Tess Spencer is a modern day "Nancy Drew" and somehow murder always seems to follow her.
She is married to the Prosecuting Attorney of their town, and has a 2 year old baby girl.
This time she is off to visit her mother who has just been released from prison. Her Mother claims that she has turned her life around, gotten off the drugs and selling them and wants to find a new home, so Tess is off to help her. But, there is a knock on the door when Tess arrives at her mother's, it is the Realtor that was supposed to show them some properties. He just found a dead body in her Mother's yard. Her mother is scared because if it who she thinks it is, he is on drugs and she thinks they will accuse her.
After the police arrive and Tess goes back to her mothers trailer, she finds her mother missing. While trying to find some clues as to where her mother might have gone, she finds some drugs in her mothers house. So is her mother back dealing drugs and is she responsible for the man's death.
She will still be working with Detective Zeke and he has even offered her a job as being an assistant when she gets back home. But nothing is going to keep Tess from finding her mother, even dealing with drug dealers. She enlists the help of Rosemary to find out who the killer is, but will she find out things she doesn't want to know? Is her Mother involved?
Another great one and hope that there will be another one out!
We finally meet Tess's no-account, druggie mother in this book. Newly released from prison, Pearletta Vee Lilly swears she has turned over a new leaf. Yet when a
young teen in Boone County turns up dead in Pearletta Vee's yard,Pearletta is gone before you can say "boo."
I thoroughly enjoyed this story,sad as it is. Drug abuse affects so many families in real life, and Gilbert writes this novel to bring attention to the epidemic as well as raise support for a drug rehab center.
While I thought this would be the last Murder in the Mountains story, there are enough unanswered questions that would beg a fourth book.
Inquiring minds want to know more about Andrew, Charlotte, Rosemary, and Zeke Tucker. Oh,yes, and Axel. Definitely Axel!
"...chasing after the wind in Boone County..."was my favorite phrase from the book, which like titles or phrases from Heather's other novels,has a double entendre. Not only does Tess feel like she is chasing after elusive answers, but the drug abusers themselves are certainly chasing after a happiness they never quite find, taking more and more drugs in an effort to find or keep that ultimate high. Great work, Ms.Gilbert!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I was not required to leave a review, positive or negative.
Heather Day Gilbert writes in such a manner that once you begin the first sentence you do not want to lay the book down until you finish the final sentence. Very readable and fast paced and exciting and sad and happy all at once.
I cannot wait until the next book in the series is available !
