Amazon.com Review

Maggie McGill, psychologist, artist and amateur sleuth is back in her home town of Costa Mira, Florida in this fourth of a series of Maggie McGill mysteries. While on a beach walk Maggie meets tall, handsome blue-eyed Brit Timothy. There is a mutual attraction and they meet for an enjoyable lunch. Days go by with no word from Timothy. When he gets beaten up, stranded on nearby Manatee Island and begs for Maggie’s help, she realizes a mystery is swirling around him. Who is he really?

In this book we are reconnected with several familiar characters from the previous books, including Pascal, Maggie’s charming, French, art gallery owner. As well, the reader is treated to more of the warm, loving relationship between Maggie and her photographer daughter, Allie. Both Maggie and Allie are intelligent, strong, resourceful women, but it will take all of their strength, courage and wit to survive as the danger around them intensifies.

I loved the descriptions of the beaches, the warm sub-tropical climate, the beautiful sunsets, the animals and birds of Florida. “Sandpipers and sanderlings scuttled at the water’s edge, playing tag with each foamy wave, daring the waves to touch their tiny feet. The waves continued the contest but never won. The birds reminded Maggie of old-fashioned ladies going about their household chores.” Sharon Burch Toner delights the reader with her elegant writing!

I highly recommend this delightful, clean, light-hearted mystery.

Format: Paperback
If you have not had the opportunity to read the Maggie McGill series by Sharon Toner, I sincerely encourage you to do so. They are delightfully "clean" and include a mother - daughter duo. For us moms and daughter's with good relationships, it causes one to fondly imagine such ongoing, compromising situations. For those who do not enjoy a close relationship or have no daughters, it still offers a great story to "dream" by.
In book number four, the scene is partly set on a small Island beyond the Florida keys. Maggie meets a wonderful British gentleman by accident. They seem to "hit it off" and she is able to help him with a problem. When her daughter, Allie, hears of this gentleman ad some conflicts, she flies out to Florida to visit her mother so she can decide for herself if this man is worthy of her mother's companionship...Little did she know she would encounter more disturbingly dangerous situations.
Is this new British suitor a "keeper"?
Unlike other previous stories, this one does not contain a "mystically mysterious" man...However, there is an element of mystery in some of the characters involved. As always, the characters are well-defined and seemingly real. the various scenes are portrayed well. The Title and Book Cover are well-"fitted"to the story.
Some of this tale was predictable - especially to "Maggie McGill" fans - but there are still some unexpected and surprising elements. It is just a pleasant relaxing read. If any are fans of Agatha Christie, these are better!
