I enjoyed the dual mysteries Meghan and Sean are investing as well as the side story about Meghan's father. The book moves well and goes quick and I really liked the ending. Overall a good read, and a good series. I actually would love another story with these characters and see how their lives turn out after this book.
I received this book from NetGalley and was not required to post a positive review. All thoughts are my own.

And yet, I can find some similarities in this book. This book is about several hurting women. It is a sequel to "Bringing Maggie Home" and I highly recommend you read that one first. I did and while I think this would have still been a good book on its own, it would have raised so many questions that were answered in the first book.
A single mom who raised her daughter on her own, a daughter who has always wondered what it would be like to have a dad, and a grandma who was plagued by a secret she held for 70+ years. That's the premise of "Bringing Maggie Home" and while some of those questions are answered in that book, a lot remained for this book, "Unveiling the Past." And one thing that was impressed in this book is you can always have access to a Father, your heavenly Father, if you are willing to avail yourself of his help.
This book focuses about evenly on Meghan and her mom, Diane and talks about their journeys to finding forgiveness and hope and restored relationships. The book is well-written and flips back and forth to tell two stories from about four points of view. It does tie up pretty neatly in the end, but I could easily read another book about these ladies.
One phrase that really stuck out to me in this book was this: "Don't let bitterness erase the memories." How true that is. We can get stuck in the hurts of the past and forget all the good times that we did enjoy. It's a good challenge for me to remember.
A little bit more about the book/books. Meghan is a cold-case detective and in this story she and her partner, help a young girl and her brothers find closure as to what actually happened to their dad. It was fun to see how the case worked out, but also touching to watch Meghan, who struggled with the idea of being a mom, show motherly care and concern on this young girl who was determined to tag along on the investigation.
I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more by Kim. I received this book from Waterbrook/Multnomah via NetGalley and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
rkfall5 Stars Out Of 5Investigation cases and lifeDecember 29, 2020rkfallI found Unveiling the Past by Kim Vogel Sawyer to be a favorable read. The author lets us into the characters lives as we watch how they work together on investigation cases and come into new ones. Sometimes, based on their life experiences, there can be tension with this. There is also a story line of wanting to extend their family. They have quite a few things to work through. That sure kept me reading through this one.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
