A Hole in One by Judy Penz Sheluk

They're hoping to promote their antique shop by sponsoring a hole in one golf tournament.  It's to benefit kids.  Arabella is even going to play although she's not the best golfer.  It gets worse when she goes after a ball she's hit in the bushes and finds a dead body...

The author and Goddess Fish Blog Tours shared this book with me to read for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

Arabella is in between men at the moment.  She divorced her husband and her former cop boyfriend gave up on her because she still loves him.  Her partner has a new love interest but she doesn't have the best taste in men.  When Arabella's ex is accused of the murder, she decides to investigate herself.  It doesn't matter if her old boyfriend tells her to stay out of it...

Everyone in this story was very authentic.  They had the foibles and failures that normal people do and they made mistakes along the way.  For me, it made the story seem more real.  Arabella has been sleeping with her ex despite his new girlfriend.  She knows she shouldn't but she can't help herself.  I hope in the future she realizes what everyone else knows:  She still loves him.

There's a secret cult in town, an antique dealer who is dying, there's another murder, and several people are jailed and then released.  I'm glad Arabella kept digging because the police didn't seem to be.

The ending holds a lot of surprises.  It was a good cozy mystery with a lot going on.  I'd read another in this series.
