This is the second installment in the series although this one can easily be a stand-alone. I love cozy mysteries, and this series just gets better. I can’t wait to see what is in store next for Cat!
Cat runs a writer’s workshop/retreat in an old Victorian home. Thinking that the writers might need some R&R, Cat and her boyfriend take the crew and hit the slopes. Christina, one of the guest, is having too much fun and is a little too tipsy. Meeting a stranger at the bar and cozying up to him was not what Cat had in mind for a fun time.
Later, Christina is visited by a stalker who gets his due by being hit with a garden gnome from Cat and a shovel by Christina.
Unfortunately, for Christina, the ski bum neglected to mention that he was getting married. He just happens to be found dead in a tub, and Christina is found covered in blood. By all accounts, Christina is a scorned lover and has ended the bum’s downward slide.
Yet another storyline is conjured up from valuable paintings that are stolen from the local college. Although there were several storylines connected, the book was easy to follow. I really like the author’s writing style, and the narrator did an excellent job bringing these characters to life. I can’t wait for book 3!
Thanks to Tantor Media for supplying me with this book in exchange for a honest review
