Review: Among The Departed by Vicki Delany

From The Author's Website:

May 3, 2011: Among the Departed.
Fifteen years ago a young girl by the name of Moonlight Smith went to her best friend Nicky Nowak’s house for a sleepover. Moonlight joined the family for breakfast the following morning and was then picked up by her mother. Shortly after, Mr. Nowak went for a walk.
He was never seen again.
It is now autumn in the mountain town of Trafalgar, British Columbia. A police dog is called out to help in the search for a child lost in the wilderness. The dog uncovers something else: human remains.
When Sergeant John Winters reopens the investigation he finds a shattered family and townsfolk desperate to keep their secrets.   As the investigation into the life and disappearance of Brian Nowak grows, old secrets are brought to light and new ones struggle to remain hidden.
Among the Departed is much more than a mystery novel: it is also a story of love – new and old, long-concealed, life-affirming and fatal.

My Review

I was provided with an ebook preview galley from The Poisoned Pen Press through Net Galley.

I was thrilled to be transported once again to the lovely Kootenay town of Trafalgar in beautiful British Columbia through another delightful story in the Smith and Winters series by Vicki Delany.  With each book in the series, I become more attached to her wonderful characters.  I had a hard time putting the story down as her plot kept me guessing as to what was going to happen next!  Highly recommend this book as well as the entire series.  Keep them coming Vicki, they are so enjoyable to read!
