Irene Bennett Brown again captures her readers with Where Danger Danced, the second of the Celia Landrey Mystery series. This second cozy mystery is as delightful as the first.
As Celia Landrey guides her last tour group of the season through town, they are distracted by screaming and confusion at a service station where an old fuel tank is in the process of being removed to make way for a new one. To the horror of onlookers, human bones are discovered buried near the old tank.
Celia works hard to preserve her town's reputation. Pass Creek is not only where her home and livelihood, Landrey's Inn, is located, it is where she and her late husband of twenty years lived. Active in the small community, Celia is devoted to keeping the town a safe haven, a place where people want to live and visit.
The grim discovery of the skeleton sets the town to humming speculation. The Police Chief, knowing Celia's penchant for fiercely protecting her town and her determined drive to get to the bottom of a mystery, warns her to let the police do their job. In others words, stay out of it.
Even her fianc , Jake Flagg, discourages her from getting involved. It's time they set a wedding date and he strongly prefers her to concentrate on that.
But, how did those bones get into that deep hole? She couldn't let it rest. Cold cases are apt to be less important to the police than current problems. She inquires around town but the townspeople, especially the old-timers, clam up when she asks questions about whose remains have been unearthed. In many different ways, she's told to mind her own business. Many of her friends are clearly exasperated with her. What's going on?
Where Danger Danced is an entertaining, captivating read. It's a perfect sequel to Where Gable Slept. I can't wait for the next one. The novel is available in both e-book and print formats. For more information about the author, visit [...]
