Nothing could prepare Shelly Taylor and Juliet Landers for the discovery of Wilson Barrett dead body in the park during their morning run over the mountain paths. While the police are investigating who could have murdered Wilson. Shelly begins experiencing dreams with her twin sister Lauren that is offering clues. Will these clues help the police solve Wilson’s murder? Right after a meeting at the town hall, Mayor Clay Daniels is murdered in his home. Are the two murders connected? Once again JA Whiting brings a good story of murder. The secondary story is Shelly’s landlord offers a great deal if Shelly will buy the bungalow. Shelly is torn she has been saving money to open her own bakery, but she loves her home, and having her best friend right next door is wonderful
While the plot deals with the mundane of life, it flows logically to an obvious conclusion. The paranormal stuff is kept to an almost believable level, overly explained through normal mental processes. Explanations for the protagonist's anxieties get a bit tiresome, and the convenient best friend with access to police investigations is quite contrived. The boyfriends are cardboard representations, don't matter much to the story, but serve as appealing distractions.
This has murders and suspense in a 'Who dun it' murder mystery. I like the characters in this series. Shelley lost her twin sister in an automobile accident but Lauren appears in Shelley' dreams to give her clues to help with the murder case. Juliet and Shelley are best friends and help the police dept, Juliet' sister & boyfriend solve cases. This one was interesting because there were a few viable suspects. A very good 👍read.
I was so excited to see a new book in this series. Every book by this author has not disappointed me. The characters are always interesting and the plots are well thought out. My only complaint is that I wish I wasn't caught up with all of the series. Now I have to wait until the next one is released.
I like that the characters, and scenarios are mostly believable. The individual books read well. What I don't like is how the timelines of the books seem so jammed together, in too short of a period of time. Few people experience finding a body. Fewer people find the bodies of people they do not know. Finding a body is a traumatic event. I wish mastery writers wouldn't write of a protagonist finding bodies more frequently than twice in a decade,
