Waffling in Murder (The Diner of the Dead #20)

Standard

Sonja gets an odd message from Belinda, instructing her to come and meet her in the woods. She’s about to run out to find her friend when Frank comes in with a completely legitimate reason for her to go. An old friend from the rangers needs a caterer for the annual event. Sonja agrees right away, however, now she has to try and focus on finding Belinda while Frank’s female ranger buddy seems just a little too interested in Frank.

So this is the climax book in the series. I now know why the series stops at 20 books and a new series worth the same characters starts back up again. A few series that I’ve read have done this, however, it’s normally due to the main characters changing location. I much prefer How this series handles the change. It makes it feel purposeful and adds to the story.

This book finally answers my question, where has Belinda been the past few books. Similarly to the books, she was in, sheer played a background role that we never got to see. She finally worked out who the witch is, and needs Sonja’s help to stop them once and for all. There was some redirect to try and stop you from figuring out who the witch was, Mind you, there wasn’t enough information given to really figure out who the witch was.

I really enjoyed seeing Sonja jealous in this book. I have found that Sonja’s character has always been a little 2d when it came to her relationship with Frank, however, in this book we really get to see her possessive nature. I found it quite fun to see how Frank’s ranger buddy pushes Sonja to figure out what type of person she is. This really ours Sonja’s faults on full display.

I actually really enjoyed this book, it was a great wrap up for the series.
