Death in Castle Dark by Veronica Bond

3 stars. Super unusual setting-Nora gets a job as an actress in a murder/mystery venue called Castle Dark. The twist? It is an actual real castle! So, a spooky setting but not too scary since it’s not an ancient castle but a constructed castle in Illinois. The first two chapters dragged but once it got going, wow, this was a good book. The actors live in the castle, patrons show up and wander around trying to solve the mystery and it’s such fun I wish it was real. Then, as usual, a real murder occurs. There are secrets, rivalries, a dog and CATS! The plot moves right along and there is a very scary part that was unexpected but extra awesome to turn up the heat on the whodunnit and why. There were some draggy parts in the middle and quite a few characters to keep track of but not too bad. The romance parts were cute and well done; they made sense within the story line. I was all smug that I figured it out before Nora, nope, I was wrong and the actual wrap up was great. Book two is on hold at the library and I can’t wait to visit Castle Dark again. Well done.
