  • The Fountain of Murder

    Liz and Auntie are hosting a team of archaeologists at the family hotel as they dig for historical artifacts on their next door neighbor’s property. When the man financing the dig is murdered, Liz and the gang will do whatever they can to help save their neighbor who is being set up for murder. As Liz, Betty and Ryan do their best to figure out who the killer is, they end up with another body in the hotel basement…and hope there won’t be more bodies before the case is solved. This is a great series set on the east coast of Florida and really sets a tropical scene for you as you read. Having lived on the left coast, the right coast is a pure get away and during the pandemic, I’ll take a getaway any way I can.

  • Riveting!

    family-dynamics, friendship, Florida, barrier-islands, cozy-mystery, amateur-sleuth, private-investigators, murder, murder-investigation***** It all happens at a beautiful restored family hotel on one of the barrier islands of Florida. Mystery novelist Liz whose love interest is a PI (and former FDNY arson investigator, her father is a lawyer whose fiancee who is a local police detective, her own rescued parrot (prone to voicing obscenities), and a great-aunt with a 1960s TV history. This time there are archaeologists (who are involved with rivalry and infidelity). Enter the corpse who might have had an accident. Or not. The publisher's blurb is a pretty good hook, but there's lots more to recommend the plot with its twists and red herrings than meets the eye. I admit that I enjoyed another in the series, but there is enough clear referencing to make this one enjoyable all by itself! I loved it and couldn't stop until finished! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • A great series

    Another satisfying book in this series. Great characters and a good whodunit. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

  • Exciting Florida Coastal Mystery

    Exciting Florida Coastal Mystery This is an exciting mystery with many moving pieces. The main venue is an old coastal hotel. The owner is quite a character. She had been a Hollywood actress and had many bit parts on television in the 1960s. Her macaw enjoys singing the theme songs to those shows. There is an archeological dig going on next door to find relics of Ponce de Leon. There is also an abundance of pets and wildlife throughout the story. This is the first book of the series that I have read and it stood alone just fine. The author excels at giving the new reader enough background information to enjoy the book, but not so much that one can't enjoy the previous books. I do believe I want to go back and read those prior books. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Archeologists dig up trouble

    A lovely spot on the coast filled with old stories, explorers, and shipwrecks consistently draws treasure seekers including the current team of archeologists staying at Indialantic by the Sea. They appear to have found a valuable artifact at their dig site but one of them is discovered very quickly buried in the pit with a diving spear in his chest. The Bennett property, site of the dig, has not been a particularly quiet venue lately. It’s obvious there are problems among them. Unfortunately, it’s Birdman (the property’s owner) the police arrest and protagonist Liz Holt knows it couldn’t have been he. Ryan is her PI boyfriend and their relationship is becoming serious. Her octogenarian aunt, a flamboyant ex-Hollywood bit player is always full of stories and a strong support character. Among other support characters are two macaws. The investigation and collaboration continue until the perp is ascertained in a rather low-key conclusion adding in one last twist of a romantic nature at the end. I must admit to finding more than a few passages so low key my interest waned and I had a hard time staying engaged, nor was I able to connect to the protagonist. There were twists and more clichés than I appreciate (including the extended conversation regarding Barbies) that just lost me in the pages. Apparently the wrong book for me, but I’m sure fans of the author will find the discussions, particularly regarding Ponce de León enlightening.

    Thanks for your feedback!
