Murder on Sunset Trail (Sky High Pies Mysteries #21)

Oliva calls Katie is a panic, one of her friends found a diary that not only implicated her friend Roxanne in a murder, but also Trent. The diary was obviously burned and gives information about a missing person from 5 years prior. Katie quickly brushes off the idea that Trent has anything to do with the murder, so she starts digging into the mystery to figure out what exactly happened. Soon, Katie is digging up the past that even the victim of the crime, at one point, wanted to keep hidden.

This was an interesting story, I have always been a fan of the stories that investigate cold cases and things that happened years before. This book taps into a cold case from 5 years prior and they get to delve into the people connected at that time. Not only do you see how each of the characters has grown, but also how they are interconnected. I really wanted to get more information about the family and friends of the victim, however, it was a little on the light side.

I feel like, at this point in the series, the character development has become stunted. I know that at some point in a series the characters can fall into a holding pattern, and this book has gotten there… books ago. If there isn’t going to be more character development on the main characters, maybe they should work on the secondary characters or even the victims.

It’s was a fun book, not my fav but not the worst either.
