Wild Moose Chase is the third in the Candy Holliday series. In my opinion is by far the best book in the series. For me, this was a very satisfying story that read very quickly. A book I didn't want to put down.

It's late January and Candy is browsing thru the seed catalogs looking forward to being able to plant a garden. Out of the corner of her eye she sees a figure stumbling from out the woods, heading for her house. She runs out to see who this person might be as he collapses into the snow. She recognizes him as Solomon, a recluse who lives in the woods. The only thing he says is "Body" and Candy is unable to get anything else out of him. She's not sure what to do, but decides to call the police. By the time she gets back outdoors, Solomon has disappeared without a trace. The police do a search and come up empty handed.

Candy heads for the Town Park to cover the opening festivities for the Winter Moose Festival. She meets a Preston Smith who is in town looking over the town for a future ice sculpting event, he says. He has Candy's attention, as he certainly know a lot about. In the process of interviewing the ice sculptors, she notices that some aren't getting along with the other.

Then one of the sculptor goes missing. Then a body is found along one of the streets by a snowplow driver. Do they have two corpse or are they one in the same. Since Candy has a policeman trailing her where ever she goes, it makes for difficult times trying to find out what is going on in Cape Willington. With the help of Ben, her boss and hopefully boyfriend,and the white moose that is wandering around town, they set out find the murderer.

I enjoyed reading the first two books, but this by far the best one. Some closure was given for the first two books, but then an inkling was given for the storyline of book 4. Be sure to start with the first.

This is a book from a series, and although the mystery is satisfactorily solved, you are left looking forward to the next book!

Candy Holliday sees a man stagger into her back yard and collapse. She runs out to help him, recognizes him as a hermit who is seldom seen. He tells her that there's a body in the woods. She calls the police and when she gets back to him, he has gone. The woods are deep, and in the snow makes it impossible to find a body or the hermit as no one knows where either is! And to top it all off, a white moose seems to want her to follow him - Where?

The town is preparing for a winter festival and a big exhibit of ice carving. Two of the ice carvers have a long time feud, but the carving is wonderful.

This story is complex, has great characters, and is fun to read. The reader is led from one situation to another. The white moose helps!

If you like a fast reading, entertaining mystery story, read this one.

Definitely recommend.

Something is amiss in Cape Willington and Candy is pulled into the fray. When she starts checking into things, nothing is as it seems. This was a fun read and I enjoyed all the elements that went into this nicely-done plot. This evenly-paced tale boasts a great mystery that kept me turning the pages and likable characters. This was good read in this pleasantly charming series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Making ends meet in Cape Willingham, Maine takes a lot of hard work. That doesn't bother Candy Holliday who lives with her dad "Doc" on their blueberry farm and makes pies for a local diner. Candy is preparing to cover the town's annual Winter Moose Fest as part of her other job as a reporter when Solomon Hatch, the town hermit, stumbles onto her property claiming to have discovered a dead body in the woods. The police dismiss Solomon's claim when they can't find the body, but Candy won't rest until she finds out the truth about the body and if it has anything to do with a beautiful white moose that has been appearing in town, or the strange events that have been going on for months.

The book gets off to a great start. It begins with one of Candy's articles, and that gives the reader a flavor of the town and its residents. The book has a great location and an appealing main character. Candy is hard-working, values her family, and is a kind person. I love that Candy is fair-minded enough to admire the writing talent of her nemesis Wanda Boyle who runs a competing news website and blog. Having the annual Moose Fest as a focus for the book is a great idea and I loved learning about ice sculpting along with Candy as she interviews some of the artists for her coverage of the event. I was at first reminded of Leslie Meier's Lucy Stone series and looked forward to discovering what would happen next. However, I quickly became confused about the plot and the backstory of the characters and didn't know who or what I should be rooting for.

There are many different continuing series out there for mystery lovers, and many books that are part of a series are best if you've read the previous books.
