Run Time: 4 h and 57 mins
Kaley’s enthusiasm for Halloween gets dampened by a murder. She’s shocked when an acquaintance she doesn’t particularly like asks her to clear her name. I recommend NOT reading the back cover copy because it pretty much spells out the story.
– The performance wasn’t anything to write home about, but it fit the story. (The main character’s voice sometimes grated on my nerves. This too fits the character, but that doesn’t make the annoyance go away.)
– Typical cozy mystery. The MC doesn’t do a lot of investigating. She basically asks random people questions and gets into trouble. She’s sort of likable though.
– This is 13 in a series of standalone mysteries set in Aloha Lagoon.
– They’re decent fluff pieces. If you’re looking for a mystery you don’t need to think about, go for it.
– fitting for a Halloween themed book. Might fit some bingo boards or something.
– Incidentally, with that spelling I would not have pronounce the name (“Caileigh/ Kay-ley.” I probably would have gone with Kal-lee.)
– It’s missing a cat to be officially the quintessential cozy.
– Her aunt fulfills the quirky weirdo character role.
– Kaley’s relationship with her boyfriend is decently believable.
– Really wish the woman could defend herself. That would make it much more interesting.
Kaley won’t ever make the top 10 of my favorite characters, but she’s plucky enough for the role she’s given.
