FRAMED AND BURNING is a different type of mystery in that it delves in the world of the dream. Amazing Grace, her granddaughter Cat and her brother Mick all the ability to share the dreams of others. It can be heart wrenching but it also has the ability to give them clues to investigate.
When Mick's studio is burnt down, his friend and assistant Donnie happened to be asleep there. Now Grace and Cat are trying to find out just why someone would burn down the studio. Did Donnie have someone looking to kill him or was his death accidental? They are out to clear Mick's name but he isn't being cooperative.
I really enjoyed this book. It's a mystery but it is also a story about family and how we interact with them. Grace and her brother haven't been close for years. Seeing them interact and become close again is a true treasure.
I think that my readers who enjoy mysteries with a touch of the 'other' will love this book. I plan on going back and picking up the first book myself.
