'"Your mother was cold. I worried about hypothermia." Lewi's voice carried conviction and authority, but not with total success.
"When did the cure for hypothermia become a shower for two?" Naomi's lips twitched around the edges.
"Body heat," they both replied in unison.'
This is quite a mystery; with a lot of characters and some secrets that will surprise you, no wonder we have a dead body!
This is the second book of the Big Lake Murder Mysteries, you can read it as standalone, and although there are some bad characters that come from the first book, you can follow perfectly the story.
I have to say that I am a little disappointed on how the police work in this case, they are completely useless! Emily has more contacts and detective intuition than the main detective! Maybe Lewis is too much focused flirting with Emily than discover who is the real killer...!
There's a love triangle too, between Emily and Donald Green, a bass fisherman with a very special sense of humour and the detective Lewis who is trying to catch Emily's attention. The dialogue between these three characters is funny and original, and is my favourite part of the book if I say the truth.
It was a plus that at the end of the book there are a few unsolved things on the mystery that I hope we will know more on the next... I can't wait!
This is a book for barbecue lovers and sleuth detectives. Ready for the barbecue?
