Dreams of Falling by Karen White

When Larkin gets a phone call saying her mother is missing, she leaves New York and goes to find her.  She's been fragile lately and she wants to be sure she'd OK.  It's been nine years since she left and she'd rather not go back but she has no choice...

Berkley and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published June 5th.

She was totally mortified by a boy she had a crush on and her father was having an affair.  She left for the big city where no one would know the past and she could create a new future.  She has.  She has a good job and earns good money.  That's enough for now.  But there are secrets at home...

She finds her mother in the old burned out house that is part of her heritage.  She fell through the floor and is badly injured and in a coma.  As they wait for her to recover or pass on, the aunts who helped raise her rally around.  But when she starts asking questions about the fire and the woman who died in it, no one will answer them.  She starts snooping around to see what she can find because the last email her mother wrote was to her about something important she found out and she wants to see what it was.

Her mother has left plenty of clues in her paintings, photos, and hidden written letters.  They are hard to find and her aunts aren't helping. They want to leave the secrets hidden.  But secrets have a way of coming out...
