Margaret and Louise travel to Thunder Bay, Ontario to participate in an unusual retreat. Soon after they arrive, someone murders a businessman in the community. Louise, up for the challenge and Margaret, a little more restrained, find themselves doing a bit of detective work while meeting new friends and enjoying Thunder Bay.
Oh my goodness! Louise and Margaret seemed like such unlikely friends to me, but hey, it worked for them. Louise is quirky and Margaret is more sensible with just the right amount of sarcasm. These two are great and I found myself laughing throughout the story.
The author did a great job creating the atmosphere of Thunder Bay. I do agree with Margaret, the retreat was out there!
I thought the art and the music created such a sublime atmosphere and Margaret’s adventure to the lake was fun. The author’s description of the cabin had a soothing quality. I could see the cabin sitting comfy near the lake, smoke coming out of the chimney and the scent of the burning wood ~ ah, wonderful. To savor the atmosphere. *sigh* She described the canoe ~ with man and dog ~ gliding across the water so well. I want to go there! 🙂
This was the first time I had read a book by this author and I enjoyed it. 4****stars.
