Publisher's Summary

Dark secrets from the past bob to the surface in the third novella in the Widow’s Island series.

When a body washes up on the state park beach, Deputy Tessa Black’s experience as a former Seattle detective tells her that the death was not an accident. All evidence points to another murder on the remote island.

The victim is a local contractor with a shockingly long list of enemies. The more locals Tessa interviews, the more people she suspects--from the bitter ex-wife and estranged current wife to disgruntled former clients and employees. They all have different reasons to want him dead.

As Tessa’s investigation heats up, arson and a vicious assault convince her the killer is desperate to hide his crime--and that she’d better solve the case before he claims another victim.

Good suspense

This book has an enjoyable setting and enjoyable characters. The suspense is good. The narration is good but not as enjoyable for me as some.

Disappointed

I usually love these stories! This book was a huge disappointment! Spent the first few chapters recapping the previous books, no mystery no suspense!

I just couldn't get into this one

I love the series just not this story. Maybe it was too short and that is why I was not vested in it

So-so

Of the series it felt as if there is untapped potential. Each of the novellas could have been better developed. The characters were single dementional nd desperately needed fleshing out. The plots raced to a conclusion on each book. AS FOR THE NARRATION............
The narrator appeared, in all 3 books, to be simply reading the texts. Inflection, not to mention the lack of differentiation in characters and their lack of inflection, though occasionally better, left much to be desired.

This series, with fewer dead bodies, could have been much more engrossing. Then again, if it was simply presented as something other than an Audible version, it might have been much better.

I recommend reading this book and not listening to narration. Someone should work on getting a new more theatrical narrator.

Quick suspense

This is a quick story in the Widow’s Island series. A bit of drama and a bit of romance.
