***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
When Diega DelValle and three of her friends go on an impromptu vacation in Talkeetna, Alaska, Diega envisions an enjoyable summer break from teaching along with time to heal from a break-up.
However, even before the friends arrive, this small town on the edge of Denali National Park becomes a less than idyllic vacation spot. Gail, a Talkeetna native, dies on the mountain. Melissa, Gail’s cousin and a former student of Diega’s, arrives in Talkeetna and raises doubts about the death being accidental.
Due to Melissa’s pleas for help, Diega and her friends are thrust into an investigation of a small town and its inhabitants-an unsavory pastime that turns deadly.
This is book 3 in the Diega DelValle series and it does read as a stand alone novel but that being said I do feel (as I often to with stand alones within a series) that I may have got a little more out of it had I known the characters involved already. I felt at times that I was maybe missing some of the subtle things going on that I may have enjoyed more had I read the previous installments, but that is just the way I generally read.
Overall this gets 4 stars form me and a recommendation for mystery lovers to grab themselves a copy and see if you can manage to figure out who did it.
