Memories and Murder by Lynn Cahoon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Memories and Murder” book 10 in the ”A Tourist Trap Mystery” series by Lynn Cahoon is a quick and enjoyable read.
It’s October in South Cove, California, and the locals in the quaint resort seem to be happily pairing off in the lull before the holidays. Everyone, that is, except for Jill Gardner’s elderly aunt, who just dumped her besotted fiancé—and she won’t say why.
When Jill hosts a talk at Coffee, Books, and More on the topic of elder abuse, all that’s really on her mind is lunch. But the topic hits close to home when she discovers Aunt Jackie has been getting mysterious calls. Jill’s certain the caller is a con artist, of course, but her feisty aunt claims to understand this, though she’s still shaken—and Harrold’s still heartbroken. Who’s behind the scam and why was her aunt targeted? When a volunteer from the Senior Project is found murdered, Jill’s detective boyfriend is on the case—and it soon becomes clear no one is safe when a caller from beyond becomes a killer in their midst.
This go around Jill and her Auntie Jackie are dealing with scams, especially on older citizens. I thought Lynn did a fabulous job of highlighting potential scams that might trap anyone that isn't aware or watching what is happening to them. Now a days you get phone scams or internet scams almost daily so I was glad it showed how people prey on the elderly. It really saddens me when I hear of people abusing or taking advantage of the elderly.
I was surprised when everything came to light and who all was involved. I did suspect but then due to some clever red herrings, doubt myself. I really enjoyed this story and am Happily waiting for the next.
I requested and received an Advanced Readers Copy from the publisher and NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
