A guest murdered by an arrow brings the stories of a Native American legend to life in a beautiful Arizona resort, inspiring a resort supervisor to turn amateur sleuth to hunt down the killer in the fascinating murder mystery Arrowed (Resort to Murder: Book 4) by Avery Daniels. While wrapped up in a romantic moment, Julienne is shocked to have her ankle grabbed by a wounded man. With his dying breath, he confesses to her that the curse of the Indian Brave is true. Because she has prior experience with murder in a hotel setting, the resort owner places Julienne in charge of an in-house investigation into the man's death. Knowing that ghosts and legends do not shoot arrows, Julienne starts her reconnaissance work by looking into each guest's background who has connections with the deceased. However, when Julienne's prime suspect is found propped against her door with an arrow through his heart, the case takes a nosedive. While Julienne doggedly continues to search for clues to the killer's identity, she is startled to see a young warrior brave watching her from the side of a path. Is it possible the legend is true? What could the dead men have done that invoked the wrath of a human as well as a spirit? Can Julienne find out before there is another victim?

Part of a sensational murder series, Arrowed (Resort to Murder: Book 4) by Avery Daniels is a delightful amateur sleuth mystery. It is engaging from its intriguing introduction until its thrilling conclusion. Tenacious and irrepressible, Julienne's character is likable as well as relatable. I especially loved the character contrast between Julienne and her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend, Tiffany. Tiffany makes a fabulous antagonist and is a perfect foil for Julienne. Their friction and ambivalence enhance the storyline with a juicy bit of tension and conflict. I was very impressed with the development of the characters. Each one is a strand in an elegant tapestry, and their varying personalities and roles strengthen the weave of the storyline. Even in absentia, the General, Mason's father's presence is felt without disrupting the flow and enhances the storyline. It is a superb murder mystery that will delight those who love cozy mysteries with a hint of the paranormal and solved by a feisty female protagonist.
