When a murderer crashes a masquerade ball, it's up to Liz to unmask the killer . . .
It's been quite a year for novelist Liz Holt. She's overcome a lot and is finally feeling at peace with her new life at her family's hotel, the Indialantic by the Sea, on the beautiful barrier island of Melbourne Beach, Florida. She's exactly where she needs to be to ring in the New Year at the Florida Writes Literary Masquerade Ball.
But when her ex-boyfriend surprises her at the ball, she can't disguise her anger, and the two engage in a very public argument. Naturally, after her ex is found dead on the hotel grounds, shot through the heart, Liz tops the suspect list. With the help of family and friends, she needs to clear her name before the real killer waltzes away scot-free . . .
Recipes included!

My Review
It was a compelling read with so many funny and eccentric characters, lovable animals and an amazing setting.
After living in Manhattan, Liz returns to her family who lives on a wonderful island in Florida.She lives in the hotel of her aunt Amelia, a former actress. She is divided between a passion for writing and one for investigation. This time she will have to try to save herself from the murder charge when her ex-boyfriend is found dead and she is the main suspect.
Liz is a great character, she loves her family, loves writing, cooking and has a lot of intuition for investigations. After the end of her relationship with the hateful Travis she starts dating the fantastic Ryan. Adorable are aunt Amelia, very protective of her family, and her friend Betty who thinks she is Miss Marple.
It is written very well with so many clues and false leads that keeps you glued to the last page to find out the culprit. To make it even more enjoyable, there are references to TV series and spots in the 60s and 70s and recipes
It can be read as standalone although it is the third book in the series, I look forward to reading other adventures of Liz and her friends
Highly recommended
