Val Deniston is catering the debut of Bayport’s newest bookstore—but the death of a customer is about to draw her into a real-life murder mystery …

Suzette Cripps has been occupying a spare bedroom at Val’s granddad’s house while she takes classes in this Maryland Eastern Shore town—but she’s always seemed a little secretive and fearful, and any talk about her past is a closed book.

After winning the costume contest at the Halloween-themed bookstore party, Suzette is mowed down by a hit-and-run driver—and Val and her grandfather start to wonder whether it was really an accident or if someone was after Suzette. Granddad is a little distracted by his new enterprise as a ghost-buster, but as Val talks to Suzette’s coworkers and fellow creative writing students, she grows more convinced that the dead woman’s demons weren’t imaginary—and that she needs to rip the mask off a killer …

Includes delicious five-ingredient recipes!

My Thoughts…

This is the sixth book in the Five-Ingredient Mystery series by Maya Corrigan. Although I hadn’t read any of the other books in this series, I had no problem getting stuck in and I was really thrilled with this book!

This Halloween themed cozy mystery was right up my street, with its well drawn characters, exciting plot and wonderful setting. I was especially fond of Val and her Grandad Don and how well they got along with one another. It was refreshing to have a male assistant amateur-sleuth in Grandad Don as most cozies tend to focus on female sleuths.  

I really appreciated that the author, Maya Corrigan’s use of the Halloween theme was cleverly linked with other Halloween threads such as a haunted house and the costume contest. I loved the super, well thought-out plot which was well paced and never boring. The comedic aspect to the story was very pleasing, allowing me many laugh-out-loud moments.

Crypt Suzette was a brilliant and extremely enjoyable little mystery and it’s obviously a great series as well. Established series’ sometimes become a little stale and repetitive over time but this one still seems fresh and exciting and I can’t wait to read the previous instalments. Highly recommended!

I received a complimentary copy of this novel from Great Escapes Tours at my own request. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
