All Daisy Savage wants is a vacation. A romantic getaway with her husband. Seven blissful days at a fancy resort to relax, recharge and renew.
What she gets instead is a dead body at a campground.
When Daisy and her husband Jake head north to Minnesota's lake country for a weeklong stay at a lakeside retreat, they're surprised to find out the place they've won a trip to is neither lakeside or much of a retreat. Stumbling upon a dead body makes the place even less attractive.
The charms of the campground begin to grow on Daisy, however, and she can't help but be troubled by the bad luck that seems to be raining down on Delilah, the quirky owner of Windy Vista. The more questions she asks, the more things don't add up. And the more curious Daisy becomes.
Despite Jake's pleas to end her amateur investigating, Daisy finds herself in the middle of trying to save the campground from ruin. Doing so, though, puts her in the middle of vandals, liars, thieves and...a murderer.
Which turns out to be anything but a vacation.
After a day of home improvement, I started to read"Last Resort". The second in a series of murder mysteries, I fell in love with the blended family, second-time around characters in these books only recently. Accustomed to action filled spy and police procedural genre, I postponed starting the first in the series... Don't make my mistake. The end of one book, will send you quickly opening the next.
Last Resort and Murder Pit
I actually laugh out loud at the away Daisy and Jake converse with each other. Sometimes I have to stop reading because I can’t stop laughing. The plots in both are good and flow easily.
A quick, easy read. I like the characters and the plot line is good enough to keep you interested.
