For fans of the Martha’s Vineyard Mystery series written by Philip R. Craig, this is a sad moment: it’s the last book of the series, since the author passed away last year. Vineyard Chill has everything I want in a mystery: good characters, a fast moving plot, and not a lot of blood and gore. It has the real feel of Martha’s Vineyard, and all the usual haunts of J.W. Jackson and his family, but this time it’s winter. An old friend of Jackson’s, Clay Stockton, shows up and he’s his old charming self– and as always, there’s trouble following close behind. A great introduction if you’ve never read Craig’s books, but go back and recapture some of the earlier ones if you can.
