Zak and Zoe fly to Alaska after Zoe is asked by her dog trainer friend Peter to fly to Moosehead Alaska to deliver a search and rescue dog to a team who is desperate for some canine help after their own dog is injured during a rescue. Within twelve hours of arriving in the isolated little town, Zoe stumbles onto a murder scene where everything must be questioned because nothing is exactly as it seems. When a second body is found and a five year old cold case is reexamined, things go from complicated to bizarre. Meanwhile Levi and Ellie are home in Ashton Falls dealing with complex emotions as they solve their own thorny mystery.
As with all the Zoe mystery books, I enjoyed this easy read. Zoe is delivering a search and rescue dog to an Alaskan town with her fiance Zak. Meeting members of the rescue team, they find new friends at the quaint and quirky local tavern. Each member has their own story, some their own mystery. Zoe and Zak end up boarding in the local bed and breakfast. Per Zoe’s lot in life, she finds a dead body. More pop up, or are dug up, literally. Who exactly was Mr. Dead Guy and what the heck was he doing in that same town? Suddenly in a rush to find a lost child, figure out a past romance, and in a fight for her life, Zoe is in for a rather chilly visit to Alaska.
Kathi’s book are always fun and easy to delve into. The characters are nice to be reacquainted with each month. I typically devour the new Zoe novels, but this one was a bit harder for me to get into. Wonderful story, but it was a bit slow in some parts. But the action eventually catches up with the plot and off it went!
Come for the murder, stay for the romance.
Kathi lives in the beautiful alpine community of Lake Tahoe with her husband Ken and dog Echo. When she’s not writing she enjoys hanging out on the beach with her children and grandchildren. During the summer she enjoys hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, wakeboarding, and sunset cruises on the lake. During the winter she enjoys cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and curling up by a fire with a good book.
Kathi uses her mountain home as inspiration for her books, all which include appearances by the wildlife she shares her life with.
