Molly Tinker and husband, Police Chief Eric Wade, go to a Florida paradise to visit an old college friend.
They soon encounter evil in paradise when Molly's friend goes missing. Molly and Eric spend their vacation tracking down a killer, or maybe two killers.
This is a light and entertaining mystery with the endearing Molly Tinker back as super sleuth.
Murder on Vacation is a light read that I finished in one sitting. The characters are likable enough and the story is enjoyable if you are willing to not let its flaws distract you.
I felt that the story was rushed and needed to slow down just a bit and let the readers savor the heat of the Florida sun and the salty ocean waves, which could have been described in more detail, and let them get to know the characters better.
In addition, I felt it could have used a good editing I also question how agreeable the Chief of Police would be to not only accept Molly and Eric’s help with the investigation, but also deputizing them. The ending may not be as satisfying as some readers may like.
However, if you are looking for a quick read that doesn’t require your undivided attention, I would say give Murder on Vacation a try. It’s a good way to see if you like the series and the profits are donated to the PCA Resuce.
I grew up reading Nancy Drew and graduated to Spencer, Stephanie Plum, Lucas Davenport, J.W. Jackson, and Gabriel Allon.
Five years ago, loving standard poodles, I decided to write a mystery series featuring a poodle and donate all profits to PCA Rescue.
What an adventure I've had, solving murders with my heroine, Molly Tinker.
