It's Halloween, and Maria Dolores is hoping for a trouble-free weekend, the last one before the Lighthouse Farmers' Market closes for the winter. But her hopes are dashed when a state agricultural inspector threatens to shut down the market prematurely...right before a young woman falls to her death from the lighthouse cliff! The local homicide detective thinks it was suicide and won't listen to Maria's extensive list of possible suspects for foul play or the fact that the victim was known for getting into fights that went beyond mere words. Now, it's up to Maria to unearth a secret.

An awful narrator just made a pretty dismal and boring book even worse than it needed to be.

Letting go is not always easy, and in some cases it can be close to impossible, like it was for Leila. She was stuck on her husband and never thought she would ever stop loving him. Even through the constant pain and suffering, she still had hopes that he'd come back to her. Cold and unwilling to do right, her husband Devon did what was best for him and that was to treat Leila horribly and lie to her time after time, leaving her no choice but to be rescued by another man.

This book is do much nonsense. And if the thin plot was not bad enough, the narrator was absolutely awful! It was truly a struggle to hear her boring intonation.
