A WEEKEND ADVENTURE IN AMERICA'S OLDEST SEASIDE RESORT
The set-up for this fluffy and fun little mystery is perfect: a spunky female amateur detective, suddenly unattached, by herself at a romantic B&B in the dead of winter. (It was a dark and stormy night.) A parlor full of character-suspects. The game is afoot! The best character, however, is Cape May itself. This author demonstrates her extensive knowledge of the town and surrounding environs and really showcases Cape May's "personality". There might be one omission, because the wonderful opportunities presented by what is undeniably the Garden State's foodie capital aren't used. Except for a couple of meals of burgers-&-beer we're shown almost none of the world-class local haute cuisine scene. This novel is part of a series, and one can only hope that in a future outing Meg will return, maybe in the summer and maybe with a boyfriend, so that this author can again show yet another side of the often-maligned "Jersey Shore".Was this review helpful?
