  • Haunting mystery fiction

    Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite Crimson At Cape May is a work of fiction in the mystery, suspense, and paranormal thriller sub-genres, and was penned by author Randy Overbeck. This masterfully spooky adventure follows protagonist Darrell Henshaw, who has now lost his job but still retains his unique powers as a paranormal sensitive. With the prospect of paid work coaching at football camp, Darrell moves to Cape May and takes in its gorgeous vistas. But the cape has a haunted past, and one which Darrell can’t ignore despite his best efforts. Teaming up with a plucky teen sidekick who shares his gift, Darrell takes on the case of the Haunted Bride who is desperate for his help. One of the things which I admired most about the authorship of writer Randy Overbeck was that he was able to harken back to a golden age of detective and mystery fiction, but also keep this work relevant and exciting to contemporary times. I loved the paranormal elements, which were woven so seamlessly into the text that one can take them as fact, which only aids in maintaining the realism of the characters and their predicaments. I also thoroughly enjoyed the character development of Darrell as he continued to figure out his place and purpose in life, and I felt that Cassie brought out a lot of new sides to Darrell’s personality which was engaging to explore. Overall, I would highly recommend Crimson At Cape May as an accomplished work of haunting mystery fiction that fans of the genre won’t want to miss out on.

  • A paranormal multi mystery

    I am starting out this review stating that this novel is not a normal one i would have picked for myself. i thought i would enjoy the location of Cape May since i am in New Jersey. I read a wide variety of genres and tried this story. It took too long to get to the meat of the story. I like a build up but not one that muddies the story. This is the second in a series. This story is heavily built on events from the last book. I wonder if I had read it i would have reacted differently. Darrell Henshaw can see the dead. He is in Cape May Nj helping coach a football camp. He begins seeing a bloody bride. She and other ghosts in the area begin telling him that if he helps the bride he will help the girls. Adding to he mystery who are the girls? He is also helping a young man at camp whos sister has gone missing. He helps with flyers and talking to local authorities. He feels for the boy, his mother and sister so he vows gto do all he can to help them. Complicating matters are the lose of his job back home on trumped up charges and his broken relationship with his girlfriend. The romantic interest comes to cape may when she shows up to rekindle the flame and stays on to help solve the mystery. He finds himself torn between focusing on the local problems or his girlfriend and their relationship. As if things were not complicated enough they meet a young women who has a gift similar to Darrell when she becomes involved with the dead bride ghost she and her friends are all put into danger.

  • great weekend read

    First things first, if you're under a certain age, you may suffer from a bit of culture shock with this book, and things may seem a bit odd. Crimson at Cape May takes place in 1999 - a time when people weren't walking around looking at cell phones, a time when they had to look at a map or ask directions, a time when computers didn't do everything at lightning speed. We also get a protagonist who isn't independently wealthy. Instead, Darrell has money problems and he can't afford to not have a job. So, the added stress of seeing ghosts isn't a welcome thing for him. I found Darrell to be both relatable and likable. Okay, maybe I can't exactly relate to the seeing ghosts part, but everything else is what most of us in the working class have been through at one time or other, at least a little. Being so likable made it easy to root for this character, and it didn't take long at all to become invested in the story. I love trying to solve a good mystery, and it's even more fun with the added paranormal element. The story is very well written and the pacing is good from start to finish. I won't go into the details of the bride to avoid spoilers, but I will say that these characters and their story was a good choice for my weekend read. This is the second Darrell Henshaw book, but Randy Overbeck gives us everything we need to read Crimson at Cape May as a standalone, and he does it without going overboard and taking over too much page time from this story. All in all, I'd have to say if you're looking for a good mystery, this is one to pick up.

    Thanks for your feedback!
