Aphra Connolly seems like the luckiest girl in the world.
She lives on a beautiful island resort where she gets to
spend her time in the company of the rich and famous.
Although, living on an island leaves few opportunities for
her to meet people her own age. So when the cute Adam
Smith and his family arrive, Aphra is beyond excited. The
thing is, the day after the Smith's check-in, a girl is
found dead on the beach, with the strings of her bikini
top tied around her neck. Is this too much of a
coincidence? Could Adam and his family be responsible for
the murder? Aphra will have to discover the truth before
it's too late.
I thought that this was a really
refreshing read. It has been a long time since I read a
mystery, and this was the perfect book. It has the right
amount of intrigue, suspense, humor and romance. The
characters, especially Aphra, are believable and
relatable. Aphra is a clever heroine who uses her wit and
cunning to find out clues and ultimately save the day. My
only qualm with this book is that it needs more plot
points. The climax occurred fairly quickly for a mystery.
However, there is a sequel, Death By Latte, which should
satisfy readers' appetites after this delicious
