Chick lit, Mystery

Three Shots to the Wind by Sherry Harris

This continues to be an entertaining series. Chloe has had a hard couple of months. She has been embroiled in many more mishaps than she would have liked. Although Chloe is now almost a local, she has an unknown past. This past is to catch up to her in this instalment.
We only got a brief glimpse of what our engaging protagonist left behind when she moved to honour a dead friend. We finally get the full narrative.
The plot begins in a curious fashion, with someone wooing Chloe and that someone is soon found dead.
In these books, the lead suspect is never our amateur detective. It is usually a person close to them, and our central character works tirelessly to save this other person. This was no different in this context. I did not enjoy the randomness of the suspect pool or the behaviour of all the new people, but the end result was the reason why I liked this book best. I guessed the twist a little into the second half, but I felt I enjoyed the reveal rather than bored by it since I had already called it. This last part is quite rare.
A few more exciting moments in this added to the overall ambience. The foundation of this series is strong, and it continues to build well on it. I would recommend this to fans of the genre.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
