As the third book in the series I am fully attached to Kenni by this point. She has proven that she is dependable, smart, sweet, caring, and in my opinion a really good sheriff even if she is getting her training by being thrown into the deep end. This story is no exception. The death of a famous author is their small town really heats things up as the gossip rolls around about a tell-all book that was written before the author died. It must be a good one because it seems that everyone around town wants to get their hands on it including the killer as the bad person goes after anyone even remotely connected to the possible location of the thing. One woman is found dead outside the antique shop and another is found knocked out inside. The injured just happens to be her opponent for sheriffs wife making the run for election heat up as well. Events really come to a head as things keep happening one after another until Kenni is finally able to put all of the puzzle pieces together revealing the killer which I admit surprised me a little bit. This is a really good mystery novel with a leading female law enforcement officer that i highly recommend to fans of that genre. Since I really enjoyed it gets 4/5 stars.
