“If I had just kept my nose in my book – if only I hadn’t looked up when I heard the crows.”
The Fundy Vault is the latest release in a mystery series that follows criminologist, Rosalind. In this second installment she has rented a cottage on Minas Basin in Nova Scotia, where she plans to explore ideas for her next theatre production. However, soon after her arrival she spots a body, which she witnesses being retrieved by a mysterious helicopter/team. She calls in her old sleuthing partner, McBride who ends up disappearing during their investigation and Rosalind is left to search for clues and figure out the truth.
I very much enjoy a good mystery novel, especially in the form of a series that I can follow and look forward to new releases. The main thing that draws me into a series is the compelling nature of the characters who carry the story and piece together the mystery. From the beginning of this novel it is clear that it has those kind of characters, ones that will interest you and have you turning the pages to see what will happen and where the story will go. The setting in Nova Scotia is lovely and it is wonderful to explore that particular region through the descriptions and the wonderful way the author brings it to life. A thoroughly enjoyable novel and a series I look forward to reading more of and following in the future.
