This is the fourth book in the Sloan Krause series by Ellie Alexander who also writes the long running Bakeshop series as well as books under the name of Kate Dyer-Seeley. I’ve enjoyed that the Sloan Krause series has an ongoing personal mystery for Sloan much like the mystery that ran through the Pacific Northwest series she wrote as Kate. Sloan got hit with quite a bit of information lately about her past, so the next book is going to be interesting to see what she does with it or uncovers.
My Goodreads review:
It was great to get back to Leavenworth and the Nitro pub for another visit with Sloan, Garrett, Kat and crew. They sure had a disagreeable guest this time while they were only doing a soft opening of their B&B part of the pub, but with the IceFest coming up, they were the only place in town that had any rooms at all. There were actually two mysteries, but they eventually connected. I would never have guessed part of the one or the why of the killer. I had a feeling about who the killer was and who I wanted it to be lol.
Sloan’s own side mystery was really coming together with a visit from Sally who’d already dropped some disturbing news to her last time. This time she had some concrete notes talking about this subject, something that was very devastating to Sloan. I’m not sure what I would have done in her place, because the news was pretty wild. It didn’t leave with a mini cliffhanger as it’s been doing, although we’re still left to wonder what the truth really is about her past and the people involved in it. It’ll be an interesting ride, since the Sloan we all know and love isn’t going to stop until she’s got the answers she’s looking for.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
