Another great mystery in the new Granny Reid mystery series

Murder in the Corn Maze (A Granny Reid Mystery Book 2)

By: G. A. McKevett

Rating: 5 of 5

I’ve just been introduced to this talented author. I have read the first book in this series and am going backwards to read the series from which this is a spin-off. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading her books and will be looking forward to more books in this series.

While this book can be read stand-alone, I highly recommend reading the first book in this series so you can understand how Stella Reid got custody of her seven grandchildren and the backyard of many of the characters.

In this story, The Reid family is part of the Halloween parade and contest. From there, they move on to the Halloween Maze at the home of the richest family in McGill, Georgia. While only the oldest actually go into the maze with Stella, they still manage to get lost. In trying to find a way out, the eldest grandchild finds a particularly gruesome skeleton that turns out to be real and not merely a Halloween scary prop.

I won’t say why Stella gets involved in solving this crime but it makes absolute sense. There are layers of clues and false leads before the truth is revealed. While I had an inkling of the whodunnit, I wasn’t sure until the last moment.

The story, while a murder mystery, is funny and heartwarming. The children are the absolute light in Stella’s eye and her purpose for living.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
