In spite of having to recover from serious injuries from her fall down a cliff with O’nan, Josiah Reynolds is back to sleuthing. This time her friend, Irene Meckler, asks Josiah to investigate the death of her nephew which was ruled accidental. Irene has her doubts.
Along with her best friend Matt, and Jake Dosh, a physician assistant hired by Josiah’s daughter, Josiah again makes the rounds of quirky characters that can only be found in the mysterious world of antebellum homes, bourbon and horse racing of Kentucky’s Bluegrass region.
At the end of the previous book Josiah goes over a forty-foot cliff with O’nan, a disgruntled cop with an axe to grind going back to his college days. Her injuries were severe in that her body was all but broken in half, broken legs, arms,jaw and teeth and she convalesces for several months.
Once she’s feeling well enough to go home and the doctors agree, she finds herself in another murder (her friend thinks)mystery which will take her again to the edge of the cliff.
I loved this book as much as the first one and couldn’t wait to turn the pages to see what mischief Josiah and her sleuthing partners get into.
