A Fool’s Journey

(1 customer review)


 March 2000, 20-year-old Brandon Colbeck left home to find himself on a self-proclaimed “fool’s journey.” No one — not friends or family — have seen or heard from him since, until a phone call from a man claiming to be Brandon brings the case back to the forefront. Calamity (Callie) Barnstable and her team at Past & Present Investigations have been hired to find out what happened to Brandon and where he might be.

As Callie follows a trail of buried secrets and decades-old deceptions, only one thing is certain: Whatever the outcome, there is no such thing as closure.

    I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and any opinions expressed herein are my own.

    This is the third book in the Marketville Mystery series. It is a standalone book and has no cliffhanger ending. If you were to start with this book in the series, I believe you would not be lost or in any way inhibited in understanding the characters or their motivations. There are several references to events in prior books but the author provides a quick summary and overall, these prior events do not impact the current actions. Although, I would recommend any of the other books in the series.

    I really enjoy the way the author writes from the first person POV of the main character Callie. Callie is a very likeable and relatable main character. The mystery is a missing person’s case of a young man who walked away from his family and now, many years later, may have contacted his grandmother. What I really enjoy about this mysteries series is that from each mystery, you learn something new. This one delved into a bit of Tarot and into tattoos. I find the manner in which Callie and her friends investigate the mysteries to be very interesting, although I wish that Misty had been featured a bit more prominently as she is the Tarot card expert. Overall, a very enjoyable mystery series.

    The narrator, Karen Satter, has a Canadian accent – which is appropriate as this occurs in Canada. However, I found her to be very dry and somewhat detached from the warmth of Callie’s character. While she did a good job – comparing her to the previous narrator in this series, Claira Jordyn, who oozed warmth and sincerity, I found Ms. Satter to be a bit lacking.
