Shelby Cox was looking at the view toward the river. It was a fantastic sight in the first book in a new series and a new author for me. The characters caught will catch your attention and descriptions will place you on the island. Shelby turned an headed for the library located in the Castle. She had come back to Alexandria Bay to run the Blye Island branch of the main store until her Aunt recovered from knee surgery. Shelby was stacking books on the shelf when she informed the volunteer coordinator, Loreena that the books the store carried where none of her concern. The coordinator was later found dead. The twists and turns will have you to turning the pages until it is revealed. Is the smuggler active again? Why does Coast Guard interested in the death? Is Mathew Kessler a murderer? Why won’t anyone talk her about Mother? Will Shelby find answers. I highly recommend this book.
