This suspense/mystery is based on the bestselling Ravenhearst Game from Big Fish Games, a mystery game set in the fictional English seaside town of Blackpool. I have never had the chance to play this particular game (where have I been?), but mysteries always intrigue me. I was very excited to devour this one. After reading the book, now I want to go and try my hand at the game.
Blackpool is linked to a famous train wreck, a lost child and a valuable cache of paintings gone missing during WW II. Hmm... 70 years later, in step a pair of outsiders looking for a simpler life, Michael & Molly Graham. In an attempt to shoot a documentary film about the Blackpool wreck, the couple becomes tangled up in the mystery... a murder, a break-in and many questions. This cozy little town is covering up some dark secrets and the Grahams can't seem to get away from them.
I enjoyed tagging along with the amateur sleuths as they tried to untangle the web in this quiet little town. Confident and likable characters helped me to jump right into the action, and a good does of action and plot twists made it a hard read to put down! I had many different hypothesis before it was all done. This was the perfect book to curl up with as the weather turns colder.
I can't wait to read the next installment of the series (this is the first of four), but it was also a fabulous stand-alone read.
