A Deadly Brew by Lynn Cahoon

The house has set vacant for 15 years.  Now as a Halloween challenge, they are going to be locked in for two days to see if it is haunted.  You wouldn't see me doing that...

Lyrical Books and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It is being published today.

There is a ghost.  There's an old mystery, too.  As they snoop through what remains of the house, they  find she had a baby.  She gave it away.  She wasn't married, had no boyfriends, so how did she get pregnant?  

When they puzzle it out, it's almost too late for them.  It's a good thing they had their boyfriends with them or more would have died.

This cozy wasn't too scary.  It made me feel sorry for the woman who had lived there alone.  She was raped, had to deal with an unwanted pregnancy and then was murdered.  Not a good life.  But her killer is going to jail now...

Sounds like a chilling and sad story.

The sad part had happened years ago but it was an unsolved mystery that they managed to solve so it was an interesting read.
