Review: June by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

June by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore
From the New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweetcomes a novel of suspense and passion about a terrible mistake made sixty years ago that threatens to change a modern family forever. 

Twenty-five-year-old Cassie Danvers is holed up in her family’s crumbling mansion in rural St. Jude, Ohio, mourning the loss of the woman who raised her—her grandmother, June. But a knock on the door forces her out of isolation. Cassie has been named the sole heir to legendary matinee idol Jack Montgomery's vast fortune. How did Jack Montgomery know her name? Could he have crossed paths with her grandmother all those years ago? What other shocking secrets could June’s once-stately mansion hold?

Soon Jack’s famous daughters come knocking, determined to wrestle Cassie away from the inheritance they feel is their due. Together, they all come to discover the true reasons for June’s silence about that long-ago summer, when Hollywood came to town, and June and Jack’s lives were forever altered by murder, blackmail, and betrayal.

As this page-turner shifts deftly between the past and present, Cassie and her guests will be forced to reexamine their legacies, their definition of family, and what it truly means to love someone, steadfastly, across the ages.

Review

This book had me at blurb literally one I read it I was intrigued. What it gets down to this book it's a story within another story. We meet Cassie who is the main character in the book who is in morning she has just lost her grandmother. She finds out somethings about her grandmother and questions if she really knew her at all? This was such a lovely read set in St. Jude, Ohio and also in the 1950's involving some Hollywood stars and some sad turn of events. This does have the making of a slightly intense book in some scenes but i don't know if you could call it a thriller? Overall I enjoyed the book it has a bit of everything from family secrets, blackmail, murder, rich kids, and that not.
