SUMMARY

In this delicious follow-up to Murder on the Rocks, developers have returned to Cranberry Island. This time, they're planning to wipe out a natural cranberry bog, along with the island's namesake berries, to build a luxury subdivision. Natalie Barnes isn't sweet on the idea of commercial interests souring their cozy oasis, but the single innkeeper has other problems on her plate: a withering relationship with her best friend Charlene, the sudden appearance of her ex-fiancé with a tempting proposal, and eerie bumps in the night suggesting the Gray Whale Inn is haunted. Worst of all, there's a killer on the loose, picking off people like ripe fruit.

When Charlene's lover–the handsome chaplain with a stake in the development– is stabbed to death, Natalie promises to find the murderer for her griefstricken friend, who's also the number-one suspect.

REVIEWS

"I love this series. I wish I could go stay at the Gray Whale Inn. The descriptions of the island and the Inn are so wonderful. It sounds like a place you could go to get away from everything. Natalie is a great character as well. She's well-rounded and naturally inquisitive. The recipes and food descriptions will make you hungry! . . . The author has created plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. I highly recommend this book and Murder On The Rocks, the first in this series."
Dawn Dowdle, www.mysteryloverscorner.com
