Hannah gives Lisa a day off to be part of her family reunion. Everyone was happy when Lisa’s long-lost uncle, or were they. When Gus is found dead the day of the reunion, Hannah has a long list of suspects to go through. As no one has heard from him in over 25 years, Hannah has to dig into the past of some of the Lake Eden citizens to figure out who would have had the motive to kill him.
I loved this story. It adds a lot of depth to some of the characters in the Lake Eden universe. Jack, who I’ve come to love, has finally gotten a love story past having Alzheimer’s and being Lisa’s father. Through this book, Lisa has also gotten more of a background and history, we also get a glimpse of what kind of person her mother was. This book really built up the world of Lake Eden more and makes it feel like a more real place. I enjoyed the teamwork between Lisa and Hannah in this book, though they always have great chemistry, I enjoyed seeing Lisa get her hands dirty in this case. All in all, this was a great addition to the series.
