Title: Murder at Lolly Beach (An Eve Sawyer Mystery)
Author: Jane Suen
Eve Sawyer is expecting a fun summer vacation until the chef at a popular food truck is attacked. But he’s not the only victim …
Chef Blake Conway has been stirring up the locals with his campaign for a plastics ban on the quaint town’s littered beach. When Eve’s friend Cassie takes her to visit Blake’s crêpe food truck and they discover he’s being rushed to the hospital, the college journalism student can’t just stand by, especially after Cassie’s beach house is burglarized.
Beach Beat reporter Jake Thorne, who takes Eve on as an intern, mentors her while they race to find the answers. The fuse is running short on suspects who oppose Blake’s proposed ordinance. And a killer is lurking at the small town’s quiet beach, where murders are practically unheard of.
As more suspects are embroiled in this web of mystery and crime, what dark secrets will come to light?
Murder at Lolly Beach is the second book in the Eve Sawyer Mystery series. It can be read as a standalone.
Eve Sawyer is a college student spending her summer break from school at Lolly beach. However, her vacation is cut short when her friend, Cassie, is injured in a home break-in. Plunged into a web of secrets, love, and murder, Eve must catch a killer before more blood is spilled.
I love Eve’s character. She’s very down to Earth, and her inquisitive and brave nature makes her the perfect heroine for this murder mystery. The author did a fantastic job of describing Lolly beach and really putting us in Eve’s shoes. I loved just how many twists this book had and that it wasn’t easy at all to guess who the suspect was.
A must-read murder mystery!
