I am thrilled to share with you the cover of the first in the NEW “Lobster Shack” mystery series from St. Martin’s Press, coming January 30, 2018.
Murder. It can get you into hot water. . .
Welcome to the seaside village of Mystic Bay, where the fish is always fresh, the folks are ever-friendly, and murder is on a roll….
Allie Larkin is living her dream as a ballet dancer when a bad fall puts her out of business. Now she’s back home in Mystic Bay to heal a broken ankle while helping her Aunt Gully get her Lazy Mermaid Lobster Shack off the ground. Nothing would help Aunt Gully more than winning the local food festival’s Best Lobster Roll contest. The competition is sure to be killer – especially after one of the contest judges dies after eating a lobster roll from one of Aunt Gully’s biggest rivals.
Soon, all eyes fall on Aunt Gully as the prime suspect. Allie may have only one good leg to stand on, but she’s not going to let her aunt go down for a crime she never could have cooked up. Can Allie, along with her devoted crew of friends, family and customers, find a way to trap the killer and claw herself out of this hard-boiled murder case?
