In this caper, a man who left town years ago returns. Citizens are angry at this guy for what he's done to them in the past. He would buy land and homes out from under people to make a profit, then run them out of town. A perfect setup for murder, right? Guess what happens... he's murdered! Poor Amanda finds the body again. She was the one person to give him a chance since she's relatively new to Ravenwood Cove. Except, he tries to put her out of business too, right before he's killed by a mysterious mineral. Could it be from the house repairs he's having done on the place he bought to restore to former grandeur? Who has it in for him most of all and took it way too far?
We get to know more about Amanda's husband's family in this book. Gable has also come home, and everyone thinks he did something bad. We learn the truth and why he looks guilty. Is he? Perhaps... you'll have to read to find out. We also get a lovely surprise in the end with Amanda's future, as well as a bad one when someone decided to leave town. Her best friend? Employee? Pseudo-grandmother? New parent she just found in the last book? What's gonna happen!!! 3.5 stars for this one.
This is an idealized slice of small-town life - yes, pretty much 99% Caucasian - where obstacles are easily overcome and life seems to ends well 95% of the time. To achieve this means multiple bad things get glossed over in each story. There is no character development at all. What you get in the first novel is the same all the way through the series (at least so far, and I'm on book #10).
These are 'feel good' stories, which is not a bad thing. Just realize it also means there's not a lot of depth to this series. Romance runs easily (for the heroine/hero). Marriage is a snap. Remodeling and new home construction have no snags (Hah! I wish!). These mysteries are light, easy, quick reads.
