STORY-LINE HALLOWEEN IS MURDER BY CAROLYN ARNOLD:

In Halloween Is Murder, Sean and Sara McKinley, wishing to support charities for children, have set up a Halloween house.  Getting a television interview by Chloe Parson, they did not expect Chloe to turn up dead the same day.  Owner’s of Pay It Forward Investigations, Sara has a “feeling” Chloe has been the victim of murder.  After heartfelt pleas to investigate, Sara persuades Sean to take the case;  they set off to find if murder‘s the cause. 

The police are still investigating the case;  which means Sean and Sara must be careful proceeding.  Through twists and turns, the McKinley’s, dare I say,  tiptoe through their investigation.  What will they find?  Was Chloe murdered?  If so, who did it, friend or foe?  My book review of Halloween Is Murder follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Once again author Carolyn Arnold created a fantastic murder mystery.  Filled with twists and turns, well-developed character, and an intriguing story-line, this book holds the reader‘s attention.  I love Sean and Sara.  Arnold filled Sean with love for Sara.  He’s willing to do almost anything to make her happy.  Sara’s a determined, strong woman;  yet, she has issues of insecurity.  With hunches, feelings, and intuition, she makes a great investigator and partner for Sean.  She uses her talents, and he uses methodical investigation and reason;  he wants evidence in his cases, she goes by her gut.  They compliment each other;  they each have a technique of crime solving.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

I found this story well-written and entertaining.  Fisher created a first class romance suspense mystery.  Her writing is clear, concise, and easy to follow, as well as, containing scenes which transition smoothly.  Fisher keep the mystery and suspense at high peak and did not reveal the murderer until the last possible moment.  With several suspects, I did not guess the correct culprit.
