About the Author
For many, the thought of childhood conjures images of hopscotch games in quiet neighbourhoods, and sticky visits to the local sweet shop. For Penelope Sotheby, childhood meant bathing in Bermuda, jiving in Jamaica and exploring a string of strange and exotic British territories with her nomadic family. New friends would come and go, but her constant companion was an old, battered collection of Agatha Christie novels that filled her hours with intrigue and wonder. Penelope would go on to read every single one of Christie’s sixty-six novels—multiple times—and so was born a love of suspense than can be found in Sotheby’s own works today. In 2011 the author debuted with “Murder at the Inn”, a whodunit novella set on Graham Island off the West Coast of Canada. After receiving positive acclaim, Sotheby went on to write the series “Murder in Paradise”; five novels following the antics of a wedding planner navigating nuptials (and crime scenes) in the tropical locations of Sotheby’s formative years.

A woman appears at the front door. She is in tears. Inspector Crothers has suggested the woman come see Diane. He believes Diane can help her find her husband.
This is a very quick read.
The action all happens within a short period of time because Diane is an expert at putting facts together and solving mysteries. Because she has a good relationship with Inspector Crothers, she is closer to the clues than some other civilian. Her powers of observation are impressive. She puts the information to very good use.
The plot is well done. Character development is pretty self explanatory.
Ms Sotheby has written a compact mystery story which is entertaining and interesting.
I voluntarily received a copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it. My opinion is entirely my own.
