Publisher's Summary

Jessica and her friend, Dr. Seth Hazlitt, get the shock of their lives when they travel to a Florida retirement community for the funeral of their old friend, Portia Shelby, only to discover she has been murdered. Needless to say, America's most beloved sleuth soon finds herself with a Palm Beach potboiler on her hands. Who would want to kill her dear friend? A neighbor with a personal grudge? Or the victim's handsome husband, next in line to inherit her riches? One thing is certain: the beach umbrellas aren't the only shady things in the seemingly innocent community, so now Jessica is in a race against time to solve this Floridian flummoxer before it's too late.

Delightful and Suspenseful

One of the best books in this wonderful series, perhaps because I have a soft spot for the Keys. The storyline development was detailed, but never slow. The introduction to new characters was very smooth and believable. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Thank you for such high quality entertainment!

Fun, easy read!

I really enjoyed the narration of the book through my fire tablet. I am able to go for long walks, mow the lawn, vacuum the floor, or bike ride while having this book read to me! Great reading voice. Really held my attention.

Great narration

I take umbrage to other reviewer who said the narrator grates on "everyone's" ears. Cynthia Darlow is my favorite narrator and I often seek book s she narrates. When writing a review please keep it to your personal opinion.
I did enjoy the book.

Murder Madness

For a cozy mystery you can’t beat a Fletcher book. The narrator really compares to Angela Landsbury and makes for an enjoyable read. This particular one made me wish I was on a beach in the keys.

Fun read/listen

If you're on the road or just running errands, this is a fun whodunit to have along. Narration was very good and added to the enjoyment. it was easy to stop and take up again in my busy life and still keep up with the mystery.

Cerebral engaging mystery

This captivating novel combines an intricately woven story with facts about real estate development, herbal supplements, and the Florida southern shore. When the last page was read, I felt sorry leave my new Florida Foreverglades friends.
