A Lonely Way to Die

A Utah O’Brien Mystery

When a stranger dies, secrets come to life …

When she was still in high school, Sonje McCrae left this small Minnesota town, changed her name, and never came back—until now.

Less than twenty-four hours after her return, Utah O’Brien finds Sonje’s body under six inches of new snow. The sheriff calls it death by misadventure—a fancy way of saying it’s not his problem.

Utah thinks the sheriff is wrong. For the sake of the two children Sonje left behind, Utah is compelled to find out what really happened.

As she and her friends dig into the unlikely details of Sonje’s life and death, they uncover some of the town’s most closely guarded secrets—and the most shocking secret of all involves Utah’s own family.

Now that she knows that secret, her life will never be the same—but does this discovery have anything to do with the death of Sonje McCrae?

You’ll like this book if you enjoy character-driven mysteries that include dogs who take an active, realistic role in the plot. It’s filled with likable small-town characters and plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing.

I’m a fan of Jonni Good’s papier mache site and YouTube channel. To be perfectly honest I purchased her first book, The Owls Mask, as a show of support for a lovely woman. I purchased the second book because the first one turned out to be so good. The second one has certainly made me addicted to her character. Fun read, fully fleshed out characters set in a charming town.
