Ring Around The Rosy by Jackie Fullerton Review for The Cadence Group



Law student and amateur sleuth Anne Marshall and her attorney fiance Jason Perry leave their Midwestern town for a Florida vacation at the home of Jason’s parents. When they land in Florida, they find that Jason’s father has discovered the murdered body of his wife’s best friend, Maude. The only clue left behind is a note pinned to her that is the second verse of the nursery rhyme Ring Around the Rosy. Unable to pass up the opportunity to investigate a juicy murder, Anne soon discovers that Maude’s brother was killed in a hit-and run accident several months before. The first verse of Ring Around the Rosy was pinned to his chest. Anne thinks the perp is a serial killer who will strike again. When Maude’s son, Ron, is brutally attacked and left for dead, Anne knows his work is just beginning. Racing against the clock, Anne soon finds herself in a serial killer’s crosshairs while battling an untimely attraction to homicide detective Don Reynolds. Ring Around the Rosy takes you on an adventure from present to past and back again as Anne and her crime-solving partners shift in to high gear to stop a killer before he strikes again!

My Thoughts
Most everyone has heard the nursery rhyme, Ring Around the Rosey, it was sung by schoolchildren in the middle ages and was about the Plague. Well in this story a murderer is leaving notes with this nursery rhyme on the bodies of his victims.

This is the second book by Jackie Fullerton featuring Anne Marshall and the ghost of her father. Anne Marshall and her fiance, Jason Perry go to visit his parents in Florida for Thanksgiving. Earlier that day Jason's father comes across the body of his wife's best friend Maude. Clearly a murder victim and since Anne has a hard time staying out of trouble, she becomes embroiled in the investigation of the murder. It appears that someone is out to get the family of the murder victim, Maude. 


In these books Anne has the help of the ghost of her deceased father...He has kept her out of serious trouble before and he comes in handy while Anne puts herself in danger once again. Like I said, she has a problem staying out of trouble so she needs all the help she can get. This is a fun cozy mystery that is sure to entertain the lover of murder mysteries..I enjoyed it!!


I received this book for review and was not monetarily compensated for my review.
