In this book of the Flapjack series, I found an unusual motive for the murder but the mystery was not much. I was disappointed with excessive verbiage I found. Marley’s anguish as she learned of an affair that had occurred earlier in Brett’s life. It covers much of the book. There are a number storms passing through the area. This is true of that area in the fall but the same words were used for each storm. Flapjack, the cat was mentioned several times but the same words were used each time. Marley attempt to escape from the killer went on too long.
A movie company is in town to shoot a remake of a classic horror film. Marley makes friends with the movie crew and Christine invited her to see how she works. On Arrival Marley finds Christine’s trailer on fire. Christine was recused from the fire but she was strangled. Marley is determined to find the killer. Not a lot of information about the murder is found in the book. Marley did a lot of internet searches. Will she figure out the killer before Market’s life is forfeit? Original Recipes are included.
Disclosure: I a free copy from Alibi through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

    Appealing cover and title. Too bad the book didn’t live up to its potential.
