This review is from: Dead Man's Float (Jersey Shore Mysteries) (Mass Market Paperback)
Anne Hardaway is shocked to see Tigger Mills has returned to her home town of Oceanside Heights, New Jersey. No one's seen him since the summer 20 years ago when he was accused of burning down a hotel and killing a little girl in the process. Attitudes in the town haven't changed, and Anne is one of the few people willing to talk to Tigger. When he confides that he's received a death threat, Anne thinks little of it. But the next morning, he's found floating in the surf. Teaming up with Tigger's brother Jack, she sets out to find who killed her friend. But the truth will take her into secrets she never suspected her neighbors were hiding. Can she sort through them all and learn the truth?
I thoroughly enjoyed this series debut. The resort town setting is fun and the characters are intriguing. I especially liked the two leads, and it was easy to feel sympathetic for them. What stood out most to me was the plot, however. The surprises never let up and keep you guessing. I was glued to the book, trying to figure out how everything fit together.
I will definitely be booking more time with Anne in Oceanside Heights. This series is a great way to spend a few hours relaxing at the beach, or anywhere else for that matter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Goo dwho-done-it, 14 Jun 1998

This review is from: Dead Man's Float (Jersey Shore Mysteries) (Mass Market Paperback)
In Oceanside, New Jersey, Ann Hardaway is the ghost writer on several popular household guide books. Though she makes her living making other people's "How To Do" books look good, thirty-something Ann is bored to tears in her clean living small town. She thinks things might pick up when the guy she lusted over in high school, Tigger Mills, returns after a two decade absence. Twenty years ago, Tigger left town after everyone, except Ann, thought he killed a young girl during an act of arson.
However, Tigger drowns under very suspicious circumstances. Once again, Ann is the odd duck as every other one of the 702 residents believe Tigger committed suicide. Ann thinks a murder occurred. Armed with her knowledge of housekeeping, and the ins and outs of each and every home in the area, Anne begins to investigate.
DEAD MAN'S FLOAT is a unique amateur sleuth novel due to the insertion as part of the story line of some interesting housekeeping tips in each chapter. Ann is an interesting character and the Jersey shore is always fun to visit. Fans of culinary mysteries will enjoy this sister tale lovingly written by Beth Sherman, who uses her expertise as home beautification specialist to perhaps start a new sub-genre.
