Death by the Sea
by Kathleen Bridge
Liz returns home to a small Florida beach town after 10 years of living in New York City and having a successful writing career. Her family runs a historic hotel, and Liz happily joins in working at the hotel when she returns. Everything seems to be going smoothly, until a rich guest is found murdered at the hotel. It seems there is a killer at the hotel, and Liz sleuths to discover who it is.
The 1st book in the By the Sea mystery series. A charming setting – loved the old hotel and nearby shops. I especially enjoyed the descriptions of the books, the hotel library, and the local bookshop. The characters are fun, with the hotel and shops both full of eccentric staff and guests.
A great cozy mystery. I look forward to reading more of this series.
I received a digital copy of this book from Kensington Books and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
