Vampires, Bones, and Treacle Scones by Kaitlyn Dunnett

Just the name of this town catches your eye:  Moosetookalook.  With a name like that, you wouldn't expect normal residents, would you?

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  It was published this month, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

I enjoyed this cozy mystery.  It's the story of a pair of newlyweds that are creating a "haunted house" for a fund raiser for small businesses.  The tale weaves and twists through rumors, legends, and just plain tall tales.  Blackie O'Hare used to own the place and is supposed to have buried treasure there.  No one has ever found it, is it still there?

When their preparations for Halloween night get under way, they suddenly find things missing.  And then they are returned.  The house is locked.  Where are they going and who's bringing them back? Then poor Liss finds that her skeleton for the evening has been replaced with a dead body.  The worst part is she knows him...

As you follow the tangled tale, you'll be surprised about how all the little odds and ends of life start to fit together.  It also has a very cute ending.  I'll be watching for more in this series.  It's a good read!

Happy reading.
