Publisher's Summary

It’s the dead of winter and struggling actress and wedding-cake decorator Piper Donovan is thrilled to be in warm and romantic Sarasota, Florida, enjoying the powdery white beaches, soothing seas, and golden sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. She and her family are there to celebrate her beloved cousin’s wedding. Not only is Piper creating the sugar-sand-dollar-festooned wedding cake, she’s also the maid of honor.

But a cloud seems to hover over the whole affair. Shortly after a bridesmaid mysteriously disappears, a kindly neighbor’s car is run off the road and a prospective witness, an innocent Amish teenager, is threatened to keep silent. Then a body is found on the wedding beach. With the nuptials threatened, it falls to Piper to unmask a killer. Could it be the wedding planner with something to hide? A doctor and his wife who collect unusual Japanese figurines? The best man, an ex-drug dealer with lecherous eyes and roving hands? What about her cousin’s future stepfather - or even the bridegroom himself?

As Piper gets close to figuring out who’s been covering his guilty footprints in the sand, the cunning killer has already set his sights on Piper as his next victim!

Not the best. ...

I love most of Mary Jane Clark 's books, but
struggled to finish this book. Storyline is slow.

  • Overall
  • Performance
  • Story

lots of twists and turns, everyone is suspect

Would you listen to Footprints in the Sand again? Why?

No, the narrator gets a bit tiring and I almost quit when she horribly mispronounced cities and areas. If you are going to narrate about a known setting, learn how to pronounce the names. Pitiful. Also her voices all sounded alike, she had one female style and one male style. Again, if you want to narrate learn how to do it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Footprints in the Sand?

Good story overall. Everyone was suspect right to the end.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

See above, terrible narrator

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No
