Overview

The first book in Laura Bradford's debut Jenkins & Burns mystery series!

The Jersey Shore has always been known for warm sand, lively boardwalks, and the promise of carefree summer days. This season the small scenic town of Ocean Point, New Jersey, is not nearly as carefree as tourists would hope. The discovery of the body of a young woman is the first in a string of seemingly random and senseless murders, murders connected only by a warning from the same boardwalk fortune-teller.

It's a crisis that puts local detective Mitch Burns on edge, and his job in jeopardy. It's up to him to solve the crimes and protect the livelihood of the town, a livelihood that relies almost entirely on tourists. With the help of newly hired local reporter Elise Jenkins, the two step out to discover who the killer is, before another body is found.

This book was originally published under the title Jury of One.

Plot is rather trite and predictable, except for the identity of the criminal near the end of the story. ----- LME

To tell the truth, I can't believe this is an actual attempt at creating a murder mystery. The writing style is laughable as well as infantile. The dialogue is inane and the story line is absurd. My wife and I both read it and found it amusing which isn't the desired reaction the author expected. I feel bad writing such a scathing review, but I have to be truthful. We won't be reading any more books from this author.

Although short at 176 pages, Laura Bradford keeps things interesting. Cute budding romance, crazy killer, wacky characters including a psychic, what's not to like?

A good story that kept me guessing. A good list of possible suspects -> kind of like figuring out a puzzle. It also had just the right amount of romance in the mix.
