Halloween is Murder – A Book Review


NEW RELEASE….

Beware of all that goes bump in the night…
 
Sean and Sara McKinley are excited about the haunted house they’ve set up as a Halloween charity fund-raiser, but things take a ghoulish turn when the reporter covering their story is found dead. With the media keeping mum about how she died, Sara’s curiosity is piqued, and she convinces Sean to take on the investigation through their PI firm.
 
But this case is not without its challenges. The police are actively investigating it, as well, and it’s not even clear that the woman was murdered. It will take a little cloak-and-dagger, dress-up, and finesse for the McKinleys to get to the bottom of it, but they aren’t the kind to give up.
 
As they troll for leads and work through the skeletons in the reporter’s closet, they unearth a few suspects, but they’ll need to carve out the whole truth if they’re going to find her killer. If they do so fast enough, there might even be time for a little trick-or-treating.

 

Available to buy from…… 

What to expect from the McKinley Mysteries:

Romance. Humor. Murder. Are you looking for a murder mystery without all the graphic violence and foul language? Something that you can enjoy in an afternoon and walk away feeling good about afterward? How about a dash of humor and romance? If so, meet former detectives Sean and Sara McKinley. When a billionaire leaves them all his money, they no longer have to work, but they find themselves sticking to what they’re good at—solving murders. Undercover, off the books, and around the world, they’ll get to the bottom of things…and romance it up along the way.

While I have read other books by Carolyn Arnold, I had yet to read a McKinley Mystery. I immediately fell in love with Sara and Sean. I also fell in love with the area Halloween is Murder is set in. Why, you may ask? Because I am familiar with the area so it really brought me into the story more than just having to imagine an area in my mind.
The mystery of the reporter’s death had me hanging until the very end of the book. I really wasn’t sure who had killed her until close to the end. Arnold has a way of leading you, the reader, to think it may be person A and it is really not. Once Sean and Sara had it narrowed down a bit, I started to see who must have been behind the murder but that was close to the finish of the book.
Pick up a copy of Halloween is Murder and have a ghoulish time for Halloween. You’ll be happy you did. I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
