“A well-told tale… a compelling story… Cantell has the indispensable skill of a storyteller…” – Philadelphia Inquirer

When Jordanna Bronson attends college on a beautiful campus in St. David’s, Pennsylvania-the former estate home of her aunt and uncle, socialites John and Adelaide Colton-all is not what it seems to be.

Untying the Shadows

 

My second novel is another twisting timeline mystery. Tess Thompson’s father dies mysteriously just days after Christmas when she is a little girl.

Coming in late June 2018!
