$10 Paypal-1-WW and 2nd prize of choice of ONE McKinley novella books 1-10-Halloween is Murder-CAROLYN ARNOLD-Ends 10/29

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Although I have read other novels by Carolyn Arnold before-I never read one in this series which features ex police Sean and Sara McKinley. It seems that they got married after leaving the police force. Sean also came into a LOT of money so that neither had to ever work again. However they started a PI business but with a catch-all profits went to a children's charity! They had a couple of others who helped them--and they were --well let's just say interesting to say the least.

In this novella Sean and Sara had put together a haunted house and charged a nominal amount for admission--they paid for the bulk of it out of their own pockets. The description was really good and I felt like I was there! Of course there was a murder. Sara, being very intuitive would not let it go--Sean--well---but they took on the case. But who would want to murder a reporter and why--and how? It almost appeared to be a death of natural causes-----could they solve it?

Being a novella this book is not all that long but will keep your attention until the very end. There are some very comedic sequences as Sara convinces Sean that they have to figure this one out!! This definitely can be read as a stand alone, but you may find yourself wanting to read all the others in this series as well.


Beware of all that goes bump in the night…

Sean and Sara McKinley are excited about the haunted house they’ve set up as a Halloween charity fund-raiser, but things take a ghoulish turn when the reporter covering their story is found dead. With the media keeping mum about how she died, Sara’s curiosity is piqued, and she convinces Sean to take on the investigation through their PI firm.

But this case is not without its challenges. The police are actively investigating it, as well, and it’s not even clear that the woman was murdered. It will take a little cloak-and-dagger, dress-up, and finesse for the McKinleys to get to the bottom of it, but they aren’t the kind to give up.

As they troll for leads and work through the skeletons in the reporter’s closet, they unearth a few suspects, but they’ll need to carve out the whole truth if they’re going to find her killer. If they do so fast enough, there might even be time for a little trick-or-treating.

Available to buy from...... 

What to expect from the McKinley Mysteries:

Romance. Humor. Murder. Are you looking for a murder mystery without all the graphic violence and foul language? Something that you can enjoy in an afternoon and walk away feeling good about afterward? How about a dash of humor and romance? If so, meet former detectives Sean and Sara McKinley. When a billionaire leaves them all his money, they no longer have to work, but they find themselves sticking to what they’re good at—solving murders. Undercover, off the books, and around the world, they’ll get to the bottom of things…and romance it up along the way.

Oh probably a purple people eater from the 60's. This novella sounds like a romantic, fun interesting mystery. It would be festive because it is almost Halloween time.

Haha.. I'm too old to dress up for Halloween! I might dress up my dog :)

I would dress as Vampiress. I appreciate Halloween tradition and recognize that Halloween is supposed to be scary. I prefer to stick to the basics

I don't dress up but if I had to I'd probably go as a witch.
