A Deadly Brew (Tourist Trap Mystery #9.5) by Lynn Cahoon

A Deadly Brew (A Tourist Trap Mystery) - Lynn Cahoon

 

This book's storyline takes place between books 3 and 4. 

 

I liked this book better than the first novella (Rockets Dead Glare). It was the perfect Halloween bingo story - it takes place in October, at an abandoned mansion, with a ghost and a cold case to solve. Jill is sensitive to the ghost's demands to solve her case and her teaming up with Esmeralda was perfect. No one else in the party seemed to be interested in the case until Jill started to put all the pieces together, then everyone tried to help. Greg was the voice of the skeptic, but he knew better than to go against Jill's detective skills, so it was nice to see him let her take the lead and support her. And bonus points for finding the rapist/killer and seeing them brought to justice even after all the years have past.
