Book Review- A Reunion to Remember- (Lainswich 16) - Raven Snow

Sunday, January 28, 2018

None of the Greensmith girls had an easy time of it in school--they were shunned and bullied. So when it came time to go to a high school reunion--none of them were very pleased--but the Lanswich Inquirer run by them had to cover the event. There were three women in particular who were a clique back then--and still apparently were that approached Rowen and her cousins pretending to be nice. They did some interviews and were more then ready to leave when suddenly a dead body fell down along with a whole bunch of ballons--it was one of the women!

Ben, the sheriff (who is married to Rose-one of the Lainsich cousins)--asked Rowen to walk the scene to see if she could find out anything using her psychic ability to "talk" to ghosts. No such luck. There was a new detective that was working in the sheriff's department--a total non believer and not a very nice person! He really tried to get in the way of Rowen finding out who committed the murder.

Intuition, rather then witchy powers, and good old fashioned talking to people ultimately got the answer. There were so many suspects and so many secrets in that little town I bet you won't put this one down until the very last page.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Rowen never much cared for high school. None of her family did. Life in Lainswich was never easy for a girl from the Greensmith family. This was especially true as a teenager. Kids can be cruel and high school can be a nightmare.

Rowen didn’t want to go to the first official Lainswich High reunion. Unfortunately, what she wants doesn’t much matter. The paper she helps run with her cousins is covering the event. That means everyone has to go.

The night is a terrible one, full of old bullies and memories best left forgotten. Things, however, get a bit more exciting when a dead body drops onto the dance floor. It’s someone from her past, she discovers, someone she’s never been particularly fond of. Despite all that, Rowen must still launch herself head first into the investigation. As cruel as the victim may have been, they still didn’t deserve to be murdered… probably.

Finding the answers she needs is going to be a challenge. Not only will she be forced to slog through a sea of all those who bullied her in high school, but there’s also a new detective in town, and he’s intent on making life for Rowen and her family even more difficult than it already is. Oh, well. No one ever said being a Greensmith was easy.

Sixteenth Volume of the Lainswich Witches Mystery Series. Approx. 50,000 words in length. It is a standalone (reading prior or future volumes not required to enjoy the book, no cliffhanger)

This one sounds fun, mysterious and witch-y! I always like when the underdog wins or the bully gets their just apatite, although there is nothing just about being murdered. I'm sure Rowan will try to be the better person and hopefully the bullies realize how wrong they were about the Lanswitch witches.

This sounds like an interesting read. I love reading things that keep me guessing... I wonder who really did it!
