Publisher Description

A new home. A new beginning. A quiet life.

Or is it?

The beach house is Addison Lake's retirement plan. Memories of childhood holidays playing in the sand with her cousins come flooding back as soon as she sets foot in Getaway Bay. After the death of her husband, turning her new beach house into a bed and breakfast and reconnecting with family is just the tonic she needs. But just days after her move to the sleepy coastal town, Addison's new life turns on its head.

A fire at her cousin Layla's art gallery has devastating consequences.

There's a body in the rubble.

The stubborn local detective needs a fast arrest, and he has Layla in his sights.

With her cousin accused of murder, Addison must act. But between the beach house renovations, an ailing uncle, an over-protective daughter, and the quirky inhabitants of Getaway Bay, she has her work cut out.

Can Addison and her new friends uncover the real culprit before Layla is charged with murder?

The Getaway Bay cozy mysteries have everything you love – suspense to keep you guessing, twists you don't see coming, and characters you want to have a cup of tea with – plus an added dose of Aussie flavour.

...but she didn’t deserve to die

After visiting with her artist cousin Layla in Getaway Bay, Addison, a police detective’s widow and her teenage daughter, move into a large beach house in the town. When the cousin’s smart but not very likeable lawyer sister Jenna is murdered, and Layla’s art studio and gallery destroyed by fire, Addison offers comfort and support while investigating the crime. Possible suspects are eliminated one by one while secrets come to light. Twists and turns abound in this well written story, and characters have depth and their own stories. I’m on to the second book in this series as fast as I can click the “buy” button!!
