With the holidays gone and Hillside Manor almost empty, Innkeeper Judith McMonigle Flynn has a bad case of the blues. A housesitting stint at her aunt and uncle's retirement home on Whoopee Island with cousin Renie seems like the ideal pick-me-up. But it isn't long before a dead body pops up in their vicinity. Not surprising in an area full of older folks - until they learn it wasn't a bad ticker that did in the victim, but a very sharp knife. With clouds of suspicion hovering over her and Renie, Judith reluctantly begins sleuthing. The victim reputedly didn't have an enemy in the world - except for the killer. Digging for clams and answers, the cousins discover that retirement can be deadly - at least among the eclectic, eccentric residents of Obsession Shores.

I enjoyed this audiobook, The author's B&B series has always been a favorite of mine. My only dislike would be the length of the story. A few too many unnecessary details and imagery, something a bit shorter will be my next choice.
My time could have been spent reading about the beauty of the northwest, seas, trees,animals, homes, just giving a flavor of the area, fauna to food could have enhanced this story. However most of the book was endless banter of retirees.
The long wait for something to get started. Thinking all this pointless chatter might be what I sound like to some.
yes, but not my cup of tea so to speak, I will avoid future books,
