I’ve read another book in this series and was looking forward to seeing old friends and getting to know some new characters.
The story takes place in Michigan and that’s a big plus as I grew up there. Always fun to see if you recognize any of the locations.
It was so fun getting to know Clyde. She, yes, Clyde is a woman, is quirky, tough, sometimes naive, and very impetuous. She keeps you on your toes and sometimes you’ll want to shake her. LOL
It’s almost time for the Zombie Fun Run. Clyde waited too long to start getting in shape and wishes she’d chosen to be one of the zombies instead of a runner now. Hopefully she won’t be the only one struggling when the zombies come after them.
She also has some unexpected guests to contend with too. Clyde’s sister, Grace has shown up, along with her husband. Grace hasn’t set foot in Crystal Haven in many years, shunning the town and it’s claims of paranormal talent.
Clyde’s radar is telling her something bad is coming, and sure enough, someone is found dead during the zombie race. All the way dead.
With startling secrets revealed, there ‘s a plethora of suspects to choose from. Time to put the special talents to work and find the killer before more bodies turn up.
What a fun story. I love the paranormal element. It would be fun to live in a town where everyone plies their abilities. All those shops with the unusual wares to peruse. I could pick up some special teas and get my fortune told on any given day.
I’m huge on stories driven by genuine characters, and their are plenty here. The author throws in some ringers so the mystery isn’t easily solved. There’s some romance, not too much, just enough to make you smile. And something’s always about to happen.
Welcome to Crystal Haven. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the visit as much as I did.
Psychic Clyde Fortune and her zany family are back in the fourth in the national bestselling series from the author of A Fright to the Death.
Former cop and novice psychic Clyde Fortune finds herself in a race for justice when a Zombie Fun Run turns deadly…
All of Crystal Haven, Michigan, is psyching up to participate in a Zombie Fun Run organized by Clyde’s nephew Seth, but Clyde is fretful about the undead festivities. For one thing, her sister, Grace, has unexpectedly returned to town after fifteen years. For another, Clyde has the nagging feeling that something is about to go wrong…
When one of the zombie runners is found murdered and then Grace disappears, Clyde realizes her grim premonition is dead-on. Now, she and her police detective boyfriend Mac must find a ghoulish murderer before someone points the finger at Grace. And when a tangled web of family secrets and old grudges combines with a mysterious case of stolen diamonds, even someone as quick-witted as Clyde might not be able to outrun a killer…
