Book Review

 Georgia finds herself once again supplementing her income with doing yet another stint on reality show. But what's a girl to do when her career in the San Francisco Police Department has been left high and dry and no where to go. Along with her boyfriend, Scott and her best friend, Becca she has landed her a spot on a show called Cold Case in the Castle. Along with nine other contestants they have been set the task of solving a fifty year old murder.

 Once on set and with the cameras rolling, Georgia and Scott are sent in a dire game of cat and mouse. Not only is the castle supposedly haunted and seeking justice but there is other sinister factors at work. It seems Georgia has been targeted in more ways then one and with more then just the end prize to lose. Along with the show Georgia will also have to face personal sacrifices and potential losses.

Although once Georgia has set her sights on solving this mystery nothing will stand in her way. Not the show, the producer, her boyfriend or the menacing individual stalking her.

 I thoroughly enjoyed this story, it is very fast paced and mixes the right amount of deceit, investigation, drama and romance. I found the characters likable and engaging. Georgia is fascinating, strong willed and human, she has her moment sof self doubt but forges on. I also enjoyed, Cheryl (she was the producer) sometimes you need a no none sense woman to head the team. And I also liked Kyle, he may have played a minor role but he was great to lightened the mood.
