3.5 Stars:

This was a short, sweet mystery featuring Chief of Police Kate Burkholder and John Tomasetti are taking a much-needed vacation at a small bed and breakfast an hour outside of town. Wherever they go, they stumble upon a mystery. There seems to be a ghost at the B&B where they are staying and it is the ghost of a young woman who disappeared 22 years ago. Kate is intrigued and as is her custom, she begins to ask questions. There was no body, just a pile of bloody clothes and her boyfriend at the time, was the prime suspect. There was not enough evidence to convict him, but everyone in town is sure he was responsible.

This story had a well-written plot for a short story. We learn a little about the relationship between Kate and John as well as this having some closure from the previous novel in the series. A nice teaser to keep your interest up between books for this great series. I listened to the audio version of this story. It’s an easy quick listen, narrated by Kathleen McInerney. I have come to enjoy McInerney’s narrations. She reads at a nice pace and has a pleasant, easy to understand, voice. I have come to identify Kate’s voice easily. This was only 1.5 hours and it was a nice listening experience.


About the Book: It’s autumn in Painters Mill, and Chief of Police Kate Burkholder and John Tomasetti are taking a much-needed vacation at a small bed and breakfast an hour outside of town. After closing a difficult case, they’re looking forward to some down time, but their relaxation is cut short by rumors that the old house where they’re staying is haunted by a girl who disappeared twenty years earlier, leaving nothing behind but some bloody clothes by the river and rumors of a volatile relationship. Swept up in the girl’s story, and a need for justice, Kate and John begin looking into the mysterious disappearance of Angela Blaine.  They discover long-buried secrets—and unravel a mystery with an unexpected outcome.
