15 Minutes of Flame (Nantucket Candle Maker Mystery #3) by Christin Brecher

I have read and reviewed the previous two books of the series on this blog earlier: #1#2

I liked the first two adventures of the series, the first one better than the second. Although I am going to be rating this the same on the websites ( because of a woeful lack of .5 stars being available on Goodreads and other apps), I liked this best.
I highly recommend reading the previous ones before getting here just to keep the feel of the community alive, but even if you start the series here, you will not go amiss. We have our Nantucket candle maker, Stella gearing up for Halloween season. She is even helping kit up a house to be the scary sideshow. The same house incidentally that she lost her heart to in the previous book.
One thing newbies should know of our protagonist is the confidence born out of growing up in the same town all her life. Her curiosity drives her into investigating an open door and then in a random sequence of events uncovering a skeleton. This, in turn, brings some old scandals to the forefront and has (almost)everyone involved.
It was an intriguing concept to investigate an older crime by people who do not have the technical background to do so while at the same time, that very investigation might be the cause for a crime in the present. It was well executed and kept me hooked until I read the end. I am still not sold on the main couple, but am ignoring the urge to focus and/or harp on it!
I look forward to the next strange predicament that Stella will land herself in, given the way this book ended.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review was entirely based on my own reading experience.
