Fortunes, fineries, and foul play . . .
It’s whale-watching season in Redwood Cove, and B&B manager Kelly Jackson’s battening down the hatches for the tourist rush at Redwood Heights—a Victorian-style estate owned by her boss. And due to recent jewelry thefts, her duties include keeping track of the many dust-covered artifacts spread throughout the property. But when Kelly finds Sylvia Porter’s lifeless body, menial tasks don’t seem so terrible. Enlisting the help of a ragtag group of brainy retirees, aka the “Silver Sentinels,” Kelly’s on the hunt for clues hidden behind the mansion’s glamorous façade. . .and for a killer who may want to make history of her next!
I love this series, I was really happy to come back to visit the delightful and charming Redwood Cove and its funny and smart with great investigative skills employees. Kelly is returned to work at the B & B Redwood Cove. On the evening of her return a guest claims she was pushed by someone and being dropped. The other members of the staff argue that she is an actress and will definitely alone slip. Despite this Kelly controls all the rooms but can not find anything. There have also been small thefts so she must keep her eyes open. When Kelly finds her died will have to investigate again with her very close-knit group of collaborators Although it is the second book in the series you can be read as if it were a stand alone. All the characters are amazing, very realistic and believable. Kelly does her job with great passion and is a pleasure to see with her own eyes the beautiful rooms of this charming house. Tommy is a really lovely guy, one of my favorite characters. An easy, clear and smooth writing, detailed and well-made descriptions, great dialogues make it a really compelling story. Highly recommended
