I’ve found a new author and new series. This series is set on Martha’s Vineyard where fishing, food, tourists, and the wealthy abound. A Beautiful Place to Die is Philip R. Craig’s first book in the series revolving around retired cop Jeff Jackson. Jeff who spends his day’s fishing, gardening and cooking is asked by the young teen daughter of one of his friends to look into the sinking of her fathers boat which resulted in a death and injured her brother. Susie doesn’t believe it was an accident and she may be right. This book was written in 1989. I believe there are 22 books in this series, so I will be happily reading for a while.
The book was well written and I would put it in the cozy mystery category as there wasn’t the detailed gore you find in some books. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series The Woman Who Walked in the Sea.
