Mary has uncovered an astonishing find! While she is helping out at a furniture drive, she finds a false bottom in a desk drawer. Inside, she discovers a mysterious manuscript that isn’t quite what it seems; it’s a confession for burning down the Ivy Bay clock tower long ago! But Mary knows that someone was convicted for that same fire! Was this person wrongly accused for the crime? With the clock tower becoming a suspiciously important landmark in the upcoming mayoral race, it’s up to Mary to discover the truth behind the manuscript and uncover a story that someone is trying to hide. Will she be successful in her investigation, or are there too many people with too much to lose who don’t want her to be successful?

About Work in Progress

While cleaning out a desk at the Grace Church furniture drive, Mary discovers a false bottom in one of the drawers. Hidden inside is a manila envelope with a manuscript. Hoping to be able to return the manuscript to its rightful owner, she takes it home and reads through it, looking for a clue to its origin. Instead, she discovers that the manuscript is the first part of a memoir that confesses to burning down the Ivy Bay clock tower fifty years ago.

Mary knows someone was convicted for starting the fire. Did the wrong person go to prison? The clock tower has become a key point in the mayoral race with the candidates engaging in a heated debate centered around the destroyed landmark. But why is it suddenly such a hot issue? The manuscript holds the key to what happened all those years ago—and someone doesn’t want Mary to figure it out.
