Trick or Deceit

A Celebration Bay Mystery, #4

I love Halloween and I would love to visit Celebration Bay for a contest like in this book. I enjoyed that this story has elements of witches and a coven. But the real fun part of this book is the mystery and finding out who the murderer is. This book had great little snippets of small town life throughout its pages and I cannot wait for the next book in the series. I do hope that Liv gets a love interest soon and I know who it might be! I also loved the cover and the dog, Whiskey! I am giving this book a 4.5 stars a Top Pick.

Book Blurb for Trick or Deceit

The author of Independence Slay invites readers back to Celebration Bay for Halloween festivities with more tricks than treats…

This October in Celebration Bay, you can’t swing a black cat without hitting a haunted house. There are three finalists in the contest for the town’s official Haunted House, and ten thousand dollars will go to the winner, with the rest of the contributions and proceeds funding a new community center. Event coordinator Liv Montgomery has invited her friend Jonathan Preston, the debonair CEO of a philanthropic organization, hoping he will award a grant to the center.

But after the Museum of Yankee Horrors wins first place, the transformed Victorian boarding house is vandalized ... and among scattered mannequins of Hester Prynne, Lizzie Borden, and the Headless Horseman, a real dead body is found—one of the contest judges. Now in addition to playing host to Jon, Liv has to play detective and coordinate the clues to unmask a self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner.
