Another crazy case brings Branigan Powers back to try and solve another crime before others get hurt.
When reporter Branigan Powers hears of a fatal car crash involving two college girls coming home to celebrate the holidays, she, and everyone else, think it is just an accident until the sole survivor informs them it was anything but. She doesn’t remember much from the accident, but Charlie swears it was an old-fashioned hearse that forced them off the road. Branigan heads to the college to see if she can uncover clues as to why they were forced from the road. Her search leads her to fraternity row and pledge parties that have gone too far. Back once again to help her with her case is Malachi Martin. Even though he is homeless, he is able to look beyond what most see and uncover details that will help solve another case for Branigan.
The next book in the Branigan Powers book is just as witty, delightful and fun as the previous. The characters bring their own pizazz to the story that keep the story flowing at a great pace. I absolutely loved each of the books in the series and was excited to see a new installment come out. This is the kind of story you can sit down and just enjoy; it is clean, it is witty, and it is well written. Moore has a way with these characters, especially Malachi who is back and able to see what others can’t. This is a Christian mystery series but it is not at all preachy and will appeal to all audiences. The reader gets to venture back into this world that Moore has created and get to dive even deeper. With that being said, it isn’t one that you would have to read the previous books to enjoy and know what all is going on in the story. I highly recommend this to any and all readers that enjoy a good cozy mystery.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
