Intense Edge of your Seat Mystery in Moonlight Can Be Murder
Wow is the only thing I can think to say about this great book Moonlight Can Be Murder A Ned McNeil Mystery by Blanche Day Manos. I loved this book and I can not wait until the next one comes out.
Nettie McNeil gets a letter from her Uncle Javin after he gets out of prison that he wants her to come to her home town of Ednalee, OK because he needs to see her and strange things are happening. She goes and when she gets there she was looking forward to seeing him again but was terribly surprised when she finds him shot and dying. Now she is thrown into a murder and has to find out who killed her Uncle and why before she is next.
Nettie or Ned for short is a very level headed, strong willed and determined woman who is wants answers into what is happening and who murdered her Uncle. As a reader I immediately connected with her and was drawn into the mystery right along with her. I love the old Victorian home and land, it adds a dimension to the mystery and is such a important part of the story. I could just picture the house and wished to be sitting right there with Ned and her friends in front of the fire or at the kitchen table helping solve this mystery. I love a good mystery and this one is just that .
This book has so many possibilities and trying to tie all the loose ends up makes for a great puzzle to solved. I really thought I had this one figured out but then found I was only partly right and the why escaped me to the end.
This is an intense and at times emotional mystery. I could not put it down. If you like a good mystery, that keeps you on the edge of your seat and one that is full of possibilities and suspects then do not miss this book.
One of my favorite parts is when Ned sees a white figure head into her carriage house and decides to once and for all figure out what is going " Fear gave way to curiosity and a rising anger that someone or something would trespass and find it necessary to sneak around in the dark instead of coming to my door. "Please Lord, I whispered, "Protect me and help me find out what is going on." pg 148
Anger overcomes fear I can so relate to this.
Don't miss this great, spooky, intense, wonderful book. I highly recommend it.
