Synopsis:

The seventeenth book in the popular and enduring Loon Lake mystery series, which has sold more than 200,000 copies!

A lovely Sunday afternoon in late June and the annual Loon Lake Youth Fishing Tournament is coming to a close. People are happy, kids full of ice cream and teenagers setting off firecrackers so loud no one hears the gunshot. But when the crowd thins out an attractive young wife makes a grisly discovery: A single bullet to the brain has killed her much-older husband--the richest man in Wisconsin.

Just as Loon Lake Police Chief Lewellyn Ferris gets the murder investigation underway, her good friend and deputy coroner, "Doc" Osborne, is alarmed to hear his oldest grandchild, fifteen-year-old Beth, has been caught in a drug sting.

And Loon Lake's idyllic summer is further shattered when numerous elderly patients in Loon Lake's nursing home discover they have been robbed.

Review:

Setling back into this series is like settling back into a comfortable arm chair with a cup of coffee! Doc and  Lewellyn  are a couple you root for and hope that they will make their relationship permanent one day! Once again they have an unusual mystery to solve that doesn't appear to have an easy solution. Add to that family drama, both within the murder and at home, and Doc can't seem to catch his breath! This is a fun Summer read that is perfect for reading at the lake house, or at home, wishing you WERE at the lake house! Once again the combined wits of Doc and Lewellyn make for a great solving team and I can't wait to read the next book!


About the Author:

In her teens and twenties, mystery author Victoria Houston was the classic hometown girl who couldn't wait to leave her small Wisconsin town. She has not only returned to her hometown, Rhinelander, but she has based her popular mystery series in the region’s fishing culture. Check out her website for more info on the Loon Lake series!
