5 Stars for Finding Home Again
Book 5 in the Redford Falls series is another satisfying fun read, this time with a twist of suspense. Although this story stands alone, many characters from previous books make cameo appearances which is fun, but it isn’t necessary for you to have read the prior offerings.
Jordan McKenzie feels she has found a home she never knew when she becomes the caretaker of an historic house in need of loving restoration. Used as the setting for most of the story, you’ll wish you could stay in this beautiful old mansion and explore the lush grounds surrounding the home.
As the grand opening approaches to celebrate the home becoming Redford Falls new B&B, Pearl, the matriarch and current owner of the estate, requests an intriguing gathering of family members. She’s hatched a plan to solve a mystery years in the making. Jordan is reluctantly involved in keeping the secret and the ruse has her going beyond her comfort zone and fighting her conscience especially when Pearl’s handsome nephew, Logan, shows up looking for answers of his own and the love he once felt from his Aunt Pearl.
The attraction between Jordan and Logan is quick to heat up, but denied by both. How they overcome the personal and outside huddles thrown in their path makes for an interesting read. Miska, a large and lovable dog, adds to the excitement…until he goes missing. Logan has aspirations of becoming a chef, too bad his cooking sends Jordan to the hospital. The final solving of the mysteries felt like a scene from the wonderful old film noir tropes like the Thin Man with all the suspects present as the suspense builds and some very unexpected revelations come to light.
Once again I enjoyed Darlene Fredette’s writing style and her imaginative storytelling.
