Details: nr. 3 Regan Reilly Mystery
Regan and her parents and friend have been invited to Aspen over Christmas.
Upon arrival, their hosts discover that their caretaker is missing as is a valuable painting.
Eben, the caretaker turns out to have a criminal past and the automatic assumption is that he must be the thief, but Regan isn't so sure.
With another friend of hers planning the official opening of his restaurant, also involving a valuable painting, Regan is up against it to prevent another theft and her friend's ruination.
Fun cozy mystery with nice characters, but I probably would enjoy them more if the culprits weren't out in the open from the start.
