"Schemes & Bad Dreams" by Trixie Silvertale

Mitzie's Day starts badly when the store alarm is accidentally set off & the disarm code doesn't work. Then instead of the expected Sheriff Erick being the one to respond to the alarm, it's Deputy Candy who shows up at her back door in response to the alarm. After that an old friend from back before she'd moved to Pin Cherry Harbor steps off the bus. And things seem to spiral downhill from there.

This was the 15th book in the Mitzi Moon Cozy Mystery series, and a very captivating one that was extremely hard to put down. I am definitely enjoying this series and while I don't want to give away too much, this book involves a kidnapping, abuse, and touches on a suicide and other often sensitive subjects as an important part of the story. As such, this book does provide a warning that it may be a trigger point some people and also provides the National Suicide Hotline phone number.


But if you enjoy cozy mysteries or have enjoyed any of the other Mitzy Moon books, I hope you won't skip this one as it is definitely worth reading. And if you're new to the series, while parts of it will likely make more sense after reading the beginning of the series, it is still very easy to quickly pick up on the important aspects of the series. (Thus far I've only managed to read a couple of the books in this series myself, but they've been well worth it, even out of order.) Recommended.
