Darling is back and finds herself in a sticky situation when
good friend Ves Roundtree asks Annie for help after having
an accident that she swears was anything but. As Ves tells
it, someone is out to kill her so they can cash in on her
fortune, an estate left to her from her brother that is to
be divided among many of the islanders upon her death. After
one of the accident induced suspects turns up dead and Ves
goes missing, Annie and Max get in on the hunt to nail down
exactly what is going on before it is too late!
was my first introduction to Carolyn Hart and the Death on
Demand mystery series, which has had a nice long run! Walking
on My Grave is the 26th book in the series and I am sad
to say, the final book in the series. I have to say the book
was slow to start and it took me awhile to really get into
the story, but I am glad that I held on because once I hit
halfway there was no turning back and I was hooked right up
until the end, which wrapped up the story, and apparently,
the series nicely. I have to say this mystery is more of a
traditional mystery than my favorite cozies, but I very much
enjoyed this story and the twists and turns that it took.
Carolyn Hart is a wonderful story teller and she paints a
beautiful illustrated picture with her words. I know this
series will be missed!
