Everything is calm around Sky High until the local police come to see her. When a vintage pie pan from Sky High Pies is found at the scene of two murders, it starts to look like it might have something to do with a part occurrence that happened at Sky High Pies while her grandmother was still alive. Now, Katie starts looking into the murders to figure out what could have possibly lead to the murders.
This story pulled a lot on the past of Crescent Creek, which was nice. We got to hear more about her grandmother. The murders were very precise and used very specific details from sky high’s past that expanded to the history of the town. I did enjoy the significance of the murders and the almost ritualistic aspects to them. It really allowed us to find out more about the characters involved.
Since Blanche plays a large role in the book we get to find out more about her and her past. I’m pretty sure we knew that she was a teacher at one point, but that must have slipped my mind while reading this book. We also get more information about Kate’s high school career and what it was like for the students in the school. The map gets expanded as well, as we find out a little about the neighbouring town and the outskirts of Cresent Creek.
I felt like this book was very focused on the character development aspect of the story, which I loved, but didn’t really leave much to the mystery. Also, a good part of the book was just Kate fuming about the out of town police officer. I still enjoyed the book, however.
