Trick or Deceit
by Shelley Freydont
Another good addition to a fun series.
Shelley creates the perfect small town that you wish you lived in. I felt right at home in Celebration Bay from the very start. Why can’t more towns be like the ones in cozy mysteries and Debbie Macomber novels?
~A Chick Who Reads
With parties, decorations, fun food and murder you will be trapped in this book from the first page.
~Shelley’s Book Case
I am a Halloween addict, even better with a cozy mystery to solve.
I enjoy Shelly Freydont’s writing. Her books never disappoint. I get lost in them for hours at a time. The characters are wonderful and the mystery was not easy to solve.
TRICK OR DECEIT is the perfect book to read for the season…You’re going to love it!
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
This mystery is well written, with dialogue that moves the story along at a brisk pace. The characters were defined, and descriptions were especially strong. The mystery aspect was well done, and kept me guessing until the book’s conclusion.
~View from the Birdhouse
Once I started reading this one, I couldn’t put it down. Freydont has a writing style that pulls you in and leaves you guessing right up until the end.

This October in Celebration Bay, you can’t swing a black cat without hitting a haunted house. There are three finalists in the contest for the town’s official Haunted House, and ten thousand dollars will go to the winner, with the rest of the contributions and proceeds funding a new community center. Event coordinator Liv Montgomery has invited her friend Jonathan Preston, the debonair CEO of a philanthropic organization, hoping he will award a grant to the center.
But after the Museum of Yankee Horrors wins first place, the transformed Victorian boarding house is vandalized … and among scattered mannequins of Hester Prynne, Lizzie Borden, and the Headless Horseman, a real dead body is found—one of the contest judges. Now in addition to playing host to Jon, Liv has to play detective and coordinate the clues to unmask a self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner.
