This is the third in the Murder by the Sea series. It can be read without having knowledge of the first two novels although readers who enjoy this book will probably want to spend time with all of the titles. There are currently five in all.
This story is set in an appealing Florida community. Liz is enjoying being there with members of her family and at the hotel that the family owns. She plans to attend a masquerade ball on New Year’s Eve. Bad decision as someone from her past that she does not want to see is there. Events escalate from there.
This is a short cozy mystery that will be enjoyed by its target audience. There are likeable characters and a good plot.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Kensington Books for this title. All opinions are my own.
