An Unsaintly Season in St. Augustine ~ Even on vacation, Kate Huntington can’t seem to avoid other people’s troubles. While in St. Augustine, Florida for the Christmas holidays, she and her PI husband get caught up in trying to find a friend of Kate’s parents who’s gone missing. They soon discover that this isn’t just a case of a senior citizen wandering off. Can they reunite the elderly man with his wife before Christmas, or will others who mean him harm find him first?
Cruel Capers on the Caribbean ~ Join Kate for a Caribbean cruise and a locked room mystery. On board, she befriends socialite Cora Beall, who is having relationship problems. When Cora’s corpse is found in a cabin secured from the inside, the ship’s captain assumes it’s suicide. Kate is skeptical as the evidence points more and more toward murder. But how did the killer get out of the locked room?
Ten-Gallon Tensions in Texas ~ Town secrets, an old nemesis, and a corpse–what else will show up at Kate’s husband's high school reunion in Texas? New disputes are heaped on top of old animosities, tempers flare and Skip ends up stumbling upon a dead body. Trying to uncover the murderer leads Kate and Skip to uncover some long-buried secrets instead, and their names just might end up on the killer’s must-die list.
An Unsaintly Season.
Looking for a change of pace from reading novels, I purchased this Kate Huntington novella series. I found this story to be a smooth reading experience with the same expertise this author uses in her full length novels. One of the things I like about this author is how she seamlessly brings new characters into the story. Many authors take too much space and too many words to do what Ms. Lamb does with ease. In one or two sentences the reader knows all they need to know about the character being introduced into the story. The plot was complex, but the ending was totally unexpected! Being a Novella, you will not put this down until you have finished it, as did I.
