After a slightly stressful girls vacations, Alison and Sonja are on their way back on to Haunted Falls. However, when a flash storm happened, they get stranded at a rest stop. Everything seems fine until a girl’s dead body just outside the door, this gets dangerous. Between not being able to contact the Sheriff’s office, and the legend of the wolf pack, Sonja is between a rock and a hard place.
I enjoyed this book, it was more of Sonja doing her thing without having to worry about stepping on Frank’s toes. We also got to learn more about the legends that surround the woods of Haunted Falls. Though this was a one-room mystery, it really did help to build Haunted Fall’s surrounding area. The owners of the pit stop were really interesting acute, they were the standard all American couple. We also got to see how Alison would react to yet another dead body. This book was really good for the character development and expanding the world.
I really found that the mystery was a little simple and odd. Though the reasoning behind it made a lot of sense, the story was told a little oddly. I also found that it was a little obvious right off the bat. I wish there had been more nuance to the murder and mystery. I did like how everything in the book was related which is nice. I also enjoyed the way that the wolf pack also ended up being a part of it.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book.
