Death and Viking's daugther

3 stars

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.

This is the fourth book in this series. I haven’t read the first 3 books, but I didn’t feel too lost. The author provides enough backstory for the reader to figure out the history of the main characters. Wren is an auctioneer and her fiancé Death (pronounced Deeth) is a private investigator. They are ready for Death to meet Wren’s parents and settle down in a new house together. The company Wren works for is preparing to auction items from an old supper club in the woods near a Viking reenactment camp. One day they run into an elderly man that nearly dies after he sees what he believes is the ghost of his long-lost daughter.

Meanwhile Death is hired to investigate the theft of several art pieces with no real monetary value, but high sentimental value. When both mysteries appear to be entwined, the couple find themselves in the middle of a dangerous situation.

I grew up in Missouri, so it was fun to see locations that I was familiar with in the story. The story was ok for a cozy mystery. The characters are very nice and kind of corny, the storyline is not overly complicated and the book has a predictable, happy ending. The book is a fun, fluffy quick read.
