Cotton Candy Fluff Murder + Cherry Dream Murder (Donut Hole Mystery #42 + #43)

Standard

When Heather is called to a crime scene, she is surprised to find out that it’s the young equestrian star, Fred Nolan, who had been in an accident the week earlier. Now the gang is trying to find out who cut the young man’s life short. The only problem is that the Nolan family might be one of the most dysfunctional families to grace Heather’s door to date.

Now that Amy is a full-fledged investigator, the witty comments in the background have been cut down to a minimum, I believe she’s supposed to have been written to finally understand how inappropriate it is. Amy has advanced and aged a little in this book, which I find is nice, as she is in her 40s, similar to Heather.

This murder was fairly easy to figure out, but like always, I enjoyed that we got to see the background of the victim and his family life. That is always my favourite part of any good mystery book.

This was a good continuation of the book series. Also, now I want cotton candy.

When Catherine Willard is found dead only hours after Heather and Amy talked with the woman. Between really odd son and the potential link to a new contractor that just got into town, somethings are just not adding up in this case.

I’m not sure how I feel about this book. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it either. I don’t like the way that one of the characters was used in this book. I get that they wanted to add a criminal with a shady past who is living above the law, but the way they used them it was not the best. I don’t mind the character archetype, I just want them used better.

The mystery was a little too obvious, and the method made no sense. I wanted to find out more about the victim and for the above character to be used. I guess I wanted a little more action in this book then I got in the end.

It’s a fine book, but not my favourite in the series.
