The characters are very likable, I would love to hang around with these people. Morgan is a strong woman who jumps in a does what needs to be done. Del who is help around the shop, is a strong, steady character and Bernie who ends up being Morgan's friend, is just as strong as Morgan. The mystery was good, and kept me guessing. My only drawback was Morgan seemed to put herself in dangerous places that could have been avoided, however she did handle herself well. I definitely will continue on with this series. I loved the characters and the setting which made it very easy to become immersed in the story.
But that’s nothing compared to the next morning when she is out on a nearby trail and finds the body of a young woman. She leaves to call for help, but when she returns the body is gone. Will anyone believe she actually saw a body? Was the woman really dead? What happened to her?
With Morgan finding the body in the first chapter, I had high hopes for the plot of the book. Unfortunately, the pace didn’t keep up as strongly throughout. Instead, we get scenes about running the shop or about running period as Morgan gets talked into joining a running group in the area.
And yet, I found myself really enjoying the book. The characters were strong and likable, and I enjoyed spending time with them. They kept me going through the passages where the murder took a back seat.
So I do recommend this book. Just expect the laid back life of a small town instead of the frenzied plot of the big city.
NOTE: I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.
