Declan owns a pawnshop, and happens to be quite the cutie. Charlotte has a mad crush on the guy, who could blame her! However, Declan seems a bit mysterious and not so forthcoming with information as Charlotte starts to investigate the murder.
Pineapple Lies is exactly what it's entitled as, its a cute romantic comedy mixed with a solid mystery. The romantic parts of this book were very sweet and innocent, in my opinion which made it fun to read. I didn't feel like it was this outrageous romantic affair that had me hand-fanning. It's funny and far more realistic, it shows how people really interact with each other.
The mystery part was well written,too. I was able to follow the clue and hints dropped throughout the book without knowing exactly who done it or what was going to happen. So, that was pretty cool. I got to connect the dots as I read.
My final thoughts on this book is that it's definitely a solid five stars. I think mystery and comedy lovers will really enjoy this book. It's a light-hearted read you can really get into. The cover is very cute, too.
Our protagonist, 26 year old Charlotte, is living in the 55+ community Pineapple Port. Her mother died when Charlotte was only 11 years old and she went to live with her grandmother who passed away shortly after. So raising Charlotte became a Pineapple Port community project.
Charlotte decides to dig up the concrete in her backyard to be able to do some gardening and discovers a human skeleton. Now it is up to her and the older folks to solve this cold case.
It is a well written mystery with a great portion of humour, romance and some good investigating. I had to laugh out loud quite a few times and chuckle on other occasions. Life in Pineapple Port with its retirees is everything but boring! A highly recommended fun read.
My first response - Quirky and cute! A cozy mystery with a sweet romance in a Florida retirement community. Full review soon.
Quirky and cute in a retirement community? Well, yes. Charlotte is a 20-something woman who lives in her grandmother's place, which was left to her when her grandmother died. The cadre of mother hens in the community has taken to looking out for her and mothering her since both her mother and then her grandmother passed away. Each of these ladies is as unique as the next. So Charlotte has grown up with a tolerant view of the world. She is, however, employably-challenged, and always looking for her ultimate career. The mother hens are always looking for her ultimate husband.
Declan is a pawnbroker living very close to the retirement community. It's convenient for buying up the estates when the senior citizens die. He's not a vulture, but he does need to make a living. He's another 20-something person in an area where most of the population is over 50. And he's not hard on the eyes.
When Charlotte decides to dig up her back patio for a garden, she finds more dirt than soil. When the sheriff asks questions, he gets more stories than answers. When Charlotte and Declan spend time together, they feel a warmth that's not from the Florida sunshine. But can they form a bond when the skull under the concrete is discovered to be his mother's and the gun has fingerprints on it that come too close to home?
Ms. Vansant has created characters who have the depth to create and survive crisis, conflict, laughter, and romance. Her story line twists and turns so that you won't know who did it until she reveals it at the end. And the story continues from this one book. Amy Vansant just released book #4 in the series this month on the 21st. So check out her series and other books at her site or on Amazon.
This was a BookBub acquisition. This is my honest review for which I am receiving no compensation. All opinions are fully my own.
~ Judi E. Easley for Blue Cat Review
To make room for a garden you need to reduce the size of your lanai (what's good enough for Hawaii is fine for Florida!), so the workers remove a portion of the concrete and you start digging to prepare the soil. But it's the neighbor's dog who really digs up the dirt.
Be prepared to laugh a LOT as Charlotte sets out to solve the mystery with her grandmother-surrogates Mariska and Darla.
