Unwanted Discovery - Book One (second edition)

Unwanted Discovery

My name is Sharon Cooper. How do I start? My mother disowned me when I moved out at 18 and my dad passed away 15 years ago. But things really took a turn for the worse when I had to inventory my mother’s mansion. Thank goodness my daughter, Callie, was able to help me get through all of it.
I can’t believe I grew up in that house without ever knowing about any of the life-changing secrets I discovered within those walls: decades-long secrets, unbelievable family history, unknown relatives, connections to the mob, greed, blackmail, and murder. Now, how do I handle what I’ve learned?

Old man

I’m Sharon Cooper and I love my husband, Jack. But his father, Ralph, is another story. How he raised my husband to be such a nice man is beyond me. Needless to say, I was floored when he showed up at our doorstep one night insisting that he stay with us. I don’t work outside the home, so I went to Jack’s mother, Cora, to find out what happened and maybe figure out how to get Ralph back home. Little did I realize how difficult that would be, or how much it would change our lives.
