Murder Hooks A Mermaid is the second in the A Haunted Souvenir Shop Mystery series.
Glory Martine owns, with her cousin Peter, Southern Treasures, a souvenir shop. She had inherited the shop, along with Bluebeard, a parrot, from her Uncle Louis. But Uncle Louis hasn't completely crossed over, instead has become part of Bluebeard.
Glory has just opened the shop for the day, when her best friend Karen arrives all upset. Every week Glory, Karen, and their friends Felipe and Ernie prepare a tradition evening supper. This week it is Karen's turn to cook and her ex-husband has promised her to catch some fresh fish for her. But instead loans his charter boat to his "good for nothing" younger brother, Bobby. Shortly after Bobby makes bail, along with three men who he has taken for a diving trip, one of the men is found with a gaff hook from the boat Bobby has used.
Karen still has feeling for her ex's family and being a news reporter at a local radio station she wants to help get Bobby out of trouble. So with the help of Glory, they set out to get to the bottom of this matter. Time to check with other fisherman who offer their boats for charter to learn more about the men who wanted to go on the diving trip.
The best of the investigation is that Glory is able to spend some time with Jake who owns the bookstore across the street. There is a mutual interest between them and maybe Glory will get to know a little bit about him. Bluebeard once again offers information that Glory is sure is a clue, but not sure how it applies.
This series has great bunch of characters who one wouldn't mind knowing. Sly, who has a auto salvage yard and a junkyard dog named Bobo, figured a little bit more in this book. Everyone from book one is back to help Glory and Karen get to the bottom of the mess.
Looking forward to book 3. Well developed story and easy to follow. Recipes are also included.
