Overview

A haunted hotel, a family curse, mysterious Cossacks, hidden treasure, murdered guests...what looked to be a routine family reunion is turning into a serious Bad Hair Day indeed. One that's trouble all the way down to the...Dead Roots.

Marla shore thought the only tricky part of the reunion at Florida's historic Sugar Crest Plantation Resort would be introducing her fiancé, Detective Dalton Vail, to her family...and vice versa. But that was before her Aunt Polly was found suffocated in her bed.

It turns out that her family has a tangle of ties connected to Sugar Crest, including Aunt Polly's father, who once owned the plantation-and hid a fortune in gems somewhere on the grounds. And though Sugar Crest is slated for demolition, many people would profit if it wasn't destroyed...and some just might go to any lengths to make sure it remains standing...

To top it all off, the plantation was built on an Indian burial mound, which Marla knows is never a good idea-and then the grounds keeper turns up dead! Whatever is going on at Sugar Crest, someone is willing to go to great lengths to keep it hidden. But he or she hasn't planned on Marla, who will stop at nothing to learn the truth before the killer strikes again...

"A winning cozy."

    Family Reunion and Murder

    I loved this cozy mystery set in a Florida resort. Ms. Cohen's eloquent style shines through and makes you want to not put the book down. I loved reading about all the family members and the humorously named characters like the groundskeeper names Mulch and the chef named Brownie! Another winner from Nancy J. Cohen.

    Delightfully entertaining amateur sleuth tale

    Floridian hairstylist Marla Shore is for once taking time off from overseeing her salon to go to the family reunion with her fiancée Detective Dalton Vail at the Sugar Crest Resort. The event was the inspiration of Marla¿s Aunt Polly who wants to right past wrongs and let hidden secrets see the light of day and bring the family together. When they arrive at the resort they learn that members of the family once owned the place and it is supposed to be haunted by various spirits dead throughout the decades............. Murder isn¿t confined to the past as a workman is killed while up on a ladder. Vail is suspicious but the house doctor lists it as an accident and the police listen to him rather than the outsider. Polly wants Marla¿s help in finding letters she wrote to someone named Vincent but she forgot where she put them. She also wants Marla to look for gemstones that were supposedly hidden by the owner (who was one of the family) family in the main building. Polly is murdered before Marla can find what she is looking for and when another death on the property happens, Marla decides to investigate on her own and hope she doesn¿t become murder victim number four.................. The main building of the resort is riddled with secret passages, a hidden floor and cleverly disguised entrances and exits to the passageways adding a gothic ambience to DEAD ROOTS. One of Nancy J. Cohen most incredible skills is letting her characters grow and change as they experience new things. The deepening romantic relationship of Vail and Marla adds a nice twist of spice to a cleverly crafted and well designed who-done-it. This delightfully entertaining amateur sleuth tale is one Ms. Cohen¿s best in this long running series............... Harriet Klausner
