The Christmas season has arrived! As Sonja and Frank are the newest couple in town, they are inundated with invites. Their holiday calendar is fuller than either of them have seen it before. However, before they can enjoy the first party of the season, Sonja has a delivery to make. This delivery steeped in mystery and problems. When their truck is stuck, and the ferry is forced to stop for the night, they are forced to stay with the family who asked for the delivery. When Sonja starts seeing the ghost of the family’s youngest daughter, she knows things are going to be going from bad to worst.
This was an enjoyable little book. I enjoy how Franck and Sonja work with each other throughout the book to figure out the mystery. Frank is still really against Sonja helping him solve any murders, and he keeps quoting the law. When Sonja speaks with someone in the police station to tell them what has happened, they also agree that Frank should deputize her to be able to help him. I still enjoyed the reality in their relationship. Though it is a lot better than the tensions in the last books, however, now they are an engaged couple.
The mystery was intriguing. The reader got to delve into the family’s past. We get to learn a lot about the daughter as well as the history of the family. I enjoyed how the storyline was able to expand on Sonja’s powers and add another layer to them for future books. The addition is something that we frequently see in books that deal with ghosts, however, it adds to what the characters can do without making them overpowered.
All in all, I enjoyed this book.
