The Corpse with the Sapphire Eyes by Cathy Ace is the fifth book in the “Cait Morgan” mystery series. Publisher: TouchWood Editions, May 2015
It’s Cait and Bud’s wedding weekend and nothing is going as planned. The weather in Wales is terrible, the “romantic” castle they chose for their destination wedding feels creepy, and now there’s a dead man at the foot of the stairs.
Bud assures her that the death of the choirmaster is nothing more than an unfortunate accident, but the bride cannot help but suspect the worst. With the only bridge to the castle washed out by the storm, Cait surmises that the murderer is still in their midst, and sets out to catch the culprit. She knows she has to solve the case before something, or someone, prevents her from finally saying “I do.”
With an eclectic cast of characters and a baffling mystery, the fifth Cait Morgan Mystery will have you stumbling to catch up to Cait’s brilliant mind, and keep you guessing until its shocking conclusion.
I enjoyed the latest adventures with Cait and Bud who are set to marry and of course, what mars this exciting time is Murder. What I like best about this drama is that all the suspects are trapped inside this castle, which puts Cait and Bud on high alert to uncover the killer’s identity. The author did a great job in the telling of this tale placing me in the middle of all the action, as I wanted to know what role every character played in this intriguing and finely tuned whodunit. I liked that we got to know a little more about Cait and her relationship with her sister. The author blew me away with a surprising twist that I did not see coming and wow . . . talk about a chain reaction and its repercussions . . . a story that ended quite satisfactory for this reader.
