STORY-LINE WICKED, MANOR, AND MURDER BY LOTTA SMITH:

In Wicked, Manor, And Murder, Amanda Meyer and Rick Rowling’s wedding is around the corner.  Busy with wedding plans, Amanda’s surprised when her best friend and bridesmaid Fiona reveals she has seen her dead Granny.  Not only did she see her, Granny gave her a message that she was in grave danger.  Fiona contacted Amanda and Rick to investigate and find who’s placing her in imminent danger.

What they find rivals Hollywood; murder, dark secrets, affairs, ghosts, and danger; along with zany characters and interfering spirits.  My book review of Wicked, Manor, and Murder follows.

Amanda, Rick, and Brian, are back in Smith’s latest installment of the Paranormal In Manhattan Mystery Series.  A standalone read, I would recommend reading the earlier books as they will enhance your reading experience and enjoyment of the characters.

Wicked, Manor, And Murder, Book 7, filled with quips, fun, ghostly presence, deep dark secrets, mystery, and murder, hits the mystery and paranormal mark.  Including many twists and turns, Smith held the plot close to her chest, and revealing the who, what, when, and how, as needed in the story-line.
