I’m still a huge fan of Nancy Drew mysteries. In fact, I still have the first 20 of that series on the shelf, not three feet away from me as I write. This mystery sure reminded me of those stories and Nancy Drew is mentioned more than once in it, along with the Hardy Boys. There’s a ghost and hidden rooms as the Ducote Sisters, plus their ward Benjy and pets visit an old home in Nachez to help the granddaughter of an old friend with a ghostly problem that turns into a murder.
I’m also a huge fan of the Cat in the Stacks Mysteries by the same author. The Southern Ladies Mysteries still feel like a spin-off and I look forward to this series finding its own place as also I look forward to seeing more of this series. This was a wonderful beach read and I think it unfortunate it won’t be released until October 3, 2017. Nevertheless, do check it out, it is probably as fun a read with a hot cup of cocoa while you’re curled up in an afghan!
Have a good week!
