When ER nurse Angie Deacon buys a day of fishing on NH’s Lake Winnipesaukee for her husband’s fiftieth birthday, she has no idea they’ll wind up suspects in the boat owner’s death. Besides his wife Valerie, why would any of the five strangers on board want gruff, insensitive Nolan Little dead?
None of them knew her before today. Or did they?
As police storm the boat, Angie comforts the distraught widow, who quickly becomes the chief suspect.
She was seen having an altercation with him earlier that day.
But then…so did sexy Jamaican Montez Clarke. He even went so far as to pop Nolan in the nose.
Valerie begs Angie to help find the killer. If she refuses, Val swears she’ll ask Montez for help.
Will Angie regret her decision to aid Valerie once she learns the woman dark secret?
Untruths aren’t the only cause for alarm as the pieces of the puzzle fall into place, leaving Angie wondering just exactly how her husband fit into the deadly equation…
and if she is next on the killer’s list.
“A Nice Whodunit With It’s Share of Twists”
A fishing trip ends in murder, and it is up to nurse Angie Deacon to try and figure out which one of the other members on that days outing committed the crime, before her new friend Val gets pinned for it. A nice mystery whose murder happened in a contained area, and the investigation is complicated by the personal lives of the people on board. The mystery of the killing deepens as Angie follows different leads and discovers everyone on board has something to hide.
A tight, well written little book that reads easily and contains a likeable protagonist. It moves briskly along and does not bog down. I’ll be looking into getting other titles of hers.
