Murder, She Floats Publisher's Summary
It's the last long weekend of the summer and former investigator-turned-journalist Penelope Trubble has returned to her hometown of Bohemian Lake to help her father with his newspaper and private eye businesses.
With a contest prize of $10,000 on the line, the small town is more crowded than usual with summer vacationers on the hunt for a planted replica of the rare 1913 Liberty Head nickel that, according to local legend, was lost to Bohemian Lake over 50 years ago.
With the help of a spitfire local and the town's handsome new detective, Lucky Penny takes the bait and goes diving for the story behind the legend of the million-dollar coin. Unfortunately, her dive turns up more bodies than bounty.
The deeper she digs, the more secrets she unearths, but someone else is hunting for the real treasure, and they're willing to bury Penny.
