Book three in the Island Investigations International Mystery series finds our two detectives Noel Franklin and Kyra Rachel once again asked to investigate. This time they are hired by Noel old high school friend Jason Cooper. Jason's oldest son Derek is in a coma in the hospital, the outcome of what appears to be a senseless attack on the young twenty year old that does not appear to have any known enemies. Jason's middle son, Shane, is a promising up and coming figure skater being groomed for the Olympics. As such, the figure skating world is largely captured in this book and explains the choice of cover image.

This one was a let down for me after the first two books in the series. There is more focus on the personal lives of our detectives here and, sadly, it was rather easy for me to figure out who did and there weren't too many surprises this time to keep me guessing. On the negative side, this book was in need of a continuity review prior to going to publication. I have an issue when I am reading a story with a character named Sam only to have his name change part way through the story to Jim with no explanation and then to discover further on a new character by - you guessed it - the name of Sam. Stuff like that drives me crazy! ***small rant over***

Overall, an okay read that fit my purpose of something non-taxing to read as a way to relax after a hectic work week, but nothing amazing to write home about or to recommend. ( )
