EVIL BY THE SEA # 4(2020)

The new year has started and the Indialantic hotel is holding a masquerade ball to ring the New Year. Liz Holtz is upset when she discovered her ex-boyfriend Travis and his friends have crashed the party uninvited. He wants Liz to support his book on their affair which she declined in a loud angry voice. When is a dead body is found he becomes the leading candidate for the murder? Her law enforcement friends are not allowed with the investigation because of a conflict of interest. Liz and her friends work behind the scene to clear her name. The ending is a surprise.

I highly recommend this book and series.

Dobyns Chronicles by Shirley McLain

I received a free copy from the author for an honest review. The opinion is my own.

Learned about life the early 1900’s by following Charley Dobyns and his family as they live in Southeast Texas and Northeast Oklahoma. The writing is smooth and easy to read. There are no twists or turns in the .story. you will rejoice when things are great and cry when things go wrong.
Charley is sixteen when his parents died of yellow fever. His brother David is twelve and their sister Viola is fours old. After burying their folks, they have a council to decide what is next. They planned to go to Oklahoma to the Holmes Ranch. Charley hopes to work on the ranch as a hand. The journey begins until his death. This is a novel. I recommend it.

It has been awhile since I have seen a JoAnna Carl's book. I have always enjoy my visit to the TenHuis factory and Lee Woodyard. Of course a visit with Lee and friends we must have chocolate. Special Chocolate in the book are a shark that goes along with a summer advertisement. I feel the rating should be 4.5 stars as there is not a lot about chocolate that I especially enjoy reading about it.
Joe and Hogan want to flip a house. When a house in Lee and Joe's neighborhood is for sale, the group buys it. Lee is at the house with plumber when a exploration occurs and Lee is nearly shot dead. It turns there was a gun that went off by accident. Richard "Spud" Dirk claims he had an agreement from the parents to buy the house. Spud is found MURDERED the carport of the disputed house. As Lee begins to examine the Murder she finds that she must look into what happen in the mid-fifties to find a motive for the two killings.

A novel by Karen White is always an entertaining read. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. A story of two women that click, although they are of different generations. Both women have secrets. In Sweet Apple, Georgia there is a blog with commentary on those living there. The anonymous blog selected to comment for the reason for Merilee Talbot Dunlap’s divorce. She and her two children, Lily and Colin moved into a cottage own by Sugar Prescott, the area’s matriarch. Sugar is not friendly and has definite opinions. For some reason, she is drawn to Merilee and the children. Merilee is starting over as her marriage collapsed as the blog hinted. The children are enrolled in the elite school of the area. Heather, the leader of volunteers chooses Marilee for a special friend. Heather is the perfect Mother and woman and is happily married Sugar doesn’t like Heather. The twists and turns this story takes will make it hard to put the book down. I highly recommend this book.

Disclosure: I received a free copy from Berkley Publishing through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.
