The Mystery Box: A Soccer Mom's Nightmare

The Mystery Book Collection

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Soccer mom Yvette Palmer lives an ordinary suburban life in San Antonio, Texas with her husband and three children when a box is delivered to her by mistake, and in taking it to its rightful owner—a crotchety neighbor named Mona who shares her back fence—is drawn into a strange and haunting tale.

Mona’s ratty robe, mood swings, and secretive behavior all raise red flags, and Yvette is sure someone else is living there despit Mona’s claim to live alone, but Yvette is unable to break away as she listens to how Mona transformed from a young college woman about to be married to the odd, reclusive, ghost of a woman she is now.

As Yvette listens to this strange woman's story, she discovers a shocking connection, but doesn't know whether Mona has come to help or to harm her and her family.

Customer Reviews

The Mystery Box

While this story started out on a shaky foot, I am glad I stuck it out! An excellent story/mystery that keeps you on your toes and full of surprises right to the end!


Hmmm, what can I say? First off this is not my type of book, so I don’t know if this a fair review. It was just plain weird. It did have parts that captured my attention, but then there several parts that I skimmed and I don’t really know what those parts had to do with the story. They seemed pointless. I didn’t really like any other the characters either. No one stood out and grabbed me. Like I said though, this isn’t my kind of book.

A Good Read

This book turned out to be a good book, but I had to force myself to stick with it. I thought it had a lot of unnecessary details that weren't necessary to the storyline and I found myself skimming over pages to get to the heart of what the story was about. At the end, good book.
