Harley Kennedy is our main character who has just been notified with the sad news that her Uncle Tommy has met his demise in a small, backwoods town in Michigan. Harley’s mother Joan, who is quite the character herself, begs Harley to go ‘collect his corpse’ as the local authorities have asked Joan to do, as she certainly couldn’t handle such a horrid responsibility herself. Besides Harley has been made the executor of his will so she reluctantly heads to Outer Michigan at the dramatic imploring of her mother. What could possibly go wrong?
What she didn’t expect when she got there was an underhanded casino development being voted on in this town where her Uncle Tommy lived. Whispering Lake would no longer be the small, quiet and charming hometown community because Denver Development has been buying all the property needed to construct and develop a large casino. But, there are three properties that weren’t selling, and one of those properties belonged to Uncle Tommy. Coincidence that Uncle Tommy accidentally died on the frozen lake outside of his cabin? Some authorities were calling it suicide, but Harley knows her Uncle would never be the type of person to do this. Something awry is happening in Whispering Lake and Harley is going to get to the bottom of it. Even if it means putting herself in harm’s way and danger at every corner.
Oh, and let’s not forget to add in a sprinkling of crazy townsfolk, a eerily cheerful Funeral Director, Harley’s overbearing, criticizing, female fatale of a mother driving out to lend a helping hand and most importantly, the sexy, flannel clad, broad chested, dark curly haired and bearded Bill, who just happens to own the local bar Blue Lagoon and may have eyes for Harley, and you get a recipe for intrigue, amusement, suspense, and the perfect who-done-it! Can't wait for the next book!
I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read and reviewed and my comments are my honest opinion.
The setting for this cozy is a one-horse town lake town that is notable for its lack of any personalities other than those who are suspects in the case. In fact, the only person who is not a suspect is the killer, so it’s easy to solve this mystery early on, as Harley accuses everyone she meets (except the killer) of wrongdoing at some point. The symbiotic, but tense relationship that Carns establishes between Harley and her glamorous, dysfunctional, mother Joan will definitely yield drama in future installments of this series, and the too-good looking Bill yields some promise as well, as the author leaves us some clues that there is more to Bill than his strong jawline and rugged good looks. Hopefully future mysteries in Whispering Lake will flesh out the setting so that it is more than just a cold, deserted resort town in the winter. A summer mystery in which the town is bustling with tourists and activity would be welcome.
