Bill is on the hook for the Halloween homicide—he was the last one to see Evan—so Lucy knows she’s got some serious sleuthing to do. The crime’s trail seems to always circle back to Country Cousins, the town’s once-quaint general store that’s now become a big Internet player. Though the store’s founder, Old Sam Miller, is long gone, his son Tom and grandson Trey now run the hugely successful company. But whispered rumors say things aren’t going well, and Lucy finds that this case may have something to do with an unsolved, decades-old Miller family mystery…
With each new lead pointing her in a different direction, Lucy sees that time is quickly running out. If she wants to spook the real killer, she’ll have to step into an old ghost story… @goodreads
I used to read books by this author all of the time but I stopped several years ago. I just couldn't get into them any more, but I wanted to try this book because of the cute Halloween cover since it's my favorite time of year :)
This story was okay, there were so many little things in the book the characters did that annoyed me. But I thought the murder mystery itself was a good one and they had a giant pumpkin contest along with other things during their Giant Pumpkin Fest. I always wanted to try that :)
Lucy's husband Bill grew a large pumpkin to enter into the contest and he also made a pumpkin catapult for that contest. Bill seemed to be portrayed as an idiot in the book. He wasn't making wise decisions, maybe it's a man thing. :)
Anyway, I thought the book was okay and I loved the Halloween theme!
