This is the second book in the Courtney Archer series that came out last year by Rosemarie Ross. I really enjoy the setting that was used in the first two books, an old castle with in the Poconos. The castle had a lot of great creepiness factors when it needed to have them.
I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of cooking shows, but I’m getting a little attached to the key players in the book, so I’m always interested in seeing what they’re up to. I felt bad for poor Skylar this time being the person accused of murder. And as before, Courtney was determined to prove his innocence. She knew from the first book what being accused was like! I just read on Ms. Ross’s bio page on GR that she’s working on the third book–and it’s Christmas themed! I’m definitely going to want to read that! I linked her page above, so you can read about her if you’re not familiar with this author.
My Goodreads review:
I really enjoyed this second book in the Courtney Archer series which answered a few questions that were left standing at the end of the first book… or did it? One of those things could cause issues with Courtney’s TV career, but knowing this crew, they’ll work together and come up with something.
When Skylar, Courtney’s co-host and friend on the bake-off show became a murder suspect, she just couldn’t stay out of it. I started suspecting very early the person who ended up as the killer, although I wasn’t sure of they why and all that. Courtney’s showdown with the killer was pretty exciting and helped wrap up all the murder questions. I loved what she ended up doing to distract the person. It’ll be interesting to see how things go for a new venture that was talked about as well as Courtney’s dating life in the next book.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
