A killer on the loose, a cunning amateur sleuth, and a trail of candy pigs…

Determined to get on with her life and pursue her relationship with the gun-shy cop Brogan, Carol thinks she's put sleuthing behind her. But when she discovers her best friend Skye murdered alongside a mysteriously shattered peppermint pig, Carol is once again thrown neck-deep into a murder investigation.

Teaming up with Brogan on a mission to unravel the mystery behind Skye's untimely death, Carol must weed out the true culprit and bring a cold-blooded killer to justice. But as she digs deeper, it quickly becomes clear that this case will be much more difficult than meets the eye…

A sly shoplifter, a husband caught up in the throes of a bitter divorce, and a notorious homewrecker are all possible suspects. And as Carol gets closer to the truth, she discovers an elaborate plan that's far more sinister than she ever could have imagined…

Can Carol avenge her friend and catch her killer? Or will the true culprit outsmart her and slip away scot-free?

    One of my favorite series is the Sweetfern Harbor by Wendy Meadows so I was anxious to read a new series of hers. Usually when I start a new series, especially from an author I've enjoyed reading in the past, I'm not at all wishy-washy about it, however, I'm not really sure how I feel about this book. I like the main protagonist, Carol, and the small town of Tinsel Pine sounds charming but there are other characters I didn't care for and, honestly, rubbed me the wrong way right from the start. I will continue to read this series in the hopes that it grows on me and because I like Wendy Meadows so much. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
