This plot has numerous interwoven mysterious situations to resolve. Possibly, the greatest question may be is the family safe at this cabin get-away?

The entire Thomas family takes a Thanksgiving trip to a mountain cabin after Tess learns that her father visited the area every autumn to hunt and fish before his supposed death in a fiery truck accident.

After arriving at the cabin, Tess and Tony, along with Mike and Bree, team up to investigate a suspicious death, while Tess and Tony secretly talk to people who live in the area and once knew her father.

Hoping to finally find answers for her unanswered questions regarding her father’s current whereabouts, Tess widens her search which leads her to a startling realization.

Meanwhile, a stray dog seems intent on adopting Mike in spite of Mike’s insistence that there is no way he has room in his life for an energetic and mischievous puppy.

Review by Joanne K.:

Once again, this creative, prolific author has done the impossible… come up with a story that is sad and sweet and packed FULL of emotions and intrigue.

This mystery series demonstrates how Tess works hard to balance family and career and still finds time to solve mysteries the family issues…rehome pets, interpersonal relationships, etc. ring true to life.

Small towns and large cities alike often encompass families that have unknown dynamics or unresolved issues that are rarely discussed, this story sadly draws attention to the similar situations that tend to be closer in thought during the holiday season.

Many families travel to spend time together over the holidays. Tess, her mom, brother, as well as her boyfriend and her brother’s girlfriend, take a vacation to a place that Tess’s father used to visit. Shortly after they arrive Tess and Tony find the body of the property caretaker floating in the lake.

They are drawn to investigate which leads to them to stumble upon information related to Tess’s father. As their investigation deepens more questions arise. Is Tess’s father still alive? Where did a stray puppy come from? Who killed the caretaker?

This plot has numerous interwoven mysterious situations to resolve. Possibly, the greatest question may be is the family safe at this cabin get-away?

Set during the Thanksgiving season, readers will recognize the importance of giving thanks for family and friends.

The story is plausible, and the well-developed characters are perfect in the roles they portray.

Ms. Daley’s cozy mysteries are always solid. Each book can be read as a stand-alone although I do suggest readers start with book one as the book each lays more of a foundation and character development which makes the stories more enjoyable.

This book is well written with a plot woven to hold the reader’s attention. It is a quick read. I recommend it especially if you like holiday-themed books. I recommend this book and believe readers who appreciate a good cozy mystery will enjoy this book.
