About the book
A summer of fun at a Catskills resort comes to an abrupt end when a guest is found murdered, in this new 1950s set mystery series.
It’s the summer of 1953, and Elizabeth Grady is settling into Haggerman’s Catskills Resort. As a vacation getaway, Haggerman’s is ideal, and although Elizabeth’s ostentatious but well-meaning mother is new to running the resort, Elizabeth is eager to help her organize the guests and the entertainment acts. But Elizabeth will have to resort to untested abilities if she wants to save her mother’s business.
When a reclusive guest is found dead in a lake on the grounds, and a copy of The Communist Manifesto is found in his cabin, the local police chief is convinced that the man was a Russian spy. But Elizabeth isn’t so sure, and with the fate of the resort hanging in the balance, she’ll need to dodge red herrings, withstand the Red Scare, and catch a killer red-handed.
And I thought
Winston the cover dog stole my heart.
I loved the locale and the time period.
The location Haggerman’s Catskills Resort brought me back to one of my favorite movies.
The resort is filled with lots of characters; guests, staff, entertainers. And once the body is discovered
The Cozy Mystery had me turning the pages.
Author Vicky Delaney hit the ball out of the park with this new series.
A great start to a new series with great characters. A bunch of mystery, a few laughs kept me turning the pages.
I am rooting for Romance for Elizabeth she deserves it. And a break from her famous mother that draws in the visitors and tries to run the show.
Elizabeth is a good little sleuth that I am sure will get better as new mystery present themselves in the next book.
I am looking forward to visiting Elizabeth and Haggerman’s Catskills Resort again soon.
I received a complimentary copy.
My review will be posted on retail sites and Good Reads.
