Milkshakes, Mermaids, and Murder by Sara Rosett

Ellie is going on vacation.  She and the kids will go to Florida and her husband will join them later.  It should have been fun in the sun and very relaxing.  Who would have guessed that getting the wrong purse in a purchase on eBay would turn into such a fiasco?

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check for a copy at your local bookstore.  This is the eighth book in this series, so grab some earlier stories while you're at it.

It's a good thing Ellie is around relatives because the lady she's meeting to exchange the purse with is found dead, floating in a pool.  Ellie tries to give the purse to the cops, but they think Angela committed suicide and the purse isn't evidence in their case.  She didn't commit suicide and someone wants that purse badly, even if the cops didn't.

When Ellie finds there are incriminating pictures hidden in the lining of the purse, she understands why Angela died.  But who killed her?

There's lot of action, blackmail, murder, kidnapping, and more in this story.  I wasn't sure who was killing whom until near the end.  There are overlying criminal intents within the story.  It was busy and kept me reading.  Why not give it a try?

By the way, there are organizational tips in the book, too.

Happy reading.
