MAITLAND, Fla., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The untimely passing of "Grandma Grace," beloved matron of Savannah, Georgia, leads to a complex ordeal. Suddenly, every family member becomes convinced that he or she is the beneficiary of her precious heirloom jewels. When the jewels disappear at the wake, veteran Detective Bruce Masters is assigned to the high-profile case, and discovers something even more sinister. Within the pages of Joyce Oglesby's new book, Grandma's Jewels, and the Legacy Behind Them ($31.99, paperback, 9781498401814; $9.99, e-book, 9781498401821) readers will discover a multifaceted mystery, with no shortage of thrills and twists, where real life and family values connect.
"Grandma's Jewels is today's family with yesterday's values!" states the author. "Every dysfunction you can imagine is sandwiched between the pages of this novel: single parenting, alcoholism, rape, a grandparent taking over the responsibilities of parental neglect, wealth, poverty, restoration, and more. Grandma's Jewels is more than the Band-Aid that the world applies to mend families—it's the balm that heals."
