Book Review: Murder at the Marina

Murder at the Marina
Book Review

What would you do if your hubby gave you the worst anniversary gift ever?

A dilapidated sailboat for your anniversary—not very romantic. A dead body on board—even worse.
Mollie McGhie is hoping for diamonds for her tenth wedding anniversary. Instead, her clueless hubby presents her with a rundown boat. She's not impressed.
When she discovers someone murdered on board, things get even worse. Mollie hopes it will convince her husband to rethink his hare-brained scheme of sailing off into the sunset. Instead, he's more determined than ever to fix the boat up and set off to sea.
Poking her nose in where it doesn't belong, Mollie finds herself drawn into the tight-knit community living at Palm Tree Marina in Coconut Cove, a small town on the Florida coast. She uncovers a crime ring dealing in stolen marine equipment, eats way too many chocolate bars, adopts a cat, and learns far more about sailing than she ever wanted to.
Will Mollie be able to discover who the murderer is before her nosiness gets her killed?
Murder at the Marina is the first book in the light, humorous, and original Mollie McGhie cozy sailing mystery series. If you like kooky characters, adorable cats, and plenty of chocolate, you'll love this cozy mystery. Buy Murder at the Marina today and laugh out loud from the first page to the last.
My Review:

Mollie McGhie’s husband buys her a dilapidated sailboat for their 10th anniversary—even though she doesn’t sail. Fearful that he’s having a bidlife crisis, she goes along with her husband’s dream in the hopes that he loses interest once he realizes what bad condition the sailboat is in.
No such luck. Her hubs sees nothing but potential, even after the body shows up. And guess where it turns up? Sorry, no spoilers here!
As any good sleuth worth her salt, Mollie can’t help herself. Instead of talking her husband out of buying the boat, she gets sidetracked investigating the murder. Plenty of people had reasons to want him dead and Mollie is in a perfect position to find out whodunnit.
Mollie fits quickly into the marina scene, which is much like an RV park for sailboats. She meets all the residents aka suspects who live on their sailboats and together they make a cozy little community.
Just add murder and stir!
