A good read and an enjoyable entry in the Susan Henshaw series, but not worth the $15.00 price being charged here.

Susan and Kathleen help the local sheriff do some investigating, but they become more confused as they gather information. One of the girls disappears and the mystery deepens. Finally there is a climactic scene and the killer is revealed. This is one of Valerie Wolzein's better books and has quite a complex resolution. Readers who enjoy cozies will like this one.

A murder in Maine on the 4th of July.

Susan Henshaw and her friend Kathleen Gordon travel to the Henshaw family's summer house in Maine. A huge house has been constructed next door. The house belongs to a very troubled family. Susan and Kathleen find the owner of the house dead in the living room the next morning. It turns out that he is the brother of the original owner of the house and present husband of his brother's ex-wife. Shortly thereafter, the oldest daughter of the family disappears. Susan and Kathleen are asked to help find out what happened. I found the book to be well written and the characters believable and interesting as well as quirky. This is a great beach or leisure book.

This was a great book

I really enjoyed this book. It has gotten me hooked on mysteries and I can't wait to read Valerie Wolzien's other books. If you like mysteries, you'll love this book. The main character Susan Henshaw is great, too. The story was easy reading and it kept me on the edge of my seat...I didn't want to put it down!
