An Old Fashioned Murder (A Moonshine Mystery) by Carol Miller. New York: Minotaur Books, 2016. 217 pages. ****
A party weekend at a redecorated Inn turns deadly when one beloved guest is killed during a record snowstorm. The sheriff is unable to navigate the snow covered roads to investigate and so amateur sleuth town baker owner at Sweetie Pies,, Daisy, and her date, Drew Alcott, soon discover that people aren't who they seem and all of the guests are suspects. Who can they trust and who has a secret to hide? The power goes out and another guest is murdered before a motive surfaces. Plot twists with a splash of Aunt Emily's moonshine adds to the intrigue.
Very entertaining and a fun "who done it." I have not read the first two in the series and it didn't seem to matter to the story line. This is the third book in the Moonshine Mystery series. (Bk #1 Murder and Moonshine, Bk #2 A Nip of Murder) The story ends leaving the reader wondering what next, so there is sure to be a fourth book in this series. I will definitely go back and read the other two and look forward to book 4.
I received a free copy from NetGalley for a review.
