"Very Fun Read. Reminds me of Janet Evanovich. Quirky old ladies mentoring whacky younger woman, wrapped in a mystery." ~ Saraguin Harperon "Laugh out loud funny; woke my husband out of a sound sleep once..." - S. Bollinger
A Twisty Puzzler Complete with Dogs, Romance and a Backyard Body...Solve the mystery before you die laughing!
Book one of the laugh-out-loud mystery series from Wall Street Journal and USA TODAY Best-Selling author Amy Vansant. If Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum and the Golden Girls had a baby, it would be the Pineapple Port series!
It's bad enough finding a body in your back yard—especially when foul play is pretty much a certainty. But when you discover the bones are somebody's long-missing mom, it's tragic. And if that person is the hottest guy in town, you've just made the world's worst first impression!
Charlotte Morgan's got every reason to take an intensely personal interest, even if solving a murder’s a bit of a stretch for a 26-year-old amateur sleuth raised in a 55-plus Florida community--golf-cart racing's usually about as exciting as it gets for her. But things are heating up in her world, and not just in the romance department. The hot guy's uncle is Charlotte's number one suspect. He's debonair, he's mysterious, he's just a little too slick—and he's dating a friend of Charlotte's. If she doesn't step up, who knows what could happen?
In Amy Vansant’s first Pineapple Port cozy mystery, quips get flung and puns get slung, making for a hilarious read, but even better, Pineapple Port's just a place you want to hang out. Charlotte's a pretty unique female protagonist, being the only chick, as a friend observes, in a roomful of hens, but Pineapple Port is a wonderful character in itself, as much a parallel universe as Hogwarts, with its own exotic customs and quirks. People have nicknames like Jenny Teacup (because she collects tea sets), exercise comes in the form of water aerobics, and Poolside Breakfast is a big social event. Vansant has perfect pitch when it comes to her human characters as well. No one can mention a restaurant without someone saying, "They have the best French toast!"
The Pineapple Port Mystery Series is perfect for fans of those reassuringly cozy mysteries set in small towns, from Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple right on through Carolyn Hart and up to Jana DeLeon. If you happen to like romantic comedy, or even just funny mysteries—especially those with intrepid women sleuths-- you'll devour it!
