In Secrets at Abbott House, Sandy, Bobbi and Lizbet are caught up in a case of murder and corporate espionage that takes them on a dangerous journey from northern New Jersey to the Carolinas to Haiti and back again. Set in two time periods, the present day and the Antebellum/Civil War era, the action in this mystery plunges our three "sheroes" into a murderous and threatening enigma of big business subterfuge on an international scale. The plot shifts from counterfeit high-tech fashion labeling, contemporary sweatshop trafficking and homicide to Civil War-era family secrets of slavery, forbidden love and murder -- all linked by old letters, diaries and flashbacks. Sandy, Bobbi and Lizbet travel the historic Underground Railroad, starting in a little known UGRR station in Montclair, New Jersey, tracking villains through the shocking Carolina upcountry to the troubled isle of Haiti and back again. The danger and secrets they uncover will test their courage and friendship as they thwart corporate crime and complex scams, global in scope.
