Belinda has decided to leave Haunted Falls and has requested that Sonja moves into the manor to take care of it until she comes back. Though Frank has some qualms about it, Sonja assures him that this is only because Sonja was Belinda’s only friend in haunted falls. After a year of calm, another murder has been dropped on Sonja’s doorstep. When a woman is killed in front of the eatery, Sonja’s gears start turning, there is something going on again.
This is an excellent start of the series. As nothing in Sonja’s life is allowed to be easy, she has to go through some trials and tribulations just to fulfill a friend’s request. Sonja doesn’t find out until the end, however, Belinda ends up sending this poor woman to her death. As the person who was trying to kill Sonja accidentally killed this woman. I wonder how Belinda will feel about that when she finds out. I did enjoy the little breadcrumbs leading the readers to the murderer.
I really liked the relationship between frank and Sonja in this book. Though they are not working together, Sonja happens to fall into it like she normally does. It was also interesting to see their fight about her moving into Belinda’s manor, as it doesn’t seem right to him. All in all, he does come around to the idea off it comes to an understanding behind Belinda’s reasoning. The relationship is back to being a little flat, I was really hoping for the development that we saw that the end of the last series to carry over.
I really enjoyed this book and like forward to the new series.
