As a reader and lover of mysteries, I will now admit I am addicted to this series!!
Whew, there I said it out loud. Where have you been Mildred Abbott? But, thank goodness you are here now.
This is the Fourth Book in this series, as we cuddle up and spend some time in this small town of Estes Park nestled into the Colorado Mountains. Main Street is a bustle of quaint stores, all waiting for ‘Season’ when the crowds come for vacationing.
Winifred (we call her Fred) has come here to settle after her divorce, and loss of her business. Her mother lives her with here with her new husband after the death of her first, who had been Fred’s Dad. Hew was a detective killed in the line of duty. Fred has come to set down roots, open her dream of a book store…She has now become the Nancy Drew of Estes Park and I Love These Stories.
Ms Abbott has slowly built a town we can visualize, people we recognize, and murder a plenty in this sleepy village. This particular story centered around Katie; her new best friend, business partner and fabulous baker extraordinaire. My mouth waters as the fabulous smells emanating out of the book as I read.
The tease of romance is just a hint…..The mystery with Fred and her almost human pet Watson are great…
Can’t wait for another book…….
