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.
Don't let a decent book get thrown aside because the wording is completely distracting. Heck, I'll even be a beta reader for free.
There are grammatical errors, such as use of "I" rather than "me" and "hear" in place of "here" , for example. Distracting.
There are silly mistakes, such as seeing something by moonlight in the midst of a blizzard, not once but twice! I've seen blizzards and I've seen things by moonlight....but never at the same time; or, reaching down to pat the dog's belly while the dog is lying with his head on his paws.
The plot, and I use the word lightly, was absolutely full of holes. "Whodunnit" was easy, why was the only mystery. Well, it's also a mystery how the victim learned "over the years" something that nobody but a dead person knew! Strange, that.
That's it. No more Harley Hill books for me. I do enjoy a good, cozy mystery now and again, but I prefer them to be well written.
I will give it a second star because it is relatively clean.
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.
