Skiing is Murder
by Carolyn Arnold
…a fast read, and endearing…
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
Another great installment with Sean & Sara.
I liked that we only knew what the McKinley’s knew as they discovered information. I enjoyed putting the puzzle together along side them.
I could not wait to read a new book of this series, these cozy mystery are short but very exciting with two great private investigators. The plot kept me on edge from start to finish. I was excited each time I got to turn the page.
There are a number of ‘out of the ordinary’ aspects to this cozy mystery – and that’s a good thing, as it helps keep the genre ‘fresh’.
I like Sean and Sara. Their characters are easy to get along with and I love their relationship. They’re both intelligent and work well together.
Filled with colorful characters and an intriguing mystery which takes advantage of its winter wonderland type setting, Skiing is Murder is a fine addition to an established series and can be enjoyed on its own.

Skiing is Murder is a delightful cozy murder mystery story that easily transports the reader to the picturesque ski slopes of Vail, Colorado, as they follow private investigators Sara and Sean McKinley’s investigation into a suspicious case of murder while on vacation.

They’re ready to hit the slopes when things go downhill…
Sean and Sara were supposed to have a relaxing vacation in Vail, but it all goes up in a puff of powder when there’s a suspicious death on the mountain. And the deceased is not just anyone; it’s Adrian Blackwell, a two-time Olympic skiing gold medalist.
Rumor has it that Adrian died in a skiing accident, but he was too skilled for Sara to accept it as fact. Though she’s convinced Adrian was murdered and she’s itching to find the killer, she doesn’t want to disappoint Sean by ruining his ski trip.
Sean has never had the ability to say no to Sara before, but this time he comes close. It takes a call from their PI firm back in Albany to change his mind. A job’s come in to investigate Adrian’s death, and his agent is the one footing the bill, leaving Sean with more questions than answers.
Yet one major problem remains: their New York State PI licenses hold no legal authority in Colorado. But they still can’t help but look into Adrian’s death on the sly. This case will definitely involve some underhanded tactics, all while trying to dodge the local police during the course of the investigation.
