    Cozy Mystery With a Touch of Humor and Romance

    One of the wonderful things about books is their ability to transform you to other places, both real and imaginary. HIGH TIDE takes the reader to the quaint English village of Lowenna where a cast of quirky characters are introduced and the apparent drowning of a local man leads to suspense and intrigue. Lowenna has been hit by a storm. Between the rising river and the ocean's high tide, shop keepers sandbagged their businesses to keep the water out. At Lowenna Antiques owners Giovanna "Gia" Mathews, Rose Lanner and Susan Brea watch the rising water as boats navigate the street. The trio are shocked as a lifeless body is pulled from the raging water. They soon learn the body was Joe Newlyn, a man most of the villagers dislike for many reasons. Gia has doubts Joe's death was an accident and begins to dig a little deeper into the man's background. Gia is also having to deal with several personal issues. It seems her boyfriend's fiancée decides to show up, she believes her best friend is being scammed by a sexy German, and now her mother wants to move to Lowenna after finding an alligator in her swimming pool. Author Ann Summerville has created a village of unique and lovable characters. Her vivid descriptions of the area will have you hearing the waves lap against the rocks and almost feel the cool ocean breeze on your face. As Gia searches for clues she will encounter a mix of suspects and victims. You'll find yourself laughing one minute and holding your breath the next. HIGH TIDE is the second installment in the Lowenna Series, but is a stand alone book. The residents of this quaint little village will warm your heart while keeping you guessing was Joe murdered or not.
