I received this book from the Kindle Scout Program.
Molly has a new husband that she adores. She also has a new stepson that was one of her worst students ever. So her summer vacation has its ups and downs. It just gets more complicated as more of new husband's family turns up at her house. Plus her stepson announces his engagement. Then things get really weird when a dead body is found and the best suspects are all staying under Molly's roof.
I had a disadvantage reading this story. I had not read any of the earlier books and didn't know any of the characters. It was like going to a party where everyone else has known each other for a few years. No one makes you feel unwelcome but you also feel like you don't really belong either as they share an easy interaction that they have formed over their years of knowing each other. As I read, I felt I was missing something. It also made me have time making a connection with Molly so I can't say I ever grew to like her that much.
The mystery was fairly weak. The body wasn't even found until halfway through the book. Molly did only a minimal investigation. Basically, she kept jumping to conclusions and making wild guesses until she finally hit upon the solution. Even then, her conclusions were based on some faulty reasoning.
While this wasn't a great find for me, I wouldn't go so far as discouraging anyone from trying it. I would recommend starting with the first book in the series though so you can avoid that feeling of having missed something and so you can get to know the characters better.
A good fun read for a cold wet day to get you in that tropical frame of mind.
