About Yesterday’s News:

Antiques can be a dangerous  business.  Especially  when  you’re  dealing  with  a  desperate politician, a sexy ex-cop, and a couple of “spirited” companions.

Anna  Yesterday  owns  Yesterday’s  Antiques  in  small  town  USA.   When  she  finds  an  old newspaper clipping lining the drawer of an antique dresser, she realizes she’s never heard the horrible story of rape and suicide detailed on the yellowed newsprint. So she starts to dig,  and her sleuthing exposes an ugly cover-up that casts the residents of Crocker, Indiana into danger and intrigue, and leaves them with a corpse.

About Sam Cheever:

Award winning author Sam Cheever mixes in a little fun, a little magic, and a little real-life spice to create her sexy fictional  characters.  Sam’s  fun-loving  creations  fight  their  way  through  a dizzying array of dangerous challenges  without  letting  little  things  like  dangerous  bad  guys, angry, manipulative gods, evil dark world denizens, or killing Furies  dampen  their  zest  for  life and hot love!

In her real life, Sam lives on a hobby farm in Indiana with 11 dogs, 2 horses, 1 barn cat, and one husband. Not necessarily in that order. When asked why, why, why on the 11 dogs (yes,  they  all live in the house!), Sam simply shrugs and says she’s stupid. But what she really means  to  say is that she’s a dog-aholic. She of course can’t be blamed for her addiction. She is a victim. And along those lines, if anyone knows of a support group  for  this  addiction  please  write  Sam  at and fill her in.

Reader review . . . 

When Anna pries open a drawer on an antique dresser in her store, she finds an old newspaper clipping telling of a horrible crime.  Realizing that there must have been a cover-up in her small hometown of Crocker, Indiana, she, with the help of her sexy assistant Pratt, begins to investigate the decades-old story.  But someone in Crocker doesn't want the truth told.......

As a rule, I'm not usually a fan of "ghost stories" (with the exception of Aunt Dimity), so when Joss and Bess first made their appearance in the story, I almost stopped reading.  However, the characters were so engaging that I could not stop reading. With the setting of the novel being an antique store, it is fitting to have an unsolved mystery from decades before.  As this is the first of the series, hopefully we will learn more of the back stories of not only Joss and Bess, but also of Anna and Pratt.  

3.5 stars

Thank you for taking the time to read and review my book.


I loved both of them. I think the review has finally shown up on the "Threads of Yesterday" post. They were both great!
