Bellweather Rhapsody...

Just finished my latest book, Bellweather Rhapsody by Kate Racculia. Loved it!! 
From Amazon:
Fifteen years ago, a murder-suicide in room 712 rocked the grand old Bellweather Hotel and the young bridesmaid who witnessed it, Minnie Graves. Now hundreds of high school musicians, including quiet bassoonist Rabbit Hatmaker and his brassy diva twin, Alice, have gathered in its cavernous, crumbling halls for the annual Statewide festival; Minnie has returned to face her demons; and a colossal snowstorm is threatening to trap them all in the hotel. Then Alice's roommate goes missingfrom room 712. The search for her entwines an eccentric cast of characters: conductors and caretakers, failures and stars, teenagers on the verge and adults trapped in memories. For everyone has come to the Bellweather with a secret, and everyone is haunted.

I must admit, I was hesitant to begin reading this book, but by the end of the first couple of chapters, I was hooked and couldn't put it down. It is a murder mystery, but so much more. It's characters are each dealing with their own issues and it all comes together in the end. It does have some surprising and heartbreaking twists throughout the story, but also some very heartwarming successes and breakthroughs for others

I would definitely suggest you check this one out!
