Southern Double Cross – Caroline Fardig

A Southern B & B Mystery, Book Three

Five of five stars given

When Quinn Bellandini is forced to tell the police that it was Parker who actually found the dead body, she knows she has to investigate to prove that he’s innocent of the murder.   The police are simply too happy to build their case against him to  bother looking for other suspects.   So as she’s done before, she joins forces with her sister Delilah to get to the bottom of things.  With help from their deceased Uncle Frank, the sisters set out to prove their friend innocent.

Fardig writes a clever tale with puzzling twists; a fast paced adventure that I finished in one sitting!   Her characters are interesting and quirky, making this B&B mystery a really great read.   Unexpected answers to shrewdly asked questions and diligent investigation lead the sister duo to the solution . . . but it wasn’t the solution I was expecting!   That’s the most enjoyable part of reading mysteries for me, the race to find the answers before the sleuths do.   And it’s that much more fun when the guilty party is not who I thought it was!

Southern Double Cross is the third entry in Fardig’s Southern B&B series, and while it can definitely stand alone, you’ll want to catch up on Quinn and Delilah’s previous escapades too.
