Murder at Marigold Inn (Sky High Pies Mysteries #19)

Standard

36329654

A lovely evening at home with Jack is shattered by a phone call. A local resident called Kate to ask for her advice about a potential break-in. Though Kate suggests that she stays away from the door, and to let the police take care of it. However, a gunshot a piercing scream tell Katie she didn’t listen to her instructions. After driving to town she finds out that not only is Meg missing, but the cause of death of the victim was blunt force trauma. Now Katie must figure out if she was played off if Meg is actually in danger.

The mystery was a little more interesting than the last one. Having Kate as a witness, over the phone, is an interesting add-on to the story. I wished we had learnt more about the victim in this book, it seemed to just be brushed over but we didn’t really learn anything. I felt like this story was not really focused on leaving the mystery to feel flat.

We got to see a new town and learn a little more about Katie’s high school years. I would really love a little more expansion on her time as a PI other than the death of her boss. I felt as though we learnt a lot about some people, there wasn’t a cohesive story and it felt a little weird. Though we did learn about a town next to Crescent Creek and a little about some secondary character, I felt like it was a little dry.

It was a fine book but nothing really stood out in this book.
