Once again it is Halloween in Ashton Falls and the gang is set to decorate another haunted house. They try their best to make sure it goes off without a problem unlike the past several years. But once again another murder found in the location.
Throw in a big football game and old friends returning to the scene things get interesting. As old friends who hold grudges are thrown into the mix. Will Zoe be able to find the killer before her best friend Levi become a victim? Add a few secret notes along the way, to keep you on your toes.
Another interesting read in the series.
It’s Halloween season and time for a big high school football game as well as the Ashton Falls’ annual Haunted Hamlet event and Zoe is hopeful that the curse on their haunted house has ended. For the last several years, the haunted house has had to be canceled because of murders being committed on or near the proposed locations shortly before the festivities are scheduled to commence. Levi, one of Zoe’s best friends, has located a house for this year and lined up a group of volunteers to help decorate it. As Zoe is leaving a restaurant after having dinner with one of her best friends, Ellie, the hostess gives her a note that a woman dropped off for her. The message was cryptic, warning of a death, and the need to stop more from happening. Zoe, her husband, Zak, and Ellie arrive at the haunted house to help decorate it and learn that a friend, Joey, has been murdered in the house. When notes keep arriving and a high school friend is shot, Zoe is concerned for the safety of her friends. Zoe, Zak, and their friends work closely with Sheriff Salinger to find the person responsible.
It is hard to believe but this is the 21st Zoe Donovan (now Zimmerman) Mystery. I found this series several years ago and look forward to each new mystery.
Zoe lives in a small town on a lake. This series is loosely based on the Lake Tahoe area. This is the type of small town you would want to live in except for the murders but, then there wouldn't be a story. Think of Zoe as a young Jessica Fletcher or Miss Marple. She just cannot sit back and let the mystery go she has to figure it out. She has assistance in the form of her husband and friends
These are classic cozies, true to the genre as they are clean fun reads with no graphic violence or language. They take place in a interesting setting populated with characters that you get to know and like. Zoe is a strong female character and her husband Zac is supportive and likeable.
Kathi is a talented story teller and has created a setting and a series that feels quite real. Her books are well written and well edited. She allows her characters to grow and change over time. There are always several sub plots at work as well and quite frankly the sub plots are what I think has won her a loyal base of readers.
Kathi has a number of Facebook pages. Just type Kathi Daley into Facebook and you will find them. She posts often. She also has a newsletter. She writes a number of different series and I can recommend them all. Each book is a standalone but I think the series is even better if you read them in order. If you are new to her books she does offer them in boxed sets.
Haunted Hamlet and the haunted house are traditions in Ashton Falls but this year there is the big game happening. This means that a lot of people who haven't been to Ashton Falls in a while will be here. Everything is going great until Zoe gets a cryptic message that starts an investigation that could derail everything this year.
Again, Kathi has done it with mystery, adventure,murder, and of course a little romance. Can't wait for the next installment of Zak, Zoe and the gang.
