This was really and engaging mystery because you want to find out what trouble Vangie has gotten herself into (I’m not going to give you any spoilers). Definitely a great read and a great series.

Character Guest Post

When I first came to Montana, I was pretty scared. It was a new place. I wasn’t really prepared for how different it would be from the place I grew up. North Carolina. I was definitely not expecting to fall in love with it, though.

And I totally did.

I love the people. I love my bakery. I love the solitude. I love the long drives and open spaces. And I especially love being able to help people.

I’ve been helping people with their weird mysteries since I came. People sort of naturally turned to me because they knew me, and I love to solve puzzles. I see people and see when someone is really hiding something, and when they’re not. So I think people trust me to help them.

But falling in love with Montana can cause some problems when I bring my past with me. And this time, I’ve brought some people who want to destroy everything I’ve built here.

I hope they won’t get a chance to do that.

I really want to stay.
