Dying in the middle of the summer in the Florida Keys is sweaty business.
Welcome to Tarpon Cove. Madison Westin has inherited her aunt's beachfront motel in the Florida Keys. Trouble is she’s also inherited a slew of colorful tenant's - drunks, ex-cons, and fugitives.
Only one problem: First, she has to wrestle control from a conniving lawyer and shady motel manager. With the help of her new best friend, whose motto is never leave home without your Glock, they dive into a world of blackmail, murder, and drugs.

This mystery is definitely cozy and it doesn't take a genius to figure it out but that's what made it fun. Pretty much a breezy tale although some serious things happen in the course of the story. I enjoyed the narrator a lot, and sometimes I really got the feeling that the first person narrator was real. Loved the many zany characters. I might try another audiobook from the series but might first check other reviews to see if there was a more developed story line. Overall a fun audiobook I'd recommend if you like cozy mysteries like me.
I listen to books while driving around town and this ticks all boxes for me. I'm able to take breaks while I do errands and come back to the story because it's not too complicated to keep everyone straight. The setting is South Florida and the author weaves a good plot into the environment.
The narrator, Julie Ann Taylor, does a great job of making all the characters come alive with their different personalities and behaviours. Sometimes it's hard too keep everyone straight in audio books but Ms. Taylor does a good job of keeping the voices is consistent for each character. She also conveys emotion really well. It's not the most complicated of books, nor is it spellbinding with tension- but for relaxing and entertainment it's great.
