Halloween creeps in, bringing costumes, carbs, and a corpse or two…

Estes Park is bustling with fall tourists as Winifred and Katie deck out the Cozy Corgi Bookstore and Bakery, while corgi mascot, Watson, helps in his own special way—snacking, napping, and being his adorable grumpy self.

When Fred and Leo’s date at the romantic restaurant, Pasta Thyme, leads to an invitation of a murder scene, instead of ghouls and goblins, Fred is haunted by ghosts from the past. Death might lurk around every corner as Fred investigates motives of infidelity, jealousy, and the dark shadow cast by a crime syndicate.

By the time Halloween night arrives, not everyone will get out alive…

(This culinary cozy mystery includes a recipe for luscious tiramisu.)

Mildred Abbott has had me hooked with the Cozy Corgi Mystery stories! We have woven our way through the town of Estes with many secrets, murders and mysteries……But I have to say, Ms Abbott I think this one is one of the best.

Estes is a great place to be during the Halloween season and all are readying for the children Trick or Treating. But we are first greeted by Uncle Percival rushing into Fred’s home to do an emergency make-over, after being told by Katie that Leo has asked her out to that really expensive Italian restaurant Pasta Thyme!! You know the one that Branson had taken her to in the past…..

Is it time in their relationship for Leo to ask????? I really don’t want to give away spoilers….So this review might be shorter than my usual…….But I must say Ms. Abel that you have certainly expanded your story arc writing this book; maybe to continue this series for another century!

It’s Halloween in the Mountains , and the pumpkins are out…..There is a nip in the air……..a murder to be solved…….and a big fat can of worms has been opened. I love your books and cannot wait too try the new recipe…….Until the next story….I await breathlessly!!!
