in the Zoe Donovan Mystery series
by Kathi Daley
When a ghost hunter is found dead in a haunted house just days before Halloween it looks like the killer may be living impaired. Zoe must juggle the annual Zoe Donovan Spooktacular with zombies on the run, the annual pumpkin carving contest, a haunted hayride, a relationship in crisis, and a little behind the scenes investigation
I really enjoyed all of the Halloween activities that go on in the town of Ashton Falls. The Zombie Run (man I'd love to see on of those around here), haunted hayrides, pumpkin carving contests, and murder. No wait, murder is good for the story, not good in real life. But Kathi Daley sure does do it up right. She keeps the mystery building and keeps the reader guessing until her reveal.
While Haunted Hamlet would have been a great read on it's own, it made it more enjoyable to have read the first book in this series, Halloween Hijinxs, because we find Zoe back at Henderson House, the setting of the murder from that first story. I love that Ms. Daley took us back to the original scene of the crime. In reading many books, we often tend to forget certain things from our favorite series. So, thank you for the trip back, Kathi!
If you're looking for fun Halloween mystery reads, put HAUNTED HAMLET at the top of your list. And pick up HALLOWEEN HIJINX if you haven't already read it. You're going to love them both.
