Book Review-The Riddles of Hillgate-Book 1 of the Z & C Mysteries-Zoey and Claire Kane

Monday, November 4, 2013


What a delightful book this is. Zoey, the Mom of the pair is forever buying things that others think are not worth it. She bought a piece of property just before her daughter Claire came home to lick her wounds from both losing her job and her boyfriend in one fell swoop. Zoey loses her job as well. They go to see this property which supposedly has nothing on it and find a mansion with lots of antiques and treasures. They decide to make it into a hotel. But there seems to be a problem--the house appears to be haunted and very strange things start to happen! Will Zoey & Claire be able to solve the mystery? There is a lot of slapstick comedy in this one which I am sure you will enjoy!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Zoey Kane is known around Riverside for making risky purchases. When her daughter Claire learns a most recent investment is eighty acres on the haunted side of town, she is simply flabbergasted. Amazement takes over the whole community, however, when an old mansion is discovered deep within trees. After the estate is turned into a popular hotel, no one could have expected just how risky this purchase would be.

This book can be purchased at Amazon (at the moment the e-book is free but who knows for how long!)


About the Authors: (from Amazon)

Claire has a Masters in Journalism, was Editor for Eye Witness Magazine and can't make Irish Rum Cookies to save her life.
Zoey has dabbled in modeling, is a licensed real-estate agent, seeks for treasures (great and small), and is often underestimated.

Together, Zoey and Claire are a mother-daughter mystery solving duo. During their downtime, they dream of island men whisking them away.

(Zoey and *Claire are also fictional, and their authors are a real life mother and daughter who use their names as pseudonyms. Don't tell them that, though.)

*Award-winning author, Molly Snow, writes under Claire Kane. To see her paranormal romantic comedies, visit mollysnowfiction.blogspot.com

I want to read this one, I have to find out what happened at the hotel. I could only imagine the things that were in the mansion being that it was left alone for so long.
