Murder Makes Waves
Patricia Anne, Mouse, needs an adventure. She believes her daughter Haley and friend Frances need one, too. So she talks to her Sister, Mary Alice. The four women take off to Sister's beach condo in Florida. Unfortunately, the day after they arrive she stumble across the dead body of an old friend who was the condo manager. Their adventure of escape for a girl's week now has become an adventure of mystery.
Sister met a man before they left Birmingham who followed them down to Florida. After they discover a second body, Mouse's husband comes down. Sister is also involved an amateur writer's conference. One of the investigating officer is also in the conference. There is a new development in the neighborhood. Other friends from the condo are involved as the week goes on. As the week progresses all these factors come together to solve the mystery that invades the Southern Sisters' lives during this week.
This is a cozy, escapist mystery. The mystery itself is actually well done but is hidden away in the fluff of the story. It's a fun read and continues the story of the Southern Sisters' families. It also stands alone nicely.
Murder Makes Waves isn't deep nor does it make the reader think. That's not its purpose. It's a cute novel that happens to include a couple of murders. Enjoy an afternoon of escape.
