Paige Comber (like the pun by the way – I consider myself one, too) works at her granny’s bookshop in Sea Side. It’s such a dull place that her only “How to pass the time” game was to try to guess how many coffee cups she could stack before falling over. Yep, this was bound to be a pretty boring summer for Paige…until the dead body of Old Man Byron—the meanest man in town—drifts ashore on the beach. Could it have been his estranged nephew? But Paige thought he was so nice and had the kindest eyes. It couldn’t have been him…right?
Suddenly, Paige throws herself into the town gossip and the historical significance of the founders. Such a hard case because everyone in town had a reason to kill the old bastard. Could there be a serial killer on the loose? Who was the second dead body?
Witty and easy-to-read. I enjoyed it!
