The third installment in the “Sam Applewhite” series, this madly manic romp has Sam, – once again inadvertently enmeshed in a labyrinth of criminal activity – fighting for her life, scouting out stolen antiques and staring down Hugh, a rangy elderly tiger. All of this mayhem takes place at or around Candlebroke Hall, the country estate of the aging actress Lady Kiki Lettuces, who has fallen on hard times, along with her paramour, Antoine, a somewhat sleazy former celebrity-psychic.

All our regular heros are back, including Sam’s wonderful Dad, Marvin, – a retired magician, (who may or may not have a lingering crush on the lovely lady Kiki).

We also see the return of Sandraker, the Viking longship constructed lovingly by the Odinsons, a returning clan of Icelandic-wannabes, erstwhile raiders and villains, who function with the brains and hearts of a group of overgrown and somehow charmingly delinquent teenagers.

Fans of comedic crime capers, similar in some ways to a British version of the novels of Janet Evanovitch or Carl Hiassen, will love this book, along with its chuckle-worthy predecessors in the series. I found myself laughing out loud in so many places that I lost count – and in particular, absolutely loved the scene of Sam having dinner with an amorous Antoine the psychic. You will have to read this book to find out why!

My stop today on the @Rararesources #blogtour for #SamApplewhite #Sandraker
