When counselor Patience Price was let go from her Human Resources job with the FBI, she sought refuge in her small, island hometown of Pony Island, Virginia. But going back home has been anything but peaceful for Patience! The previous months have been full of danger, crime, and near-death experiences. At least her deepening relationship with Special Agent Sebastian Clark is a bright spot in her otherwise questionable days. (If only that mob boss weren’t hunting him.)
Halloween is approaching as the book begins, and Patience’s ex-boyfriend, Adrian, lures a widely popular reality television show to Pony Island to film. Soon the normally laid-back island is bursting at the seams with fans, followers, ghost hunters…and a murderer. Poor Patience tries her best to honor Sebastian’s wishes that she stay out of any and all investigations, but her curiosity just can’t be quelled and, before she knows it, she’s in a killer’s crosshairs yet again.
Murder in Real Time is the third and final book in the Patience Price Mysteries series and is a fitting end to the story. Author Julie Anne Lindsey brings the action, intrigue, danger, and romance to a suspenseful crescendo and, ultimately, a hugely satisfying resolution.
