<p style="text-align: center;">&ldquo;A nice and fun, old-fashioned mystery. <em>Halloween is Murder</em> was a very well-written and fast read with great characters and a fun mystery with a resolution that I did not see coming.&rdquo;<br /><strong><em>&ndash;The Reading Caf&eacute;</em></strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;">Ask anyone who loves Halloween and they&rsquo;ll probably tell you their favorite part about it is dressing up. When you put on a costume, you can be whomever&mdash;or whatever&mdash;you want. It&rsquo;s liberating! On top of that, it&rsquo;s likely that there are all kinds of goodies lying around the house.<br /><br />When I was a girl, I loved playing Barbie. I loved dressing her up and assigning her whatever life story I wanted. And, man, did I enjoy it! Maybe for a little too long, in fact. I kept playing into my early teens! At the time, I felt like some sort of freak. I certainly wouldn&rsquo;t have wanted this news to get out to the kids at school. They probably would have called me a baby or something like that. So I kept this part of my life a secret, and I justified my addiction by pinning the blame on my sister, who is six years younger than me&mdash;she needed someone to play with!<br /><br />Now that I&rsquo;m older&mdash;much, much older&mdash;I look back and find this aspect of my past amusing. I realize that it&rsquo;s absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about, but it shows me that I&rsquo;ve always loved telling stories and acting them out. No wonder I became an author!<br /><br />In the grand scheme of things, Halloween is very similar. The holiday allows people of all ages to participate in this fantasy, if only for one night. But as an author, I get to experience Halloween every day of the year. I become someone else every time I sit at my desk and immerse myself into the worlds of my characters. I get to delve into their minds, to know their thoughts, their feelings, their personalities, their lives. <em>And</em> I get to share my imagination with my readers. Now that&rsquo;s a real treat!<br /><br />Speaking of, I&rsquo;m going to grab a small bowl of candy corn and gummy peaches and get to writing. Happy Halloween!<br /><br />Carolyn Arnold</p>

<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong><u>Book Overview:</u></strong></p>

<p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Beware of all that goes bump in the night&hellip;<br /><br /></em>Sean and Sara McKinley are excited about the haunted house they&rsquo;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&rsquo;s curiosity is piqued, and she convinces Sean to take on the investigation through their PI firm.<br /><br />But this case is not without its challenges. The police are actively investigating it, as well, and it&rsquo;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&rsquo;t the kind to give up.<br /><br />As they troll for leads and work through the skeletons in the reporter&rsquo;s closet, they unearth a few suspects, but they&rsquo;ll need to carve out the whole truth if they&rsquo;re going to find her killer. If they do so fast enough, there might even be time for a little trick-or-treating.</p>
