way they can rotect the crime scene and police can take over once the snow lets up and the roads are cleared.Quite naturally Clyde 's om and her aunt want to help with thi investigation and intend to use their psychic powers, as they ar in the past.

It 's also fu to listen mom and Aunt Vi to use their psychic abilities to sleuth and to provide pertinent clues to Clyde.

Their relationship and his rejectio of her gift and her family is growing nicely:) The paranormal aspects remained fairly minimal in this hird edition of the Family Fortune Mysteries…but I wasn ’ t as isappointed as I as with Pall in The Family and Be Careful What You Witch For. I lready like that they ere more character development than plot and I enjoyed tha one that much more for it.A great cozy mystery that will fin you guessing as you meet suspect after suspect, I might ’ t ecommend this series to.

What I like in this series: I love Clyde, Mac, Seth and the wolves, but I have to dmit, the remainde of Clyde 's family, especially Vi, is getting on my nerves.

I knew that Clyde and Mac actually worked together this time, instead of Clyde working behind the scenes with Mac getting annoyed, like in the two previous books.

Dollycas ’ s ThoughtsAll Clyde and Mac wanted was to get bac from the Michigan cold and their overwhelming families.

Time alone catching rays on a beach in Mexico is delightful, it was for me and Mr. Dollycas but Clyde and Mac don ’ t quite giv it to the airport before it starts snowing and I mean really snowing.

Mac tries to ave the day by taking Clyde to a wonderful castle/hotel to wait out the storm but as soon as the arrive who do they brin?

I maybe wil have set things up a little differently, sent Mac ’ s da to bunk with Rose and Vi and let Mac and Clyde have a room to themselves, but with another family that was not happening.

Now Clyde and Mac have a hotel full of murderer and Aunt Vi wanting to elp them investigate.

Snowed in with all the yarn you could imagine with plenty of time to just knit and purl and create.This is just the 3rd nove in his series o I do recommend you start at the en so you meet this Fortune – ate family from the start.

Meanwhile, there is a knitters conference being held at the hotel which Clyde 's mother and Aunt Vi along with Mac 's mother are all attending.

Clyde and Mac assume positions of authority and try to reserve the murder scene when they ealize that the police are not going to be ble to bring to hotel because of the blizzard.This is a hilariou addition to he series.

I asked how Clyde 's dad and uncl, Seth would be feature in thi tory along with the animals, Baxter and Tuffy.
