A heartwarming cozy mystery series about losing everything, taking a chance, and starting again.
After suffering a personal tragedy, Abby Sullivan buys a huge, old seaside mansion she has never even seen, packs up her life in San Francisco, and moves to Holiday Bay Maine, where she is adopted, quite against her will, by a huge Maine Coon Cat named Rufus, a drifter with her own tragic past named Georgia, and a giant dog with an inferiority complex named Ramos. What Abby thought she needed was alone time to heal. What she ended up with was, an inn she never knew she wanted, a cat she couldn't seem to convince to leave, and a new family she'd never be able to live without.
In book nine in the series, a newly engaged couple rents out the entire inn for their engagement party. As part of their "making memories" theme, they ask guests to take photos and share them with the group. Everyone is having a wonderful time, until one of the guests turns up dead.
