Abby McCree spends a summer showing family films under the stars—only to end the season with an unexpected slasher flick . . .
Ushered once again onto another committee by the mayor of Snowberry Creek, Washington, Abby is tasked with keeping the box office receipts of the town’s Movies in the Park nights. Cut to the director’s chair from where she’s suddenly organizing the summer’s last feature. From the opening scene through the final credits, Abby feels she’s earned nominations for best volunteer, best movie date with her tenant Tripp Blackston—and best daughter for ignoring her mother Phoebe’s own movie date with Owen Quinn.
Unfortunately, Abby and the others are treated to a post-credits scene: the body of local insurance agent Mitchell Anders. This discovery is followed by a plot twist revealing that the murder weapon comes from Owen’s food truck. With her mother’s boyfriend suspected of murder, Abby starts her own investigation determined to shine a spotlight on the real killer . .
This is the fourth book in the Abby McCree mystery series by Alexis Morgan.
I really enjoyed this installment of the Abby McCree mysteries. I thought Owen was quite a wild card. At first you think he is only her mother’s boyfriend, but there is so much more backstory there. I wish they had focused a bit more on that part since it wasn’t completely clear to me. But indeed good stuff.
The plot was nicely crafted and it makes you continually question your own list of suspects and who is currently at the top. Of course, for me, it can change from chapter to chapter. I like the whole community in this series and look forward to visiting whenever a new book pops up. Definitely a series I want to continue to follow.
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
