In the latest installment in the series, BRAKING FOR BODIES, the tranquil atmosphere of the island is disturbed when Peephole Perry, the editor of a sleazy L.A. rag, gets off the ferry. Perry is the former boss of Fiona, who’s upset to see him arrive. When Perry is later found dead, Fiona turns to her best friend, Evie Bloomfield, for help.
Evie has her hands full helping with the bike shop, but she’s determined to track down the real killer. She may be speeding into trouble, but she’ll do all she can to help clear her friend.
This is a charming story that moves at a steady pace with twists and turns. The setting is quaint and wholesome, while the characters are contagiously likable and well-developed.
The blend of mystery and mayhem with friendship and a touch of romance makes for a well-balanced tale. The story quickly draws you in and take you on an entertaining mystery ride.
