A coffee shop where the three captains hang out. That in itself of who are they. Another interesting story in this small town with a Victorian Inn.
Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

It’s July and that means boating season in Sweetfern Harbor. Brenda and the staff at Sheffield B&B are gearing up for the annual boat races. Mac introduces Brenda to the famous three Captains; Sully, Eddy, and Pratt. They are close friends and very fierce competitors that like to rib each other and brag about past wins. Captain Eddy invites Brenda to take a tour of his boat, which happens to be an exact replica of Captain Scully and Captain Pratt’s boats. It seems boat builder Wally has crafted ...more

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

The winner takes it all?

Another light fluffy cozy - really not in the same league as the author's Alaskan series. An engagement (that isn't), a dead body, a boat race, a sunken boat and another detective trying to muscle in. Who wanted to kill the Captain ? What made the boat sink? Will the engagement ever be real? The characters were just slightly "off" and the plot could have been a bit tighter.

Great series

Having read the first several books of this series, I’m hooked. The characters are people you want to get to know better. The setting of this series, a lovely town and Victorian B&B, lend itself to many more opportunities for murder and mystery. Can’t wait for next book.

Interesting location

I started reading this series after it was recommended by my sister. I appreciate that all three books I've read have been offered on kindle unlimited as I couldn't afford them otherwise I guess the best review is that I have read all three books in the last two days. Bedtime now!!

I have submitted this review after listening to the audiobook of this title.
Annual boatrace has three main contenders, each having an identical boat built, in an attempt to prove who was the better skipper.
Unfortunately, a dreadful find, but the local detective and Brenda, our amateur detective, puts the race in jeopardy.
You'll be surprised what happens next, and who is responsible.

Very good book

Definitely a 5-star read. This has a well thought out plot and the characters manage to come to life by the end of the story. The ending comes as a surprise as the pot unfolds.

Another great cozy mystery

I really enjoy reading these short cozy mysteries. In this one, I liked the introduction of the new character. I can't wait to see how Mac handles having both Brenda and his friend joining in solving mysteries.

This is a continuation in this series. Well worth the time to read.

It’s enjoyable even though it’s fairly easy to discern the answer to the mystery. A romance Entwined with murder mystery.

Exciting story

Very creative story with a happy ending that made me shed tears along with the b & b staff. I was afraid that mac an d brenda were never going to get around to getting engaged.

Fun reading

Enjoyed this sequel. Nice mystery with no graphic violence. New character added which should provide an interesting personality to the mix. Characters have depth which makes them more complex and interesting. Will continue on.

Great book

I love the way Wendy's books always end on a happy ending and gives you that feeling where you can't wait until the next book, in the series, is published.

Cheesy, but steady

There's something off in the sentence structure sometimes and I just can't place what it is. Overall, not too shabby.

Readable in one sitting

Again a little slow in places . The romance is slow to the characters desire. How a young entrepreneur can change a small town.

Grammar, sentence construction

The plot is good. Author is creative. However, the grammar is not up to par. Feels like it was written by a non English speaker.

Another Great Book

I really enjoyed this latest cozy and returning to Sweetfern Harbor to see old friends.
This book is recommended for those who love cozy mysteries.
Robin  Adair Lebbin
Lighthearted

This was typical of Wendy ‘s series. But, I love the light- hearted mystery that keeps you interested. But, not bloody, gory. And, the raw sex is kept at bay, leaving just a romantic undertone.
