Death At High Tide (Book 1)
When Evie Mead's husband suddenly drops dead of a heart attack, a mysterious note is found among his possessions implying that Evie owns the deeds to a small hotel on Tregarrick Rock, a tiny island in the Isles of Scilly.
Still grieving, Evie wants her accountant to sort it out but her glamorous sister Margot has other ideas. Having flown in from Los Angeles to lend her moral support, Margot believes a luxurious weekend away would do Evie good and where better to go than the very hotel that might soon be hers.
But the sisters are in for a disappointment. Although the crumbling Art Deco hotel has a fascinating history—many detective writers from the Golden Age had stayed there over the years—it's definitely more fixer-upper than spa resort. What's more, the foul-tempered hotel owner claims he's never heard of Evie's husband and the other island inhabitants, ranging from an ex-con receptionist to a vicar who communicates with cats, aren't any easier to read.
When a body is found on the beach and then a second soon follows, Evie and Margot find themselves prime suspects with the local constabulary who claim there was "no crime on Scilly until you came along."
Stuck on the island at high tide and with only a handful of residents, the sisters find they must unravel the island's secrets that span generations—along with several of their own—if they want to make it back alive.
