MURDER COMES ASHORE
This sequel to Murder by the Seaside has plenty of action and a heroine who is a trouble magnet. The secondary characters are delightful and it is hard to choose which of the two heroes to like better.
Downsized from her FBI job, Patience Price returns home to Chincoteague Island and sets up shop as a family counselor. She has finally calmed down from the excitement of helping her ex-boyfriend be cleared of a murder charge, but when she finds a human ear on the beach, things start to stir again. As more body parts come ashore, Patience is drawn into the investigation, much to the chagrin of both her ex-boyfriend, Adrian, and her current interest, FBI agent Sebastian Clark.
