Of course she gets involved in the requisite Cozy murder, when she comes across a body while walking her dog one day. This isn't the first murder investigation she gets involved in, and the new detective in town suspects Annie is somehow involved.
There is an ex-fiancé, a wedding to plan for, missing money, jewelry and a mysterious employee. If there is a formula for to this type of writing, author Cole has it down pat, yet somehow it works for her.
Her supporting characters are fun do get to know (although #4 in her Black Cat Cafe series, this is the first I have read), and her protagonist is easy to like. The story moves along quickly, and the mystery gets solved, but several points seem a bit unfinished. Even though the plot jumped around here and there, it was a comfortable read and did what it set out to do. It gave the reader the feel of small town life...and death.
Fun beach read.
