You won’t believe what’s hidden underneath all those stacks of newspapers in this clock shop!


Holly walks into her uncle’s clock shop to find the place stacked waist-deep in trash. Her uncle is a hoarder! But, then she starts finding money stashed between the pages of old newspapers and in boxes of clock parts!

When people are suddenly willing to kill for a clock that isn’t even valuable, and a homeless man, whose teeth are whiter than hers, shows up and stays, Holly’s imagination runs wild!

Save time for this book—Time Will Tell: A Merchant Street Mystery, Book 1!

Story-line: Being paranoid, Holly Waterbury just can't handle all the suspicious behavior centered on Merchant Street in Salt Lake City. Being volunteered to help her hoarding Uncle Kipp recover after a fall and finding out he has a dog is not helping to calm her excitable nature either.

But, it's really Zach Abberley, the good-looking, take-charge homeless man, her uncle hired to help clean up his clock shop that has Holly baffled. Just why are his teeth so white? Throw in a not-so-valuable clock everyone is willing to kill for and Holly's imagination runs wild.

Only time will tell just how long it takes before Holly will figure out the mysteries of Merchant Street, including the sexy homeless man.
