The murder mystery unravels slowly, with the reader meeting some shady characters. The land developers are suspect #1, wanting the prime ocean real estate Maggie's inn is sitting on. Then there's a family who still harbors resentment towards Maggie's deceased parents. However, since this is a romantic mystery, the murder investigation is a backdrop to tell the story of Maggie and Elliot's love affair.
The book reads like a cozy mystery, with no graphic violence or sex. However, there are few F-bombs dropped along the way, along with other choice words.
Ultimately, this is a fun page turner that I wasn't ready to leave when I got to the last page. Definitely looking forward to the next mystery at Juliet Island.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review
Upon re-watching this TV program as an adult, I realised that the show primarily focused on the children (except for the slapstick comedy with a few of the adults), and I often wondered what they got up to in their spare time. What adventures and mishaps did the adults of the island experience?
I feel as though Love and Death at the Inn, while not as silly as this show was, gave a good description of the different types of personalities that would live on an island. This is a place which is small enough where everyone knows the business of everyone else before it's even happened.
The main character, Maggie, is dedicated to keeping the family inn running, despite the fact that it is struggling financially. While she has her close friends to support her at work (and, if she'll let them, emotionally), Maggie realises that she is quite alone. Her dog Ruby keeps her company and is her shadow throughout the book, but at times she wonders if she needs more. Maggie is, however, fiercely independent and determined, so when she notices that accidents are occurring at the inn on a more-than-regular basis, she puts her investigating cap on to try and solve the mystery.
She discovers that this is not the biggest mystery of all. There's a suspected murder (and murderer) in town AND a cute guy who has caught her eye. As she struggles to keep afloat, she realises that her life (and the island) are changing in ways that she cannot control.

I enjoyed reading this cozy mystery. It is comparable to Karen McInerney' s, "THE GRAY WHALE" series, fun, fast read romantic mystery. I look forward to the next book.
