Florida sun? check Snappy dialog? check Fiesty heroine? check This hilarious cozy will make you want to read all of the Dead End Job mystery series.

Hmmm........lots of good reviews but for me this was just an average cozy. Nothing special but an "ok" time-waster. If you're looking for a challenging read, look elsewhere. That said, it's a pleasant beach book which I'm sure is what the author intends.

Synopsis: Helen and Phil are running a successful private investigation business. They are hired to find out who is trying to ruin the business of a man renting paddle boards on the beach. However, the case isn't simple. Political corruption and murder combine to make their job much more dangerous than they expected. Added to the complications is a call Helen's sister receives from the blackmailer finally requiring Helen to tell Phil about her part in the assault on her former husband.
Review: This story finally ties up the loose ends of Helen's divorce and refocuses new story lines on the detective agency. The underlying message - if there is one - was that communication is the key to working with a partner. ( )

Husband and wife PI team Helen Hawthorne and Phil Sagemont won’t be sparing the sunscreen on their latest assignment, but they’re about to find out murder is no day at the beach….

Will the Real Paddleboard Killer Please Stand Up?

There’s a dark cloud over Sunny Jim’s Safety First Parasailing and Stand-Up Paddleboarding business on Florida’s Riggs Beach—especially after one of his clients is killed in a tragic paddleboarding mishap. Sunny Jim is sure it was no accident, and he hires Helen and Phil to find the murderer.

Between cutthroat competitors poaching his territory, the city threatening to revoke his license, a restaurant owner wanting his beach spot for a parking lot, and a wrongful death suit filed by the victim’s husband, Sunny Jim may soon be up the creek without a paddle.

But he does have Helen and Phil on his side, and as the couple start to investigate, they discover dark undercurrents of corruption behind the cheerful facades of the beachfront businesses, as well as domestic secrets. But the sands of time are running out, and if they don’t catch the killer soon, Sunny Jim won’t be the only one to go under….
