Last week saw the release of the eleventh installment in the McKinley Mystery series, Halloween is Murder. The good news is that readers and reviewers are loving it. Here’s what some of them had to say:
“Just a nice & fun old fashion mystery. Sean and Sara were both fun to watch, as well as their team. Halloween is Murder was very well written, a fast read, great characters, and a fun mystery with a resolution that I did not see coming… If you like mysteries that are light, fun reads, you should give this one a try.”
–The Reading Café
“Well-written story with funny, likeable characters. It was a fast read and I found it hard to put down … so I didn’t. I’m not normally a fan of cozies, but I sure would take a gander at the other books in this series.”
–Strong Book Reviews
“Reading a McKinley mystery feels like visiting old friends. The author does a great job of writing exciting mysteries that keep it fresh, even in this long-running series. I’m already excited for the next adventure.”
“Halloween Is Murder is light and enjoyable, with a good cast of characters, lots of humour, and a Halloweenish-edge.”
–Nadaness in Motion
“This is the first book I have read in this series, but I am sure it won’t be the last! The Halloween theme makes it a very timely read, but it would be a good read for any time of year. It is also easily read as a stand-alone story if you haven’t read the earlier books.”
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.
