Two books into the Lighthouse Inn mysteries and these people feel like old friends. A fair demonstrating old-fashioned skills like blacksmithing is being held on the grounds of Hatteras West Inn. It's just a way to highlight some local craftsman and bring some tourism to the area. What could go wrong? Well, the dead body of one of the craftsmen could put a crimp in the festivities.
As with the first of the series, this book is fun and entertaining. Nothing that makes you think too hard, just a relaxing way to spend a couple of hours. Again, the characters are the main draw. The mystery does take a while to figure out but I didn't try too hard because I was enjoying all the new townspeople we were introduced to and the relationship between Alex, Elise and their friends. Good, clean, relaxing fun.
