I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review
With the city trying to decide whether or not to raze the condo facility she lives in, she is pushed into action. When a murder occurs within feet of her unit, she is pulled in. Her late husband, Charlie, was one of New York's best homicide detectives. Using her past conversations with him and the files that he kept (which she didn't have the heart to throw out), she uses some of his techniques in trying to solve the murder.
The first book in a series often has a lot of background information about characters, which slow the action a bit. This is true of this book. I suspect that the next books in the series will pick up the action now that we know who is who and how they fit together to form a team that investigates whodunnit.
I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
Kate Kennedy is a recent transplant to Florida, residing in a new condominium complete with an ocean view. However, her fellow residents have dramatic sensibilities all their own. Kate tends to cower away from the constant gossip and rumor mill, but she’s reluctantly drawn in when a resident is found dead. Developers are signing construction deals left and right, leaving the town and condo live-ins in an uproar. The victim and Ocean Vista board president, Stella, was the lead and most defiant against the contractors in the area. The small Florida town is left to wonder who would go so far to murder Stella just to keep her quiet. Who has the most time to kill? Kate and her fellow residents vow to find Stella’s killer and bring them to justice, which leads them down a path they’ll never believe once they discover the murderer.
Noreen Wald created a clever detective in the character Kate Kennedy. The first book in the Kate Kennedy Mystery series, Death With An Ocean View is fast-paced and easy to read with a hilarious cast of characters. I would most definitely term this book “beach-worthy”, because what better place to indulge in a juicy mystery book than in the sun and sand? A Kate Kennedy Mystery series includes four other books: Death of the Swami Schwartz (Book 2), Death is a Bargain (Book 3), Death Storms the Shore (Book 4), and Death Rides the Surf (Book 5).
