The week seemed normal until Katie receives news about a childhood friend being accused of murder. After being reached out to by the family, Katie decides to take a deeper look into her friend’s life since leaving Crescent Creek. She quickly finds out that things aren’t as Rosie for her friend and their cafe. However, things get even more bizarre as it takes forever to find out who the mystery dead man was, and none of the clues are adding up.
This was an interesting mystery that was focused on circumstantial evidence that Katie focuses on explaining all the things that are happening. She does face a little more resistance in this book than in previous books. I do get to see her deal with police officers and even the lawyer that her friend’s family was working with. We are so used to seeing Katie get her way with the local police that it was a little more interesting seeing the pushback.
We also got to learn a little more about Katie’s high school years. Since she gets to talk with Holly about the past for a little bit at the end of the book. Katie and Harper also talk slightly about their relationship back in high school and how it wasn’t as close as a reader would imagine.
It was a very interesting read and I’m still enjoying the series.
