 The Riddles of Hillgate Zoey Kane is known around Riverside for making risky purchases. When her daughter Claire learns a most recent investment is eighty acres on the haunted side of town, she is simply flabbergasted. Amazement takes over the whole community, however, when an old mansion is discovered deep within trees. After the estate is turned into a popular hotel, no one could have expected just how risky this purchase would be.

The Z&C Mysteries are a fresh, unique series, where the mother and daughter can kick butt in heels if they have to. The situations can get very scary, but nothing is ever too gory. The reading is clean, while also vibrant. It's just plain fast-paced fun.  

About the Authors  Claire has a Masters in Journalism, was Editor for Eye Witness Magazine and can't make Irish Rum Cookies to save her life. Zoey has dabbled in modeling, is a licensed real-estate agent, seeks for treasures (great and small), and is often underestimated.

Together, Zoey and Claire are a mother-daughter mystery solving duo. During their downtime, they dream of island men whisking them away. (Zoey and *Claire are also fictional, and their authors are a real life mother and daughter who use their names as pseudonyms. Don't tell them that, though.)

*Award-winning author, Molly Snow, writes under Claire Kane. To see her paranormal romantic comedies, visit mollysnowfiction.blogspot.com

My Thoughts:
This book was a light and zany, quick read. At only 138 pages, this book is short enough to be finished in an evening (I’m a fast reader.) Zoey and Claire Kane (also the names of the authors of the book) are the perfect example of Murphy’s Law. There is always something going wrong, from Claire driving into a ditch, to the skeletons in the mansion and a murder on the opening night of their hotel.

There was a little bit of everything in this novella from romance to murder to ghosts (or were they ghosts?) I love how Zo and Claire have such a wonderful, close relationship – even to the point of a double date!

Some of the events are quite far-fetched or illogical, but it would be a spoiler if I mentioned them, so I won’t. This book is not meant as a serious read, so these improbable events don’t really hamper the story.

Lots of fun for a light-hearted read. I gave this book 3 stars.
