Birthday Cake Waffle (The Diner of the Dead #8)



Sonja’s birthday has come around and Frank decided to do something special for her to help her relax. What was more relaxing than a relaxing weekend in the woods? Everything starts off well until Sonya is certain she witnessed a murder. There is nothing they can do, however, until the local sheriff arrives.

I kinda dislike how Frank doesn’t believe what Sonja saw. I get that there is nothing that they can do until the sheriff’s men arrive, but he didn’t have to be dismissive. I know that he still doesn’t know about her powers but I didn’t like how that scene was written. Them spending some time alone was nice, however, this book seems a little sporadic. This book series normally has a formula or at least an understandable plot to follow. This was a little too over the place than normal.

The mystery was pretty simple given there were only 2 suspects in my mind. Due to the fact that we never really get much information it was hard to narrow it down. The fact that Frank didn’t really ever give Sonja’s worries a second thought was annoying. Hunter added in a little more magic into this book with another cursed item, at least they didn’t pull because magic in this book… they pulled because of ghost, oh well.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and it was fun… though aspects were grinding.
