Cait sets out to piece together the events surrounding the accident while Cody agrees to watch out for a teenager on the run in this fast paced cozy mystery. (Goodreads)
This book grabbed me from the first page and took me along for a tension filled ride. The first chapter had mystery and suspension, wondering what was going to happen to Cait. Once that was resolved there was another mystery waiting in the wings right away.
The characters are well developed and well rounded. Not only did we get to spend more time with Cait and Cody, we also got to spend time with Alyson, a character from another on series of this author, The Seacliff High Mystery series. The author does a very good job of writing a crossover book that is entertaining..
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and through much of the book I felt like I was right there, watching all of the action taking place. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.
I really like the paranormal aspects of this book. Not only do we have Shadow, the mystical cat that has appeared to help Cait solve the mystery, but we also have Alyson, who happens to be able to see ghosts. These two things combined made for a bit more paranormal than usual in this series, which I enjoyed.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. The author continues to write great books for her readers to enjoy.
