Clyde and Mac were all set to head on a romantic vacation to Mexico when they got side tracked by a snowstorm. Their flight to mexico being cancelled and wondering what to do Mac gets the idea of heading to a near by hotel that was once a castle, a haunted castle. When they get there they are shocked to discover that the women in their families also staying there for the weekend for knitting workshops taught by Isabelle , celebrity knitter and author.
When the hotel suddenly loses power it seems all hell has broken loose and the back up generator refuses to start with a maintenance man that dosen't know anything about fixing generators. Everyone including Linda Garrett, the owner her daughter Jessica try to make the best out of a bad situation for everyone when Linda ventures off to find her niece, Clarissa in the "Turrett Room", the very same room that was once occupied by the former resident of the castle who died under suspicious circumstances. Linda finds Clarissa dead.
With the phone lines down and being snowed in Clyde, a former police officer and Mac being a detective decide to take over the situation and start to investigate who could have murdered Clarissa. With the fear of a murderer among them. Clyde and her family have so called physic abilities but after down playing it for so long could Clyde use her abilities to find things help her solve a murder?
Clarissa was not well liked and every one had a reason to want her dead. Clyde and Mac weave through the suspects one by one to try to catch a killer hook, line and sinker.
This book had the makings of a traditional mystery but it also had the very best features that define a "Cozy Mystery" including the setting, plot, theme and the characters. Grabs your attention and won't let go even long after your finished reading. Clyde and Mac and their families were very likable and lovable especially Clyde's Aunt Vi who seemed a little annoying at first but I grew to love. When you think about the characters and want to know what happens next is the sure sign of a great mystery. I will be sure to go back to read the first two books in this series and I also can't wait to see what happens with Clyde, Mac and their families in the next Family Fortune Mystery.
