February Fever by Jess Lourey is the 10th book in the “Murder-By-Month” mystery series. Publisher: Midnight Ink
All Aboard the Murder Express
Mira James’s hot and heavy relationship with boyfriend Johnny Leeson is definitely warming up her winter. But when Johnny has to go to Portland, Oregon, for a month-longth internship, airplane-averse Mira lets her septuagenarian friend Mrs. Berns talk her into a visit. On the plus side, Mira can make the trip a tax write-off by attending the International Private Investigator Conference. On the down side, Mrs. Berns books them—much to Mira’s dismay—on the Valentine Train, a place for singles to meet and mingle.
After a few glasses of champagne and Mrs. Berns’ encouragement, Mira begins to relax and enjoy herself . . . until a fellow passenger is murdered and a snowstorm traps the train in the Rockies. If Mira can’t track down the killer, she may end up derailed—permanently.
This story touched me more than I can say. This mystery was expertly written with great depth and with such fever that I will always remember the emotional well-being of all those who crossed the path of Mira James and made a difference. Mira James truly discovered who she is and I hope she is proud of that person. I have to say I love Mrs. Berns who was a tremendous asset to the telling of this drama. A great job well done and this is by far the best book in this series.
