Customer Product Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Writer's group as detectives This is the beginning book in the Books By The Bay Mysteries. Oyster Bay, North Carolina was a nice little fishing town till a local magazine played it up as one of the best tourist spots around. Now a big time developer wants to buy the towns huge park area to build a development. Not everyone is happy about this though.Olivia Limoges is one of the towns wealthiest and most interesting patrons. She was born here to a local fishing family but when her mom died and her father deserted her, rich grandma swooped in and took her away. She was raised expecting everything to go as she pleased. Now she has returned to town and lives by herself with her brilliantly well-trained poodle, Haviland.When a local charmer and Hollywood gossip columnist convinces Olivia to join her writer's group, she began to break out of her shell. This strange group is made up of some interesting people who instantly bond. Then when the gossip columnist is killed, with only a haiku left behind as a clue, everyone joins in to help solve this poetic mystery.This is a fun start to a new series, with some very interesting characters not the least of which is the bit over the top smart poodle. My problem with not giving this five stars was that the mystery was developed late and a bit strangely. The murderer and reasoning were not laid into the story as expertly as I might have liked--build up of motive was a bit short. Having said that, I definitely plan to read more in this series, as I think the introduction of the characters was terrific. I want to see what this eclectic crew has coming up next in this fun --almost a character in itself--town of Oyster Bay. 02/18/2014
