This book gave me chuckles right from the first page. It's peopled with quirky but realistic characters with a very clever cat thrown in too. There are puzzles, twists and surprises to keep you eagerly turning the pages. It's well written and life in the marina is painted in a light hearted and fun way with no heaviness on sailing terms. Mollie doesn't know anything about boats so when she doesn't know her aft from her elbow, it's explained in a very easy to understand way. It's perfect as a summer read in the sun or curled up on a rainy day inside.
The only downside is that it may make you want to eat lots of chocolate (ok, that's not really a down!).
This was my first cozy mystery and I'm now eagerly looking forward to the next Mollie McGhie mystery.
