Grace Marsden and her brother Marty both need to get away so they accept an invitation from a childhood friend for an off-season trip to Christian Island. Her friend has invited some other couples to join them. A fluke snowstorm isolates and traps them on the island. When an island Elder is found dead of mysterious causes, they are soon the prime suspects. Grace is a female version of Monk and her OCD often gets her into interesting situations. Plus she can see ghosts. She soon finds out that everything is not as it seems with the people she is staying with. Could one of them be a killer? Can she put the pieces together to unmask the killer before anyone else is killed? I enjoy Grace. She is a great character with plenty of quirks. But the author does a great job of not letting the quirks take over and dominate the story. And I like that even though there are ghosts, that isn't the main focus of the story. She has done a great job of creating a cast of characters that provide plenty of red herrings and misdirected suspicions without seeming shallow. I like the island setting with the snowstorm. The fact that the islanders don't like outsiders really assisted with the story line. I highly recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
