I loved this book. Maybe it's the Southern Belle in me! It was really a very enjoyable read. I was a bit overwhelmed by all of the characters introduced, especially in the beginning, but once I got past all the names, it was easier to handle "who's who".

A delightful cozy mystery written by three cousins under the pseudonym of Caroline Cousins that takes place on an island in the South Carolina Low Country.

Another lucky chance leads to the discovery of her diary, although it's hard to tell who her friends and enemies are, as she uses initials.

This was very quick to read, but a very good mystery. It took me a little while to get everyone sorted out, but once I did it moved right along. There were some very interesting surprises near the end.
