“Death in the Blood Moon” is the sixth novel in the Windjammer Mystery Series by Jenifer LeClair. It’s a mystery that will keep you interested from the first page to the last.

I felt as if I could literally use the book as a road map that would take me straight to the cabin where Brie and her mother stayed, or the reservation where Edna takes refuge after their trip to the lake.
