Publisher's Summary

Jewel Mantelle has never lived in the South, much less on the coast, so moving from Chicagoland to the historic North Florida coastal town of Sophia Island seems like just the adventure to fix her marriage. However, when she arrives, she finds that it’s awfully hot and humid there and that these Southern folks really like to hug. 

Her husband’s past on the island includes a creaky old house in the historic district and lots of nosy relatives he’d forgotten to mention. When one of the Mantelle cousins turns up dead, Jewel needs something she’s never really had before — friends. As her lunch bunch puts on their detective caps to get to the bottom of this murder, Jewel discovers that she may get more than she bargained for out of Sophia Island. 

The Manatee Did It is a clean and cozy beach mystery set in a historic small town. It’ll keep you listening well after bedtime and slathering on more sunscreen to get a few more poolside listens in.

Welcome home!

This is a tight, engaging mystery with a lovable cast of hometown sleuths. Perfect for those who enjoy an older protagonist. The narrator was great!
