Publisher's Summary

Thirty-six-year-old Nina Spark has done something crazy. After knocking back a night's worth of wine, she's bought a house in the Caribbean. Off the Internet. At 2:00 a.m.

Committing to the most impulsive decision she's ever made, Nina leaves her cheating ex-husband behind, puts her teaching career in New York on hold, and moves to Pineapple Cay - a land of white sand, cloudless skies, and turquoise waters.

Her new life is off to a lovely start: she's got a private beach, a handsome neighbor, and a cushy travel-writing assignment. Even Barry Bassett, a greedy land developer eager to push her out to make way for condos, can't darken her sunny new outlook.

But when Barry's wife goes missing, along with a priceless jeweled necklace, Nina finds herself at the center of the island's biggest whodunit. With her quirky but fiercely loyal new friends, Nina is determined to solve the mystery - so both she and Pineapple Cay can get back to easy living.

Revised edition: This edition of Sunbaked includes editorial revisions.

Surprisingly good

I wasn't sure I was going to like this book when I first started it. I'm glad I kept reading it. This is a very interesting and realistic book with engaging characters. I look forward to the next book.

A fun cozy mystery

Sunbaked is a fun cozy mystery to listen to. It made me want to buy an island home when I retire. Loved the characters, loved the setting, loved the narrator. I will probably check out other books in this series when I'm needing an island get away.

Perfect way to relax and escape!!

Engaging story that draws you in from the first page and never lets you go. Read the book first to enjoy Coffey's wonderful writing style, then listen to the perfect narration by Angela Dawe. There are two books in the series, but hopefully Junie Coffey will write many more.

Good start to a series!

The setting is perfect! Great for when you're missing the beach on a winter day. Definitely brings up the spirits. The characters are all unique, and have big personalities. I really enjoyed the cast. The narrator does a fantastic job and I'd definitely listen to more books narrated by her. The mystery wasn't too hard to figure out, but that was alright with me because the things the characters went thru to figure it out kept me entertained. Very good overall and I'll be reading more in this series.

A Recipe for Perfect

Great plot. Tropical setting - who doesn't love it. Wonderful characters-funny and quirky. And topped off with a really really good narrator. All the ingredients for a most enjoyable book.

crude language and unendearing characters

An okay mystery, but the vulgarity ruined it for me. Narrator was good, but I had to turn down the speed and the volume. I like a good mystery but not the crudeness, so I won't listen to the 2nd book.
