancestors. Guided by the haunting fragrance of her mother's perfume, and supported by the unfailing trust of her best friend, Michelle, Charlie stands up for herself, overcomes her fears and goes in search of the real story behind the fire that destroyed their home, causing the deaths of her mother, husband, and Kirsty's sister. Exactly how, or even why they died that night is a mystery lost in Charlie's blanked memory, and it seems it is a mystery someone is prepared to kill for.
