Advance Praise

"What a terrific read "Woodson Falls: 9 Donovan’s Way" is! It seems like a pleasant sleepy town, but beneath the everyday lives of the townspeople, surprising secrets and schemes unfold. What appears at first to be a routine death by heart attack has unforeseen twists and turns. Attorney Gaby Quinn approaches the problems she encounters with compassion and truly clever instincts. This was an engrossing mystery that was written with a knowledgeable background on a wide variety of subjects that gave rich dimension to the characters, the plot and the town of Woodson Falls. The townspeople felt like familiar friends, and I hated to turn the last page… no matter how satisfying the story was to me. I know there are more secrets in Woodson Falls yet to be unearthed! You will find it hard to put down once you get started… I must admit I read it into the wee hours of the morning!

"Hints of unresolved issues from the past give me hope that there is more to come. I want to know more about Gaby’s past and dig up more secrets. I can’t wait to read the next book of what lies beneath the surface in Woodson Falls."
— Phyllis Schaer, Candlewood Lake Authority, former Chairman of the Board of Directors

"Our favorite New England small town attorney-turned-sleuth Gaby Quinn is at it again in Andrea O’Connor’s expertly drawn novel, "9 Donovan’s Way." Quinn, who we initially met in O’Connor’s first Woodson Falls novel, "16 Lakeview Terrace," is a plucky and likable attorney with a nose for detail—details that grippingly add up to a shocking crime. O’Connor, as in her first novel, brings the town of Woodson Falls and all of its inhabitants to life with her own nose for detail and shows, once again, a mastery of the book’s subject."
— Don Lowe, First Selectman, Sherman, CT

"After reading Andrea O’Connor’s first book, "Woodson Falls: 16 Lakeview Terrace," I was looking forward to the next mystery in the series, and I wasn’t disappointed. Gaby Quinn, the main character, has a habit of getting into the middle of things without really trying. Going about her day-to-day work as a probate attorney should have been one boring day after another of shuffling paperwork. Somehow a dark cloud follows her around and a week or two of billable hours turns into one strange twist after another. The characters come to life and the town and events are real, strange, but real. After the first few pages, I couldn’t put it down. A great read and I am looking forward to the next book, "Woodson Falls: 2 Sunrise Trail." What other strange events will happen in this small affluent community?"
— Marc Youngquist, author of the Maidstone mysteries

"A cozy mystery for readers who think they don’t like cozy mysteries! I enjoyed the first book in the series and patiently waited for this second installment. "Woodson Falls: 9 Donovan’s Way" does not disappoint. I loved learning more about Gaby and the town of Woodson Falls. I’m invested in Gaby’s backstory and impressed with her character. I think the legal angle is brilliantly done. Who knew that estate law mysteries could be so compelling! I can’t wait for Gaby’s next case!"
—Brandy Gray, NetGalley reviewer

"This is the second book in the Gaby Quinn Mystery series, and the second I’ve read set in Woodson Falls. Another good mystery told from the viewpoint of Gaby Quinn, the local attorney. The character development and clues are spot on—and it’s good to see Gaby’s relationships, particularly with Matt and Nell, developing; and her own character building and becoming stronger and more confident. This story focuses on the mysterious death of an author and the disappearance of his girlfriend, but there are side issues dealt with as well along the way, all of which add to the rounding out of the town, its residents and its problems. The end of the book gives us a tantalizing glimpse into the focus of the next story. I’m looking forward to it and hoping that the series continues as I am now very much invested in these characters."
— Barbara Crompton, NetGalley reviewer
