Title: Haunted Hayride with Murder (An Otter Lake Mystery #6)
Author: Auralee Wallace
Stars: 3 Stars
I will admit starting off a series on book 6 might not have been the best of ideas. I will admit I didn't find it all the inspiring enough to go back and start with book 1.
The story and characters are flat, the mystery predictable, and very little suspense even for a cozy mystery.
Auralee Wallace tries hard to have readers fall in love with her characters but this reader was unable to connect.
Thank you to netgalley and the publisher St. Martin's Paperbacks for the advance copy Auralee Wallace Haunted Hayride with Murder.
Erica Bloom is loving everything about autumn this yearin Otter Lake, New Hampshire: changing leaves, apple cider, cozy sweaters... and the warm and fuzzy relationship that's heating up between her and Sheriff Grady Forrester. But when some local teens out to find some Halloween thrills come across a boot with a dead man's foot bones still inside it, a chilling new reality comes into play. Everyone in Otter Lake knows about the age-old witch who haunts the apple orchard bordering the White Mountains. So when the bones turn out to belong to a long-gone local with a scandalous connection to the orchard, stories of the spooky figure roaming the forests at night once again rise up from the past. Now it's up to Erica and the rest of the Otter Lake Security team to expose the identity of the killer. Will they be able to lay this ghost to rest...or will this witch hunt be their last?
