Warm turquoise waters and balmy ocean breezes do little to ease Henrie O's discomfort at having to attend the wedding of her ex-son-in-law Lloyd to Connor Bailey, a beautiful widow with a dark past and a knack for attracting men. Recently recovered from pneumonia, the retired Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist joins her grandchildren at an elegant oceanfront hotel, and is soon embroiled in a deadly puzzle that touches everyone connected with the impending union.

"Highly entertaining....[a] complex plot, local color, and vivid characters." (Publishers Weekly)
"If I were teaching a course on how to write a mystery, I would make Carolyn Hart required reading." (Los Angeles Times)
This was the first mystery by this author I've come across. For my purposes (running at gym, commuting), it was a fine listen, kept my interest for the most part, had engaging and sometimes annoying characters. By 2/3 of the way through, it was pretty clear who the bad guy was, and the ending was depressing and not too satisfying.
