After Geoff’s PI teacher was found dead. Murdered by blunt force trauma caused by on of Geoff’s fudge balls. He is now the prime suspect in the murder investigation, however, he is missing and no one can find him. Heather is brought into the investigation to find out who could have murdered the victim and where the hell is Geoff?
Geoff didn’t make an appearance, however, he was the centre of this story. Finally, He’s being used for a productive reason. I enjoyed them looking into a mystery involving him without him present. I’m certain that he will be in the centre of the next book as well. I feel like Gillard is playing with the idea of having overarching story lines through the novels, and given how quickly they come out, it would be a good idea.
I am having an issue keeping up with the timeline, but each book seems to be a week and so some of the events seem to happen a little too quickly. Like the little talk, they have about Lilly.
I enjoyed this book though, and it was a good continuation of the story.
When Heather gets called to another crime scene at the Kenny’s household. After the death of his wife, and the imprisonment of his daughter, Mr Kenny is found dead inside his residence. Heather pushes past the sadness to track down the killer and find closure for the town.
Geoff finally got used, and I finally like him. Now that I get to see what overarching story that he is part of I can finally enjoy his character in this book. I kind of feel bad for Geoff in this book, which makes me feel bad about hating him.
Heather’s past gets to be fleshed out a little bit in this book with the aid of Kate. Knowing Heather in the series it seems hard to believe that she would hang around with someone like her, but then again it was mentioned that she was a different person.
I enjoyed but also disliked that the Kenny was the victim in this book when his wife was a victim only 2 books prior. I have no love loss for the Kelly family, but it was a little odd.
Overall I enjoyed the book.
