"A nice and fun, old-fashioned mystery. Halloween is Murder was a very well-written and fast read with great characters and a fun mystery with a resolution that I did not see coming."–The Reading Café

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.

Sean and Sara McKinley are celebrating Halloween by setting up a haunted house where the proceeds go to charity. They are all excited and they get a spot on the news. The problem is the reporter ends up dead right after the interview. Sara thinks the death is suspicious and wants to investigate it Sean has his apprehensions. As they look into the death it looks more and more like murder.

In ” an Oyster Shell – I like this volume better than I have liked previous installments of this series.

The Pearls – It’s always a plus when its a cozy mystery. This one is well done. It’s got all the things that one would want in a cozy a great mystery and a little romance.

The mystery was fun it was hard to know what is going on. I like a storyline that keeps me guessing.

I liked that the author portrayed a realistic marriage. There were some tensions between the couple but they still loved each other. I was really impressed with how authentic the relationship was.

I like that the couple has endless resources. I know it’s not realistic for most people but it makes for an interesting storyline.

The Sand – Sometimes there was a little too much tension between the starring couple.
