Publisher's Summary

Amanda Graham should be happy with her newly-inherited historic inn, a fat cat named Oscar, and living in a small Oregon beach town, but a terrible discovery between the dunes on the coast and she's right back in the soup, trying to solve a murder and save her friend! Sure, maybe he was such a rotten person he deserved to die, but as secrets start to be revealed, Amanda is drawn deeper into danger and intrigue. With a harvest festival looming, and tourists starting to come back to visit, figuring out how and why he died is the best way to protect the town, and her sweet friend.

She's turned her back on LA and life in a gray office cubicle, so her best bet is to dig in and fight for her new hometown.

Dune, Dock and a Dead Man

I was really surprised by the ending. I am loving the slow romance between the Heroine and the Detective. I loved the interaction between the characters. This was a delightful story.

Narrator not quite right for the story

Really liked the book and the author’s writing, but don’t feel the narrator does justice to the story. Somehow, the “sweety-sweet” voice just doesn’t work for the storyline - or for me.

Enjoyed the story, narrator choice could be better.

This was a good story, though one of the characters from the previous title now lives independently. In a previous title she was a resident in a nursing home. Overall the story was enjoyable though the narrator choice could be better. Her voice is much older than the character is supposed to be and often she comes across monotone and flat.
