Another much appreciated FUN read! I'll have more thoughts later but for now "Jasmine" has still got to be the best character in this series!

This was an enjoyable light mystery set in PEI. This one includes a storm that cuts off part of the island, a few messy relationships, and the power of the mind.

Surely even a newbie, community officer wouldn't allow major evidence to disappear or be as chary at handing over evidence. Although I fear that it may all be too close to true.

I'm a writer broadcaster currently writing a mystery series set in a small Canadian fishing village. Like cosies? Quirky characters? Some serious dished up with some comic? Then you might like to start following The Shores series. I call it "village noir."

The first of these, "Revenge of the Lobster Lover" was published by Acorn Press in October 2010.
