Beth Sherman's Jersey Shore mysteries are a lot of fun to read, especially if you live in Jersey or have been to the Jersey Shore. In this one, Anne plans a family reunion and like most families, there is a bit of dysfunction. However, this dysfunction includes murder.
Lots of characters and situations to keep the reader interested to the end, and a lot of guessing as to who the culprit is.
I really enjoyed this book. I like the down shore flavor, but I also liked that there were so many different characters and so it made figuring out the puzzle more interesting. There was one big clue-- but you will probably guess it when you read the book. Even if you catch that clue, there is still a lot of figuring to do
With a very large inheritance at stake, anyone of Anne's relatives at the reunion could have done the killing. When the evidence accuses Anne, she has to get busy and find the real killer.
I really enjoyed this book. I read it simply because I live in the area that is the subject of the book (don't believe everything you've heard recently about the Jersey shore), but ended up enjoying the plot and the author's style. Going to look for more of the series.
If you live in New Jersey you will enjoy this book. I still have number #5.
