⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5 stars
Absolutely delightful! I said it in my review of Book 1 (Casket Cache) but I’m compelled to do so again: I never thought a book about a funeral home or its director could be so endearing. But the Spencer Funeral Home Niagara Cozy Mystery series has captivated me. More accurately, Jennifer Spencer and her tight-knit cadre of friends and co-workers have done so.
Building on the main storyline of the first book, Winter’s Mourning sees Jennifer faced with death threats from an angry drug lord thwarted, somewhat by accident, by the virtuous and truly ‘good’ Jennifer Spencer. Watching Jennifer cope with the terror inflicted by this evil (evil I say!) man and his minions while still striving to do good and provide support to all the families who come through her funeral home’s doors was like watching the sun triumph over the darkest storm clouds. It instills a sense of peace and knowledge that good and right, when you trust in it, will always prevail. Add to that the mystery of the broken young woman Winter, who Jennifer finds bereft by the side of the road, and you have a truly mesmerizing story. I was so engrossed that I read this book cover to cover in one day. For me, this is the ultimate test of a book’s power: my absolute unwillingness to set it down until I’ve unlocked all its secrets.
While I truly enjoyed Casket Cache, Winter’s Mourning somehow delivered even more of the good stuff. To say I’m excited for the next book is an understatement.
