Summary

School's out for the summer!

Kindergarten teacher Fiona Quinn is looking forward to spending some quality time in her yard and with her boyfriend, Detective Nathan Landry. However, Fiona's plans get squelched when her mother volunteers her to edit a manuscript for famous romance author Wyla Parkes.

What's so bad about that? The author insists Fiona must work on the manuscript at her beach cottage on Presque Isle - three hours away from her yard and Nathan. Spending six weeks in an adorable cottage on a private beach doesn't really seem all that bad until people start turning up dead - beginning with the author! Fiona's summer of sun and sand is instantly transformed into a murder investigation. Can Fiona and Nathan crack the case or will the murderer getaway on a wave of deceit?

Join Fiona and the gang for a hot whodunit on the sandy beaches of Presque Isle, Pennsylvania!

Great story, great narrator.

I think Fiona is adorable She is a self-doubting chatterbox who sometimes doesn't know when to shut up. There are some very funny scenes as a consequence of this. Fiona has a normal nice guy boyfriend without any hidden vices or dual intentions, this adds to the book's charm. As the plot develops, and Fiona finds herself in a bit of a jam, her reaction to the situation is hilarious and completely understandable. The way she extracts herself from this situation is one of the main themes of the book. The comedy is gentle but also clever. The dialogue is superbly done, I love the way what Fiona thinks comes straight out of her mouth even at a moment that is not all together suitable. We hear her thoughts and her opinions. I loved the grandmother touch. No spoilers but I kept waiting for a certain person to be freaked out. I look forward to seeing how that plays out in subsequent books. I am so glad the series is now on Audiobook, it is my best chance of enjoying them. The narrator Maren Swenson Waxenberg does an incredible job with C.J. McDonald's great dialogue. She definitely has a gift for voices and gets Fiona just right as well as all the other characters. I would like to give her five stars too.
