A Snitch in Time by Sunny Frazier

Sunny Frazier always delights, and A Snitch in Time is no exception. She writes the Christy Bristol series in a way that feels lighthearted even in its darkest moments. When Bristol goes on vacation to visit her friend, Lennie, she never expects to get drafted into working for a different department doing her job. Bristol is intrigued enough by the crime at hand that her protestations seem half-hearted at times though her annoyance is very real. When she and Lennie get into a fight, she's left with nothing but the work the department expects her to do. Frazier drops the reader in the Sierra Nevada Foothills creating a sense of isolation that makes the reader cheer for Bristol to stand up to her superiors and get out of there while simultaneously wanting to her to solve the crime. When a witness contacts Bristol via phone she doesn't take her seriously at first only to discover she might have vital information. With suspicion cast in multiple directions, Bristol isn't sure who to trust even suspecting the forest ranger whose cabin she borrows briefly. When she and Lennie finally make up, Bristol finally finds someone to talk through what she's learning about the case who can understand her position. Throughout the book, Frazier keeps the reader wondering what Bristol will do next and if it will bring her closer to solving the case or put her in danger. A Snitch in Time is a fun, fast paced, easy to read mystery that will leave the reader wanting more of Christy Bristol and her best friend, Lennie.

  5. My review on Amazon is similar to TL Cooper's here although much shorter as it was an Amazon book review. A Snitch in Time was definitely a fun read while the excitement kept going.
