Publisher's Summary

Ten years ago, legendary author Riley Cannon produced three of the best-selling thriller novels of all-time. Then, she vanished, leaving the final three books of the saga unfinished and producing the biggest mystery in the history of publishing. Now, a decade later, there is word from her mega agent, the glamorous and powerful Topaz Kennedy, that a new Cannon novel is all but finished. But, Topaz knows the truth: Riley Cannon hasn’t even started the book. With the clock counting down to the publication date, desperate measures are needed….

Meanwhile, in the sunrise-side town of Hampstead, Michigan, 35-year-old Kaj Reynard emerges from Lake Huron on a cool June night and falls face down on the beach next to a fading bonfire—with a knife stuck in his back. Who murdered him? And why?

Enter veteran Hampstead PI Obadiah Ben-David, a man who has never taken on a case that he couldn’t solve. But this mystery is different. The only piece of evidence is the knife, which has no prints. Not a soul saw or heard a boat that night, and the woman sitting by her bonfire did not see anyone else in the water. It is almost as if the deep blue waters of Lake Huron killed Kaj Reynard, and the Huron breezes blew him to shore.

With Hampstead in jeopardy of losing its summer revenue from vacationers who are chilled to their bones of a murderer on the loose, Ben-David takes on an apprentice—a computer coder, Rachel Roberts, who lives down the beach from where Kaj came ashore. Bored by her solitary existence behind a screen all day, Rachel thinks that becoming a PI would be a welcome sea change in her own life. But neither of them can foresee the tangled web of lies, treachery, and danger they will encounter. For when the summer Huron breezes arrive, the blood boils, the inhibitions disappear, and no one is safe.

If you are a fan of James Patterson, Janet Evanovich, Robert B. Parker, Louise Penny, Michael Connelly, Nora Roberts, John D. MacDonald, Lisa Gardner, John Grisham's Camino series, or the TV series Castle, you'll enjoy Huron Breeze and Landon Beach's Great Lakes Saga.

Murder Mystery Landon Beach Style

If you see the name Landon Beach on a book, just click borrow or buy. You will enjoy a well written, character driven book with a great story.
He does it again. He crafts a character focused murder mystery. I loved the framing story of a well known author who lives in the area needing inspiration for her next book. While I enjoyed Rachel Roberts, Topaz stole the show. Her smart, savvy agent was a highlight of the book. The insights on the book industry were entertaining and illuminating. I loved the fact that Rachel hides in plain sight, not chasing fame, though she has the fortune. Professional private investigator Obadiah Ben-David was wonderful as well. I loved the callouts to Iron Man!
As is the standard in a Beach novel, a rich variety of characters come to life as secrets are uncovered with a murder as the catalyst. I listened to the brilliant Scott Brick bringing Beach's characters to life with another fantastic performance. I loved the twist ending as well as Rachel outselling other she previously ghosted for. An entertaining thriller that gives insight into the publishing industry. I've been a fan of the author since his incredible Great Lakes series and he just keeps getting better. I can't wait to start his new book Narrator. The subject matter is definitely intriguing since I am a fan of several narrators.

I've not heard of this Author, but you will!

Fantastic! If I had to use a single word, FANTASTIC is definitely the word I'd use!

I actually recommended this book to a friend of mine that moderates an online book club (Facebook)... But I need you to know that I recommended it before I got to chapter 15!!!

The premise of a novelist that has fallen into an uncreative phase certainly is not a unique one, however...

I live in central lower Michigan, literally 2 hours from either Lake Michigan or Lake Huron. Nevertheless, Author Landon Beach conquered the LAKE LIFE every Michigander yearns for!!!

By creating a murder mystery that motivates a stagnant writer inside this novel, we get the dual treat of working with the characters to solve the mystery AND living the author's motivation to start writing again!!!

I have gone on to purchase several more books in this series and I'm eager to see where this goes!!!

This is Monday, June 20th... I started listening to this book on Tuesday June 14th! I'm starting the 4th book in the series, "The Hike", and I think I'm going to need more outdoor chore time to listen to The Hike!!!

I STRONGLY recommend you purchase this and every other book in this series!!! Admittedly, I struggled to finish book 3. but the rest will hold your attention, I promise!!!

Started Kinda Slow, and Then I Was Hooked!

I sometimes struggle with lots of characters at the start of a book, and that was my reaction to this one for awhile. And then, at a point I cannot quite define, I found myself totally immersed in the world of the book. Some authors seem to lose momentum towards the end of a book. My experience with LB is quite the opposite. Having listened to all of his books on Audible, I've learned not to doubt whether will become a book that captivates, and will remain in my thoughts long after it ends. An unusual writer with an unusual style that works in unusual ways.

Mindbending!

I can usually figure out who the culprit is well before revealed by the author. Not this time! Loved the character development and the fresh approach. Scott Brick is far and away my favorite narrator!!!

Good characters and plot—woke strikes again.

It seems increasingly difficult to find a movie, tv series or book that tell a good story without jumping on the woke train. It’s passive, yet persistent in every medium now and this book was no exception.

I enjoyed the flow of using “real life” events to inspire fictional characters as it illustrates how the creative process is fueled and inspired. There were solid characters and, of course Scott Brick brought it to life (he’s the reason I chose this book).

Could not make it past chapter 4

Too, too, too much dialogue! On and on about the same stuff over and over. The main character is a writer with a block. Ok -so move on! I love Scott Brick but even he couldn’t get me to tolerate this one. Hoping to send it back!
