Publisher Description

From USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Ashby and Sibel Hodge comes murder in a small town...

Murder is on the menu, and someone's about to get served.

Hope Foster's motto is to let fate lead you—which it did in her case right to the quiet town of Danger Cove. But when the owner of the Smugglers' Tavern, where Hope tends bar, is murdered, suddenly fate puts Hope squarely in the role of "prime suspect" in her employer's murder. Not only is she the last one to see him alive, but a new will also reveals that her employer left his whole estate to Hope instead of his ungrateful daughter Elise and nephew Carter. With the local police convinced Hope is a manipulative "Black Widow" killer, Hope's peaceful life in Danger Cove is about to turn into a white water ride. Along with a sexy underwater archaeologist from England, in town searching for a lost shipwreck, an international yoga guru, and a reformed alcoholic patron, Hope sets out to prove her innocence. But can Team Hope catch the real killer before she trades in her bartending apron for an orange prison jumpsuit?

A cocktail Cove caper!

When Hope Foster reports for work at the Smugglers' Tavern where she tends bar, she is horrified to find her boss's lifeless body. As the police investigation zeroes in on her, she teams up with her yoga-guru friend Ruby, bar regular Vernon, and a sexy underwater archeologist named Harvey to find the real killer before all hope is lost.

A fun read! I loved the chemistry between Hope and Harvey and the underwater archeology.

A Terrific Mystery

This is the first book I have read in this series and now I’m hooked! Murder, intrigue and a possible pirate’s treasure! This is a quintessential murder mystery at its best! I loved the characters; they were very well developed and believable. Hope Foster’s boss turns up dead and the police don’t want to investigate they just want to pin it on her. Therefore, Hope must investigate the murder to try and stay out of jail. Her friends Rudy and Vernon agree to help her. Along comes adorable and charming Harvey whom Hope is attracted to and the fun begins!!! You won’t want to miss it

Murder and Mai Tais is great reading.

Murder and Mai Tais is great reading. A well written mystery about murder in Danger Cove. The story kept me interested and I didn't have a clue who did it until the end. I didn't want the story to end. I loved the characters and look forward to the next book.
