This time around, amateur sleuth and mystery writer Rachel Stowe discovers the body of Brigit Gundersen in her house, hit on the head and murdered. Suspects seemingly abound until another body shows up and then Rachel, along with her pals in the sleuthing business, the Juniper Grove gang, Julia and Holly, must scramble to find out who is responsible before yet another body makes a grisly appearance.
Kaufman is so good at this and her dry wit this time around had me laughing out loud! I very much look forward to each one of these. Well written novellas, but feeling like a full length novel, they capture the reader's imagination and the culprit is always a surprise. Where's number 7?
Turns out Brigit wants Rachel, who the town believes is equivalent to a private eye, to find the woman with whom her husband is having an affair. Although Rachel declines, it later occurs to her and her two friends who compose their "Gang" of mystery solvers, they need to delve into what's happening between this wayward couple and the couple who are their supposed friends.
After reporting a murder to her beau Sheriff Gilroy, Rachel experiences the first of a snippy attitude from him after giving his request that she, for once, stay out of this investigation. Her intentions are good, but information is essential to solutions, and somehow she feels obligated to figure out this bizarre scenario - along with her two accomplices in sleuthing of course.
In the meantime Valentine's Day approaches and the big dance at Townhall has her neighbor Julia madly (literally) helping with decorations while falling for the man who heads the committee. Clueless to Julia's admiration for him, Rachel does her best to run interference, but it's the least likely of particular people who is able to make things happen for them - this of course after the timely solving of two murders.
I reiterate after every episode of the Juniper Grove Mystery installment (this is Book 6), Karin Kaufmann is the Queen of Cozy Mystery writing. She's created meaningful, authentic characters, uses clever wit and humor, knows just how to write them, and gives even the serious thriller readers a good fun release in mystery solving. Bravo, again, Karin.
