Ring Around the Rosy by Jackie Fullerton

Book Description:

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:
I really enjoyed this book.  Anne and her fiance Jason are going to Florida for Thanksgiving to spend it with his parents.  Before leaving, her father's ghost comes to visit and warns her.  Upon arriving in Florida, they find Jason's mother's best friend has been murdered.  Anne cannot resist a mystery and is soon doing a little snooping of her own.  As this is not the first time she has gotten involved in an investigation, everyone is warning her to leave it to the police.  
I was happy to have another story with Anne and her crew in it!  She and Jason are set to be married and the mother's are more into it than they are but so it goes.  Jason irritated me in this one with his disbelief in Anne and his attitude toward the whole thing.  The hot detective, Don was a nice wrench to throw into the mix.  I loved the storyline and it was really a good book.
I rate this a 4/5.  It was great to continue with Anne's story.
