Great title...
A captivating read, and I loved the thought of the grove of trees planted in memory of loved ones passed. Well done.

Okay, you can't just start a mystery like that an leave it! No fair! I want to know what really happened to this cousin, if they suspect foul play, then where's the detective and all? lol! Very good atmosphere, with the hint of mystery and the ending, so sad, but glad with the idea of tree planting. That was good! ^_^

Not too heavy--but lots of unanswered suspense. I want to know more about the disappearance and solving the crime. I think mystery/crime is a challenging topic to do in 750 words. I do like your opening "...first clap of thunder from a summer storm." And the planting trees is a good closure.

This story has it all - a good opening "hook", a bit of intrigue, emotions, and a fabulous ending. Wonderful!
Very suspenseful and filled with intrigue. I too would like to know what happened after this. Did the case get solved?

You did a great job with this.
