Skiing is Murder

Skiing is Murder (McKinley Mysteries Series)

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.

Another great installment with Sean & Sara.

I think the main thing I love about these books is that they are just over 100 pages. The story does not lose out on anything by being about half the length of normal books, other than it is sometimes hard to pinpoint who is a viable suspect.

Of course you have to feel a bit sorry for Sean & Sara, they are in Vail on vacation and get sucked into solving a murder, just ahead of the police due to a piece of evidence they found that was overlooked by the police. Once you know what it is you will have a good idea of who the killer might be…or maybe not!

I look forward to more crime solving with these two.
