really liked it

This cozy, humorous story has it all—a murder to be solved, a cast full of likeable characters, and even a bunch of small, mysterious white creatures. Naked leprechauns? Aliens? And what does a triceratops have to do with the story’s events?
The story begins with Morgan Iverson at the shooting range. She, along with the help of her friends, is learning how to fire a rifle. They hear a great explosion coming from further up the hill from where her rock shop sits. This explosion is followed by shouting and more gunshots. Her neighbor, the recluse Eustace Day has been killed. The police insist that he was the victim of his own booby traps. But his granddaughter insists it was murder. Morgan, along with the help of her newspaper reporter who is running for city office, Kurt Willard, decides to tackle the case.
The mystery takes a back seat until about the middle of the book, but is always present. Then the twist and turns come, surprising the reader. In the meantime, the reader is engaged in the lives of Morgan and her family and friends. They are such fascinating characters, that I didn’t mind waiting for the mystery to be solved.
Dilts’ easy flowing style makes for an easy and fast read. It’s a book to definitely enjoy. I know this is the third in the series, and I plan to buy the first two. Yes, the book is that entertaining.
