Goose in the Pond by Earlene Fowler

On the back of book:  Hoping to relax after solving a murder in Wichita, Kansas, Benni and her new husband Gabe Ortiz are back in San Celina, California, But while Benni is jogging in the park, she happens upon the dead body of a library storyteller.  It’s an odd and disturbing scene-the woman is still dressed in her Mother Goose costume, lying face down in the lake.  

Benni’s investigation takes her inside the Storyteller’s Guild,. where she finds out that Mother Goose was telling more than fairy tales.  She was capable of airing the kind of secrets that destroy lives-and inspire revenge…

My thoughts: 

Benni and Gabe’s relationship was kind of put to the test in this book.  With so many uninvited house guests.  Dove is always funny and upbeat. Some of the things that come out of her mouth are so funny and such wisecracking!  Dove and her sister are having what I feel is a unique fight.  What are the true intentions of Gabe’s son, Sam? Is he being honest to Benni and Gabe? Will the father and son ever make amends?  I sure hope the father/son relationshiip works out. Who killed Mother Goose? A storyteller or someone else in her life?  So many suspects with motives, who did it for sure?  The ending kind of blew my mind.  I can’t wait to read the next book.  I am interested in see what other problems Benni and Gabe run into and to see how their marriage fairs!

I gave this book 4 STARS on Goodreads.
