Publisher's Summary

Brenda Sheffield Rivers and her husband Detective Mac Rivers have returned from their honeymoon in Italy. They arrive in the depths of winter, ready to prepare for the upcoming Winter Festival. Tourists begin to flood the town and Sheffield Bed and Breakfast is filling up fast. 

There is only one vacant room due to a cancellation. Brenda is sure her young Reservationist Allie Williams will have it filled before the day is over. An older couple arrives and introduces themselves as Marilyn and Richard Martin. They are assigned the available room once occupied by the slain actress Ellen Teague. Rachel and Thomas Wellington check in followed by Photographer Philip Turner. Philip is good-looking and an obvious flirt. Allie is caught up in his compliments and hopes his attentions won't deter her from winning the coveted skating contest she will compete in at the Festival.  

Mac returns to work the next day and expects a long day when he discovers there has been a rash of petty thievery going on around Sweetfern Harbor while on his honeymoon. Two days later, he is found stuffed in a closet on the back stairwell of the bed and breakfast, semi-conscious. To add to the tragedy, his daughter, who is owner of Jenny's Blossoms, is missing. Brenda is torn between worry over Mac's condition and her beloved step-daughter's disappearance. As the mystery begins to unfold Mac recovers and he and Jenny's fiancé Detective Bryce Jones are determined to find Jenny.  

In the meantime, Brenda is horrified to learn her guests aren't who they pretend to be. Her concern turns to dread when she wonders if Jenny is alive or dead. Above all, the hunt to find her is imperative. Mac has two suspects, guests of Brenda's, in custody. It is a matter of which one, or if either, will confess to what happened to Jenny Rivers.   

Brenda vows to uncover the motive for their crimes and deception. She must find Jenny at all costs.

This proves a cop's job doesn't stop at the arrest

Minor break and enters occurred across our idealic little township. It escalates, and ends up a lot more.
Unfortunately, it looks like the B&B was housing criminals, up to no good.
It's an episode packed with intrigue and drama.

Fast paced, action packed...cozy mystery!

This is my first venture into this cozy mystery series and, if this book is an indication of the others, it will not be the last. It is a quick read/listen and is fast paced with lots of action. Quite enjoyable and definitely recommend.

Enjoyable

Returning from their honeymoon. The inn Is soon filled, and then mayhem comes into play. What was behind Mac getting stuffed into a closet. Then Jenny is kidnapped. A good beginning to the series, and enjoyed the narration. Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
