This is the second in this author's Danger Cove mysteries. It seems there are many authors writing about life in the town of Danger Cove. This author's characters are centred around the Smugglers' Tavern which Hope inherited in the first book. She is getting into her new life as bar owner and also her new love life with a cute Brit called Harvey.
As with any cozy mystery, there's a death. And as the first story, the police decide who the killer is based on the minimum of evidence. So Hope and her best friends, Ruby and Vernon, have to solve the murder mystery themselves.
This is quite a light easy to read story, but a bit heavy on the healthy fitness, new age lifestyle. As a couch addict, I felt it was a little rammed down my throat. It didn't take away from the story too much though.
Having read 2 stories set in this world, I expect I will look at the others as it's a nice town (apart from the murders)
