The Fox Point Files, Book 1
Synopsis: I remember the first time I ever saw Detective Inspector Noah George.
We were seven, stupid, and he threw sand in my eye. I’m pretty sure that’s when I fell in love with him. Hey—I did say I was stupid.
Summers in Fox Point, my grandfather’s seaside hometown, were all we had together. Then we turned eighteen, life happened, and he never spoke to me again.
Until my grandfather’s death calls me back to the small town, only for his lawyer to tell me he’s left me my family’s dilapidated bed and breakfast that was home to many things—my first sleepover party, where my grandma taught me to cross-stitch, my first kiss with Noah…
And apparently, my first dead body.
My name is Lottie O’Neil, and I’m on the hook for the murder of a man I’ve barely met.
And the one who’ll have to arrest me is the only man I’ve ever loved.
Unless I find the real killer first.
Review: I’ve tried a paranormal cozy mystery from this author before, but this is the first time I’ve tried one of her contemporary cozy mysteries, and I’m glad I did, because I had a great time with this novel.
Lottie is called back to her grandfather’s town after his death. When the will is read, she expects everything but the broken bed and breakfast of her childhood. But what can she do? Can she repair it, despite the considerable amount of money it will cost to refurbish it, or sell it? No, never. A Cornelian choice. Worse still, she discovers the corpse of the man who’s been hounding her to buy her new bed and breakfast and, of course, becomes a suspect. And who’s in charge of the investigation? Noah, of course, the man she was madly in love with and who abandoned her overnight.
If she thought she’d moved on, she soon realizes she hasn’t… But Noah has someone, and it’s not her.
I had a good time with this novel. The investigation is very interesting and I was curious to find out who did it. It’s very easy to become attached to Lottie and want to learn more about her.
I’m very curious to read more!
