Raven's Nest bookstore, located in Finn's Harbor, Maine, things
are not quite business as usual. Owner Stephanie Quinn and
her cousin, Clara are playing detective again, and their focus
is on that instead of running the bookshop. They've even involved
employee Molly in their snooping.
Quinn is having visions again, and she's become convinced
that the death of a local man was murder. Yet the police have
ruled it was an accident, and that Scott Delwyn simply fell
off scaffolding at a construction site. Clara's "Quinn
sense" visions tell her otherwise, and she and Stephanie
feel it is up to them to prove otherwise.
this series continues to hold promise, I don't see the growth
and development I'd hoped for by the third book. To quote
the character Stephanie, "Sometimes the Quinn sense doesn't
at all." Clara's visions are usually cut short in an
abrupt manner, thus leaving her confused. She never gets enough
information to be truly helpful. Then, Clara and Stephanie
tend to go off half-cocked and without an intelligent plan.
the first book in the series, the police are left out of the
loop. Sure, they declared Delwyn's death an accident, but
in my opinion, Clara could easily have gotten her vision-delivered
information to them by email or anonymous message instead
of setting out to prove things with Stephanie and putting
them both in danger.
my lack of willing suspension of disbelief while reading this
mystery, there were elements I enjoyed. I really like the
dog, Tatters. Clara can read his mind, and I would love to
see Tatters become more involved with Clara's visions.
is a fast read, good for the beach, and would probably be
enjoyed most by a youthful reader with an interest in a light
paranormal aspect to a cozy mystery. You do not need to have
read the first two books in the series to get the most out
of Trouble Vision.
