Exciting action on the Rez! A brand new sleuth sorts out clues from an 1830s world!
Photographer Cassandra Cassidy has left her big city life behind in New York and is just getting settled in a small town in Minnesota.
She wasn’t really sure what she would find at the Prairie River Trappers’ Rendezvous but was hoping to take enough good pictures to sell so she could pay her rent. The last thing she expected to find was a dead body. A body of someone she knew and really hated. Then to find herself as one of the suspects really put things in a new light. She decided it was up to her to track down the killer before she found herself totally out of the picture.
A very interesting mystery with a historical twist. The Rendezvous took us back in time and gave us a glimpse of traditions of days gone by. The re-enactors try to remain in character but after a body is found their true character is revealed giving Cassandra a plethora of suspects.
Cassandra came alive to me but Deputy Shaw drove me crazy. Young and new to the job is no excuse for his bubbling stupidity. I really liked Marty, I would love to have him for my landlord. There is plenty of room for all the characters to evolve and a little romance to be added to future installments.
This debut is a light, quick, entertaining whodunit from an author that shows much promise. I look forward to more of Cassandra Cassidy’s escapades.
