Want a new friend to read about? Meet Harley Hill and her friends.
Mostly set in a purportedly haunted house in Scotland, this is a short story with a few more characters than required...I suppose to make the whodunnit a bit less obvious. Chase does a nice job filling in details without giving it all away. Evidently this is #3 in the series. I'm starting #2 next because, well, I'm weird like that. Harley Hill seems to be quite a character, with her foster home upbringing, etc...should make for several stories, especially with her penchant for finding trouble.
Chase seems well-rooted in England but with a bit of American thrown in there for good measure...perhaps that's what's going on in Hill's background as well.
The action was slow getting off the ground. In fact, it was more than half way through the book before we get to the actual murder. The mansion is what we would expect from a haunted place -- secret rooms, creaking floors and lots of snow to isolate the characters.
The action finally hits its stride in the last quarter and Holly, Cole, Cordi, et al solve the crime.
This was too cozy and too drawn out in the beginning. I gave it 4 stars solely on the basis of the last quarter of the story.
The writing is appealing to me, humorous in spots, and the author has been able to surprise me at times, which I really appreciate! There are very few editing errors.
These are kind of classic murder mystery stories, so in some ways they remind me of Agatha Christie. But Harley is undeniably young and modern, vulnerable and funny!
I also am very grateful that the romance does not devolve into explicit sexual language. In so many books it does, and trends to detract from the experience. Especially in the mystery genre.
I can't wait to read about Harley's next adventure in America!
Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys? As the story unfolds you find out answers to a long hidden mystery and just how bad the family history really is.
Lots of good Clue type fun, romance, deception and discovery. I love the new addition of Max the dog but missed Monty the cat who stayed at home with Aunt Maggie.
Can't wait to read the next installment in this funny new series.
If you like Cozys you'll really enjoy this caper as it's got all the right gothic elements tied into a modern package which makes it unique. I was lol-ing when the secret passageway showed up even.
It takes some skill to move a gothic into modern reality tv, so the author's got some. I look forward to the next installment.
