“A Sticky Situation” by Jessie Crockett

Jessie Crockett has written another Sugar Grove Mystery novel.  “A Sticky Situation” is a mystery novel set in Sugar Grove, New Hampshire during the sugar tapping season.  Dani Greene belongs to the family who runs Greener Pastures and is a pillar family of the community.  The annual Maple Festival is coming up and preparations are underway for this celebration.  Her family has also generously donated money to have the old opera house refurbished.  During the renovations, a skeleton has been unearthed in the basement.  This skeleton has been identified as Spooner Duffy who disappeared thirty years ago and who was thought to have taken the money from that year’s festival.  Dani is helping the investigation, off the record, to find out who did the deed.

I started this book, but didn’t finish it because I really could not get into the story.  There were just too many characters involved.  Family members, community members, festival members, and many more were just too hard to keep track of.   I guess I didn’t have the perseverance necessary to complete the book.

I received a free print copy of the book from NightOwlReviews.com in return for my honest opinion of the novel.
