Overview

Kris Langley has always been obsessed with murder. She blames herself for the violent death of her cousin when they were kids and has let guilt invade every corner of her existence.
Now an editorial assistant and obit writer for a Massachusetts newspaper, Kris stumbles across an unsolved murder while compiling "25 Years Ago Today" items from the microfilm. She grows fascinated with the case of a young cocktail waitress who was bludgeoned to death and dumped in the woods.
Determined to solve the case and atone for the death of her cousin, Kris immerses herself in the mystery of what happened to Diana Ferguson, a talented artist who expressed herself through haunting paintings of Greek mythology.
Not only does Kris face resistance from her family and her managing editor, she also clashes with Diana's suspicious nephew, Eric Soares - until neither she nor Eric can deny the chemistry flaring between them.
Kris soon learns that old news never leaves the morgue and that yesterday's headline is tomorrow's danger, for finding out the truth about that night twenty-five years ago may shatter Kris's present, costing her love, her career, and ultimately, her life.

Editorial Reviews

Cozy Library - Diana Vickery
Even when I'm interested in a premise or story concept, I can be disappointed in how the author handles it. Not so with Stacy Juba. She did a great job with the story. The writing was top-notch, the plotting and pacing excellent, the characters – especially the protagonist – carefully and wonderfully drawn. I can't imagine a reader who won't cheer for Kris.
Fresh Fiction - Lynn Cunningham
This was a very intriguing and captivating book...I loved the characters that Ms. Juba has so clearly laid out for her readers. The subplots of the book were also quite fascinating. Kris Langley is a character that you will remember long after you have completed reading this book. Ms. Juba takes control and leads her readers the direction she WANTS them to move in and you won't be able to figure out the ending until she is READY for you to. All in all, this is a wonderful book.
The GenReview.com - Marlene Pyle
They say writers should write what they know, and as a long-time newspaper reporter, Stacy Juba has done just that. Her depiction of a small town newspaper feels real, and even her minor characters are well-developed. The story flows smoothly to its surprise ending, and only then does the reader recognize the hidden clues that have been there all along.
Bookpleasures - Fran Lewis
What do Diana's studying and painting of Greek and Roman mythology have to do with the surprise ending? You will have to read this well crafted, well-researched and outstanding first novel of the newest mystery writer on the block, Stacy Juba. To the great mystery writers of the 21st century, make room for the author of this great book.
Debbie Wiley Book Reviews - Debbie Wiley
Stacy Juba evokes a wide range of emotions in this poignant tale. The mystery itself is well done while the structure of the novel itself makes the reading flow smoothly. The tidbits starting each chapter add a nice touch as Twenty-Five Years Ago Today is one of those books you pick up and don't want to put down till the very end.
