Title: The Book of Beloved (Pluto's Snitch #1)
Author: Carolyn Haines
Stars: 5 out of 5
A mystery/ghost story set in the deep south of the Mobile Alabama vicinity. The story and subject matter have a chilling factor to them which is true (unfortunately) to the time period of the plot. The heroine is both brave and gutsy in her pursuit of the truth and does not allow the numerous obstacles deter her from the truth. In the last pages, the author sets forth in bare bones, what will surely be the plot for the second book in the series.
I have given this book a five star rating and recommend it to anyone who enjoys either murder mysteries or ghost stories.
I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
Thank you Frank for you wonderful Reviews.
