Summary

A week-long stay in a creepy Connecticut mansion is replete with hidden passageways, disappearing corpses, and quirky inheritance recipients. And if that’s not enough to make for hair-raising moments on the secluded, storm-bound estate, how about a ghost named Fred?

The stipulation in the will of Jill Jocasta Fonne’s aunt reads: If a guest leaves early, his or her share will be divided among those remaining. The first one to leave - permanently - dies just hours after arriving.

Soon, people start dropping like flies. Donning amateur sleuth caps, Jill and her associates Rey and Linda attempt to solve the mystifying murders. Others jump in, and the bumbling and stumbling - and mayhem - begin.

An Enjoyable And Amusing Mystery

I found this book to be an enjoyable and amusing mystery that purrs along at a comfortable pace, the characters are interesting and there are enough twists and turns to keep you turning the pages. I found this a bit like an American version of an Agatha Christie mystery. It was very nicely narrated by Cindy Piller who has a wonderful voice, I am very much looking forward to book 2.

Lots of bodies, lots of suspects to keep you hooked to the end!
I loved the sarcastic humor.

Cindy Pillar did a great job narrating.

Agatha-Christie-esque, but overly complicated

I love a "locked room" mystery so I was really excited to listen to this book. Honestly it was kind of "meh" for me. I liked the main character and her boyfriend, and I thought the set up for the book was interesting- but I started to lose interest half way through. There's a lot of characters and I got confused who was who as the book progressed. Also there were some detailed scenes that seemed to slow the story down without actually taking it anywhere. It was a good one time listen but not one that I'll go back to again.

Good fun!

inheritance, spoof, situational-humor, verbal-humor, murder, pranks

All of the characters certainly are, including the deceased! Is it a game of clue or the movie Scavenger Hunt? In any case, it's nowhere near as serious as And Then There Were None. It's a spoof or maybe a farce, but in any case it kept me laughing throughout the whole book! It also kept me guessing as to who was behind the murders. Loved it!
Narrator Cindy Piller did a fantastic job of maximizing the fun and the mystery.

It took me a while to get through this book. The mystery is ok but tit didn't grab me. I didn't connect with the characters and the humor fell forced. Cindy Pillar did a good job with the narration. Her narration helped me get through the story. I received this book for free in exchange for an unbiased review.
