Sruthi Akkineni | 3 comments This is a YA/adult mystery series (about 4/5 books I believe) about a female ghost writer who lives in a fairly wealthy/touristy beach town. She investigates a country club/socialite murder in the first book. The books also show her friendship with a black police officer (also from the town) whom she eventually ends up involved with.
The first book, had an opening chapter where she was reading/writing on the beach when the cop comes up and joins her, teasing her about the sub sandwich he is eating.
I read this about 10 years ago.

A shot in the dark - Death at High Tide by Beth Sherman?

Sruthi, what's the location - country, region?

What types of books does she ghost write?

Is this a cozy mystery?


Sruthi Akkineni | 3 comments Yes! Death at High Tide is the second book in the series, Jersey Shore Mysteries.

Thank you!
