Izzy Grant is the cantankerous and rebellious owner of an antique store in a little town. Max Elliot is a rich guy whose family has built the Tawnee Mountain Resort against the approval of the locals. The story starts with Max asking Izzy to join him at his alumni’s reception at the Tawnee Mountain Resort to be introduced to his mentor. With a lot of protest, Izzy goes along. Izzy feels out of her element because it is clear that rich people don’t think the same way as her. It is going to get worse when she meets Max’s ex Priscilla who makes it clear that she WILL be marrying Max. Then we meet Leona Hutton, rich benefactor, lover to Max’s mentor, and parent to Priscilla. When her ghost wakes up Izzy and tells her to find her murderer we learn that Leona has a lot of money that several people want and would rather hurry along her death than wanting to wait. This was a quick read and a really good mystery. I admit that Izzy has a tendency to rub you the wrong way but if you can get past that she is a really good person. I do feel for her during the reception, I mean how are you supposed to act when rich people look down on you and are more than a little rude about it? But the mystery was good and had me guessing until the end, there were several people who could have done it. This is a great short story that has me curious about reading other books with Izzy and Max in them. I am also very interested in reading more about the Tawnee Mountain Mystery Series. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
