Also by this author: Murder at Redwood Cove
Fortunes, fineries, and foul play . . . It’s whale-watching season in Redwood Cove, and B&B manager Kelly Jackson’s battening down the hatches for the tourist rush at Redwood Heights—a Victorian-style estate owned by her boss. And due to recent jewelry thefts, her duties include keeping track of the many dust-covered artifacts spread throughout the property. But when Kelly finds Sylvia Porter’s lifeless body, menial tasks don’t seem so terrible. Enlisting the help of a ragtag group of brainy retirees, aka the “Silver Sentinels,” Kelly’s on the hunt for clues hidden behind the mansion’s glamorous façade. . .and for a killer who may want to make history of her next!
Here is what I thought
Renovations are going on over at the Redwood Cove B&B, so Kelly’s boss has her putting up guest in a Victorian mansion he has since it’s whale watching season. Kelly’s in control of keeping track of the antique items but then she discovers a body and things take a different turn.
Kelly is not real interested in looking for a killer but she hates that they think that Stevie could be blamed since they already think he might have been the one stealing things from the mansion, as well as one other person. So she does a little snooping and that leads her to finding some interesting things along the way. Someone doesn’t want her snooping and tries to get rid of her so now the cops are trying to keep her safe as they try and catch the killer.
Second book in the Kelly Jackson mysteries and I really enjoyed it. Kelly just wants to run her B&B but right now that is not happening so she tries to make the most of it. She doesn’t really want to get involved in a murder investigation but at the same time she can’t help but be a little curious about things going on. It has a great bunch of secondary characters and one of my favorites is the little boy Tommy, he is adorable.
It has a really good mystery and I just never figured it out! 🙂
Overall, I think this is a fun series and if you are a fan of cozies you should check out this series!!
I really like Reba Buhr and she does a really good job with this cozy series.
