The Twelfth Child By Bette Lee Crosby

A MILLION DOLLARS IS MISSING. THE NEPHEW IS GREEDY. THE FRIEND IS A SUSPECT. ABIGAIL KNOWS THE TRUTH, BUT SHE'LL NEVER GET THE CHANCE TO TELL... In a story of trust, love and friendship, two unforgettable women find what they've been searching for all their life. 
This heartwarming May-December friendship is reminiscent of Fannie Flagg's Fried Green Tomatoes. 
Abigail Anne Lannigan is at the tail end of her years when she teams up with a free-spirited young woman who moves in across the street. Their unusual friendship comes under suspicion when a million dollars goes missing and a distant relative, claims embezzlement. Abigail knows the truth about the handwritten note but, unfortunately, she'll never get the chance to tell.
Told in the timeless tradition of Southern Fiction, The Twelfth Child is rich with emotion, humor and tenderness.
This Award Winning book is the recipient of the FPA President's Book Award Silver Medal and the Royal Palm Literary Award for Women's Fiction.

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review

The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures."

Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down."

"Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write."

It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: The Royal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.

My Review
The Twelfth Child
By Bette Lee Crosby

The Twelfth Child book one in the Serendipity series!  I started reading this book could not put it down I kept wanting to know what was next. A wonderful story of friendship between two ladies Abigail and and a young lady lives across the street like. Neither has anyone in the world so this friendship blooms into  a friendship like a mother and daughter. But a stranger comes into the picture claiming to be a long lost nephew so he can get his hands on money. Money no  one seems to know about except one person and that person has passed away. Can Destiny prove her innocence in all Elliott is accusing her of to the court? This book is full of surprises. I loved the characters they are very well written. I hope to see more of them in future books. Looking forward to book two Previously Loved treasures!! 5 Star
