Helen Bradley mystery - not really my taste, but good enough.
This is the first book I've read by this author and I'll certainly look for more of them.
Eager to spend time with her husband while they remodel their home, Helen Bradley is dismayed when the family patriarch, Patrick O'Donnell, summons her to his secluded island resort. Knowing her uncle's eccentric tendencies, Helen is reluctant to leave---until she learns there have been attempts on Paddy's life.
Helen arrives at Paradise Island intent on assuring her uncle of his safety. But fears abound, and Helen promises to search for answers. Hillary, Paddy's faithful nurse and companion, stands to inherit a substantial sum when Paddy dies. Even Paddy's children,
Richard and Claire, harbor potential motives, as do their spouses. But why would any of them, all so dear to Paddy, want him dead? When signs of Mary, the island's ghost, surface, suspicion turns to the unknown.
