NOT AS GOOD AS HER MOTHER, BUT STILL GOOD.
Another good Regan Reilly Story
Daughter of Mary Higgins Clark, Carol writes some pretty good, easy reading mysteries. Humorous, light but well composed, a good beach book. Sleuth Regan Reilly is hired as a bodyguard for singer Brigid O'Neill, a rising country star who has been receiving threatening 'love notes'. When a party guest is found dead in the pool, the menace grows.
Regan Reilly is hired as a bodyguard for Brigid, a rising county star who is receiving threatening notes. Brigid also has a "magical" Irish fiddle which is said to be cursed. However, she still brings it to the Hamptons, where her band is performing. Regan joins the hosts at their estate where they encounter a feng shui specialist and a party guest who ends up floating facedown in the pool. Regan must discover what happened before Brigid has any trouble.
For me, this one took a while to take off. Once it did, I didn't put it down!
Great book, lots of great characters
