"A simply sensational spooky cozy mystery!"

THIRD TIME'S A CRIME is book 3 in Diana Orgain's Love or
Money cozy mystery series. Former police officer
Thornton is back with her boyfriend Scott for another
stint in a reality TV show called "Cold Case in the
Castle". Even though Georgia and Scott are experiencing a
little turbulence in their relationship, I think readers
new to the series won't be lost because the author gives
little summaries of important events in the past. Diana
Orgain does a good job of balancing the mystery and cozy
fun with the relationship drama.
The Gothic ambiance adds extra appeal to THIRD TIME'S A
CRIME with the dilapidated castle, ghostly vibes, and
suspicious characters. In addition to all the
delightfully Gothic atmosphere, THIRD TIME'S A CRIME
features a cold case that the contestants are meant to
solve. Georgia's fellow contestants, which include a
psychic and a ghost hunter, make amazing suspects in the
mysterious deaths that happen on set. The players all
seem doubly suspicious because not only are they on site
when a murder happens, but there is so much of their
personal biographies that the TV production company keeps
under wraps. Georgia has to determine who could be a
killer, and try to figure out what is fake and what is
real. Diana Orgain includes lots of red herrings and
believable possible villains. Purported forensic
archaeologist Dr. Arch makes a great foil for Georgia as
they compete for clues and search for answers. The Golden
Castle makes a magnificently eerie backdrop to scene-
stealing, scheming, and all other kinds of shady
THIRD TIME'S A CRIME is a simply sensational spooky cozy
mystery. Georgia's BFF Becca and her father make
appearances that help lighten the mood at times, and
contribute to the plot in an enjoyable way, reminiscent
of some of my favorite Nancy Drew books. I like that this
installment has more of a resolution, one way or the
other, to Georgia's love life than the previous book. I
look forward to the next Love or
Money mystery by Diana
Orgain and finding out what's next in store for Georgia.
Ex-detective Georgia Thornton returns to reality TV in
the third mystery from the USA Today bestselling
author of A Second Chance at Murder—
POOL YOUR RESOURCES...
After two hit reality TV shows brought ex-detective Georgia
Thornton into America’s living rooms, audiences can’t get
enough of her quest for love and justice. Now producers have
come up with an all-new show set in a haunted castle in
Golden, California. Georgia and nine other contestants will
need to solve the mystery of a young woman who disappeared
at the castle in 1960.
Except there’s one rather substantial problem waiting for
everyone when they arrive: a groundskeeper is found drowned
at the bottom of the castle’s empty pool. Now Georgia and
the other contestants will need to work together, because
there’s a different sort of game afoot—and it’s not one they
can afford to lose...

Re: A simply sensational spooky cozy mystery!
This is truly useful post. I truly welcome the exertion.
I as of late ran over your blog and have been perusing
along. I thought I would leave my first remark. I don't
realize what to state with the exception of that I have.
