Killer Party,, #9 A Tourist Trap Mystery, by Lynn Cahoon

****4 stars

Dynamic, Fun Characters...

Greg's old college buddies gather at The Castle for a reunion and include their significant others. Jill Gardner, owner of Coffee, Books, and More; and Greg's girlfriend, is nervous about being the new girl to the group. Little does she know she will soon have more than social niceties to worry about! 

Cahoon certainly knows how to present the reader with many plausible suspects while hiding the murderer. Yet, the reader doesn't feel cheated, as he/she does get to see the guilty party in action. It's just a "whoops,she fooled me," reaction.

Another thing I will say for Cahoon's series,is that the characters are dynamic. There are changes in Aunt Jackie(oh, my goodness,what a bridezilla!!), and Greg and Jill. I also was a great fan of the changes I saw
in the employees of the shop. How fun! Also loved the "surprise" relationship!

It is my hope that Greg and Jill will decide to make their relationship permanent and their insecurities won't have to be the focal point of the book, when they've already committed to cohabitation.

I gratefully received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley and the publisher. This in no way affected my review, freely given, or the opinions therein, for which I am solely responsible.
