I have read the previous books and found them clever and action packed. The 5th edition continues in the same vein. At first I had trouble getting into the story as the author introduced many new characters making the narrative difficult to read as you try orient yourself to connect all the characters. I felt the story was too busy at times. I forgot trying understand the characters, after I forgot the relationships and just read I had no problems.
Kellen Ayrwick agree to take a young cousin into his household while the boy’s father is overseas. His cottage is too small so he buys and old Victorian house that has been vacant for long. The house is believe to be haunted. Braxton college is rebuilding it library and decided to implode the library. A complete skeleton is found in the rubble. The story takes a number of twists and turns as Kellen tried to understand the genealogy of two families that lived in the house. The interactions between Sheriff April and Kellen are intriguing and often funny. The skeleton identification is important who was he/she?
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND SERIES.
