What a great addition to this series Since this is book six I am highly invested in the Snowden family by this point enjoying all of their ups, downs, and inner moments This time Julia is asked to look into the murder of a billionaire at the request of Quentin though none of the family are suspects I think she just can t help herself by this point so she agrees What follows is a fascinating mystery that is just full of little clues with enough twists to keep you guessing until you finally learn who the real culprit is I especially liked the tie in to the events of the last book as well as all of the character growth as it made me feel like part of the family A must read for cozy mystery fans I really enjoyed reading it so I give it 4 5 stars.
