It seems like all my favorite mystery writers somehow stop writing mysteries or move on to other things, but I really enjoy this series by Beth Sherman, set in an imaginary New Jersey shore beach resort that bears a strong resemblance in everything but name to Ocean Grove, New Jersey. Beth's a good writer, the plots are solid, and the atmosphere (having spent a few summers in Ocean Grove myself) is spot on. A lot of fun.
