Beach Bags And Burglaries: A Haley Randolph Mystery by Dorothy Howell

Haley has won a vacation to an exclusive resort and takes her girlfriends as guests.  It will be relaxing and fun with activities and communal functions to keep them busy.  What nobody suspected was that Haley would find a dead body...

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book to read for review (thank you).  The book will be published in August, so look for it then.  There is another book in the series you can start with if you can't wait.

Haley is a fashionista and is disappointed she couldn't find Sea Vixen bag to complete her look.  However, she knows they will be selling them at the resort and she's determined to get one there.  Without knowing it, Haley has hit upon a clue in the case.

All the staff members seems to be secretive and up to no good.  Haley can tell something is wrong, but she doesn't know what.  Then she finds the missing maid:  Dead on the beach.  The police thinks it's an accidental fall, but she doesn't.  And the further she digs, the worse the danger gets.

What touched my funny bone in this story is the fact that Haley has so many hunks interested in her.  With police, FBI agents, reporters and more watching her and checking out the case, her guests are jealous.  Why should she get so many good looking guys hanging around her when they don't?

The best part is the ending of this story.  I'm going to have to read the next book to see what Haley does next!
