Death of a Mermaid

Island Intrigue

Wendy Howell Mills, Author . Poisoned Pen $24.95 (244p) ISBN 978-1-59058-217-6

Ohio teacher Sabrina Dunsweeney was expecting a month of rest and relaxation on Comico Island in this entertaining first of a new series from Mills (Death of a Mermaid ), but instead finds herself caught between two feuding families, the Tittletots, who own most of the isolated, vaguely Southern island, and the Wrightlys. Years earlier, Rolo Wrightly was accused of stealing a neighbor's silver and then setting her house afire. Rolo disappeared in the middle of the night and, with the exception of occasional letters to his mother, was never heard from again. Now, Rolo reappears on the island—and shortly after striking up an acquaintance with Sabrina, he's murdered. Unimpressed by the island's police force, Sabrina elects to do a little sleuthing herself. After unmasking the killer (quite literally on Halloween), Sabrina decides to stay on at Comico, a choice that, while unsurprising, will leave readers eagerly anticipating another Comico adventure.
