I love this series! In a unique manner, author Laura Carr brings cold cases into her cozy mysteries. Of course, when Nikki starts poking, murder happens as people squirm at the truth unraveling before them!
Nikki’s adorable, “ugly,” famous dog, Elmo, doesn’t seem as involved in this case or novel as with the first. Of course he’s busy getting people’s gardens beautiful. Where can I get a pup like him?!
It’s the same narrator from book one, which is a big thing for me when I listen to books in a series back to back because I like the consistency in the characters. The narrator once again does a fantastic job.
I was given an audio copy by the author but was not required to provide a positive review. These thoughts and opinions are my own. I rate it 5 stars.
Nikki Bryant’s Next Case Takes Her to the Wrong Side of Murder
One spring morning, Jodi Gibbons got up and went to school as she did every day. Her young life went sideways though when the police found that her mother had been brutally killed during the night.
Twenty years later, many in Pine Grove believe Jodi got away with murder. After all, how could she have possibly slept through her mother’s violent death in the very next room?
After decades of silence, Jodi accepts investigative journalist Nikki Bryant’s invitation to tell her side of the story. However, before the interview can take place, someone silences Jodi permanently.
Now it is up to Nikki Bryant and her friends to uncover the secret that Jodi Gibbons has been protecting—a secret someone believes it is worth killing to keep from being revealed.
