Great Escapes Book Tours Book Review: A Fright To The Death

A Fright to the Death (A Family Fortune Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Berkley (April 7, 2015)
ISBN-13: 978-0425264485

From the author of Be Careful What You Witch For, here is the newest Family Fortune Mystery, starring former cop Clyde Fortune, who—snowbound with her kooky family in a creepy castle—is climbing the walls and combing the halls, looking for a cold-blooded killer…
After their flight to Mexico is cancelled, Clyde and her detective boyfriend, Mac, end up snowed in with their families at a supposedly haunted hotel. Clyde’s tarot card reading mother, Rose, is making dire predictions for the weekend, and self-proclaimed pet psychic Aunt Vi is enchanted by the legend of the hotel’s ghost—until the power goes out and a body turns up.
With a hotel full of stranded suspects, Clyde will have to draw on all her skills—both the police ones she’d rather forget and the psychic ones she’d rather ignore—to solve the bone-chilling mystery before someone else gets iced…

Review: I discovered this series last year and I'm glad I did. This is another one the paranormal cozy series that I love.

I've mentioned that for the most part I'm burned out on most things paranormal, except when the relate to cozy mysteries.

This book is a little different from the last one as it is set at a haunted hotel! Such Fun!

I also loved that this is a "snowbound book," which was fun to read as we are bidding goodbye to that nasty kind of weather.

I love Clyde and Mac and their families. I also love that there's not a love triangle involved here, as that seems to be an "In" thing with cozy mysteries.

Can't wait for the next book.

When I was ten years old, my two favorite things were climbing trees and reading. As a bonus, I discovered if I combined the two, I could hide from my mother when she wanted me to clean my room. Nancy Drew and I spent many afternoons solving crimes and avoiding chores. Eventually, I moved on to Hercule Poirot, Sherlock Holmes, and Stephanie Plum. I improved my housework-dodging ploys.
After many years in Michigan, I now live in Iowa with my husband, son and daughter. When I’m not writing or chauffeuring kids, I keep busy catering to the whims of a bossy bichon-shih tzu mix who wants to rule the world.
