Jeff Resnick is definitely out of his element when he and Maggie take a working vacation at a quaint Vermont inn. For most people, the chance to spend time with a beautiful woman in a romantic, isolated setting would be a plus, but the moment Jeff crosses the Sugar Maple Inn's threshold, his sixth sense warns him that someone is about to meet a violent death.
His anxiety intensifies when he travels on one of the local roads and he is nearly overwhelmed by feelings of impending doom. Ultimately, Jeff can only find respite in his brother Richard's presence and it is only after one of the inn's guests is murdered that Richard reluctantly becomes a third wheel on Jeff and Maggie's trip. With their own lives at stake, Jeff, Maggie, and Richard must use all their wits and skill to bring a ruthless killer to justice. And if they don't, one of them might just become the next victim.
I like the characters alot and the narrator is good. The language was not needed as far as i was concerned to express the panic, pain nor passion experienced.
Excellently written and superbly performed by Steven Barnett. I am almost finishing the last two books and I hope l l Bartlett will come up with more books in this series. I do so like the characters in the series especially the two brothers, Jeff and Richard.
