My Review

It’s another great adventure for travelers, turned amateur sleuths, Kendell and Pauline. They are off to Peru, with a lay over in Texas. Unfortunately, a storm keeps them trapped in Texas for longer than they expected. They are invited to spend their time on a ranch with two lovely families.

As they hide out in the ranch’s cellar, the storm hits and one of the small group is left dead. It’s not long before they realize it’s another murder mystery for Kendell and Pauline to try and solve.

This is the fourth book in the Flight Risk series. Each book in this series can really stand alone, but it’s more fun to read them in order. I have to admit, I enjoyed the first three books more than this one, but it was still a fun mystery to try and figure out. It just felt a bit slower than the previous books to me.

Kendell and Pauline are a fun pair, although it’s a bit crazy how many dead bodies they have found in such a short time. That’s what makes it so much fun.

It’s a short read filled with a few twists and turns along the way. We also meet some new characters, but Kendell and Pauline, along with Pauline’s dog Dot, are the main stars of this series. The next stop is Mississippi.
