Danger at the Cove: An Island Sisters Mystery

Hannah Dennison. Minotaur, $25.99 (304p) ISBN 978-1-250-19450-3
Dennison’s sprightly sequel to 2020’s Death at High Tide finds financially struggling widow Evie Mead and her older sister, Margot Chandler, recently divorced from a Los Angeles film producer, refurbishing a crumbling 15-room hotel on the tiny island of Tregarrick off the tip of Cornwall. Into the chaos of sorting out the antiquated electrical system marches Louise Vanderhoven, a recently widowed Hollywood friend of Margot’s. Louise has already decided to restyle herself as a film producer and expects Margot to be her business partner. Margot hopes Louise can help market the hotel, but the discovery of a body on the nearby shore plunges the sisters into a murder case, which involves a missing diamond-encrusted cross and a historic shipwreck, as well as a touch of bigamy, blackmail, and fraud. Dennison does a good job hiding clues in plain sight and allows readers ample opportunity to speculate on who might be the killer. A second murder raises the stakes. This lighthearted mystery is sure to please cozy fans. Agent: Dominick Abel, Dominick Abel Literary. (Aug.)
