The Final Mystery

Now that small-town reporter Peter Fontaine has gotten hitched to the man of his dreams, he thinks his days of solving crimes are over. But after a decades-old secret is revealed, a dead body is found and Peter’s husband Nick is at the top of the suspect list. Peter must harness his power of ultimate nosiness to find one last killer.

My View:

The Bellingham Mysteries are really top notch entertainment, they are mainly light hearted mysteries, more ‘Murder she Wrote’ than psychological suspense, the writing is wonderful and the relationship between Peter and Nick as well as developing with each book, feels realistic . The setting of the artistic city of Bellingham is almost like a character in it’s own right as well.

As an ending to the series Pentimento Blues is very good, Peter’s internal monologue is affectionate and witty, and Nick is as cagey as ever, yet even when they are not being as open as they should with each other, the way that they care shines through.

The murder was actually quite hard to figure out here, but it actually played second fiddle to Peter and Nick finally having no secrets between them and looking forward to an ‘uneventful’ future.

A great end to a wonderful series.
