Review: Scarlet at Crystal River by Randy Overbeck


All Darrell Henshaw wanted was to enjoy his honeymoon with his beautiful wife, Erin, in the charming town of Crystal River on the sunny Gulf Coast of Florida. But his carefully laid plans go sideways when they discover a hidden painting of two young Latino children, which turns out to be haunted. Is Darrell willing to derail their entire honeymoon in this perfect, quiet corner of the world to unravel the mystery of the children’s deaths?

My opinion:

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Scarlet at Crystal River by Randy Overbeck is a mystery/suspense. It’s the third book from the Haunted Shores Mysteries Series.

Darell Henshaw had recently got married to Erin and they were going on their honeymoon to Crystal River. At his bachelor party the medium, Natalia, gave him a prediction about two visitors from the other side. Darell hoped that she was wrong since he wanted to have a peaceful vacation with his wife. Unfortunately, she was right. Their first day there he saw the ghosts of two small children. No matter how he tried to avoid engaging in this situation the ghosts didn’t let him, either Erin when she found out. With the help
of a young man, Luis, they were going to get justice for the kids.

This is another masterpiece from Randy Overbeck. His excellent writing style has left me speechless for one more time. He writes in a way that makes you feel what the characters feel and you have no choice but to partake in the journey with them. I have read the second book from this series and I think that the action escalated in this one. Now about the plot, it’s a slow-burn mystery that is nicely combined with the romantic relationship of the couple. For one more time, I want to mention that the descriptions are
wonderful and very detailed that helps with the visual of the scenes. What I loved in this story were the strong feelings Darell had about the little kids. The peak of the story was towards the end and it gave me chills.

In general, this is a story that you have to read if you love a good mystery. I will rate it with 5 stars.

P.S. Even though it can be read as a standalone I would highly recommend you to read the previous books as well.
