Book Review-Old Friends and New, Another Murder -Christa Nardi

Thursday, July 7, 2022

Poor Max--he is definitely an absent minded professor with a not so cool temper! He threatened his neighbor in public--and now he is under suspicion for murder!! The only one who can calm him down is Sheridan Hendley. She knows that he is incapable of murder much less drug smuggling! In trying to solve this case she ends up getting hurt. There are twists and turns aplenty in this one and I for one could not put it down until the very end!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

A touch of nostalgia, good friends, and murder. When a former colleague is implicated in his neighbor’s demise, Sheridan Hendley returns to Cold Creek to prove his innocence. Annoying as Max can be, she can’t imagine the quirky professor is capable of murder. Unfortunately, not everyone shares her opinion. Of course, it doesn’t help that Max threatened his neighbor in a public place soon before the man was murdered. Or that the victim’s drug shipments had a habit of turning up on Max’s doorstep. Only as Sheridan asks more questions, she again puts a target on her back. Twists and complications make this an enjoyable read.
