Suffering a near death on a curve of the mountain, Daisy and AnnaLise hold on to their lives as their car hangs precariously close to the drop off as their car is hit, or was it. Having heard a gunshot shortly prior the accident, both ladies are incredibly confused. A village friend, Josh appears and reassures both that he has phoned 911. When the emergency crews arrive, they are surprised to see the ladies and running after a loose wheel, looking over the cliff, another car is found. Meanwhile, AnnaLise is shocked to find out that the wife of Rosewood has been killed as her car flew off the other side of the mountain, minutes before her accident...was it an accident or planned?
When AnnaLise's mother's front window is shot out the matter falls heavily into the hands of the Police.
I enjoy Ms. Balzo's writings. The book was a bit heavy with AnnaLise's emotions that made you feel you 'knew' the culprit, but, with Ms. Blazo's proven talent with twists and turns, you can be sure you are wrong. I was surprised and saddened by the culprit and reason for the crimes. A good read.
This was a good read and the author did a great job in keeping me in suspense with the many twists and directions the story took in unraveling and exposing a killer. AnnaLise is a strong yet vulnerable heroine as her search for answers brings her face-to-face with some of her own past actions. This character-driven whodunit boasts a wonderful supporting cast, good conversations and southern charm. The ending left us with new possibilities and I look forward to reading the next book in this charismatically appealing series.
AnnaLise has errands to run and the Rosewoods all have plans so the visit is none to sweet but very short. That is until AnnaLise learns that Tanja has had an accident on the treacherous mountain road outside of Sutherton. The tragic accident turns out to be deadly. Then there is another death and AnnaLise just can't shake the feeling that these deaths are related. Her journalist instincts take over causing her to learn just how far people with go to get and keep what they believe is theirs.
When you think of Sandra Balzo you think of Small Towns - Big Crimes and that is the story she delivers.
The story is full of southern charm. The Woolly Worm Festival is right around the corner. Mama Philomena's restaurant serves up recipes like Corn Flakes Crunchy Baked Chicken, Grape Nuts Pudding and complimentary Chex Mix, the comfort food Mama (Phyllis) grew up on. And like any small town everyone knows everybody's business. Or do they?
The mystery is a delight, full of red herrings that keep the reader guessing as the clues all come together in unimaginable ways. Funny by the end everything makes perfect sense.
The twists and turns are not all in the story. The roads around Sutherton are crazy. I was gripping the book and holding on for dear life in several places. I would be a driver just like AnnaLise, timid, slow, mindful of the drop offs, but her mother and others that drive those roads daily tear up and now the mountain with ease.
Sandra Balzo is a gifted storyteller, her stories just flow with a perfect balance of what makes up a great cozy mystery. Quirky characters we love, a well-plotted story with just the right amount of humor, taking place in a picturesque setting with "cool mountains" and beautiful lakes and trout filled streams. Her stories are the perfect kind to escape into and I look forward to every trip.
