This is the second book in the A Bridge to Death mystery series by R.J. Lee.

It is exciting to find all these new to me authors that I can try. And this book was definitely a winner to me! After reading this I went back and picked up book one on my Kindle.

Regular cozy readers know that there are a lot of suspects in the murder of Brent, who is found bludgeoned in the hot tub at the Rosalie Country Club. Wendy, an investigative reporter at the local paper, has to investigate - just has to- because that's what she does. She's the daughter of the local police chief, btw, and she's got a nose for trouble. Set in small town Mississippi with a cast of characters who will seem familiar, it's a quick and entertaining read. Although it's the second in the ...more
