Murder in Mystic Cove

Guarding the manicured wilds of an exclusive retirement community might seem like exile to a homicide cop. But Addie Gorsky moved to Florida to live with her ailing father, not to chase criminals. In fact, her new job as head of Mystic Cove security is a nice break from all the big-city bloodshed.

But when the community's most despised resident is found dead

Overview

Guarding the manicured wilds of an exclusive retirement community might seem like exile to a homicide cop. But Addie Gorsky moved to Florida to live with her ailing father, not to chase criminals. In fact, her new job as head of Mystic Cove security is a nice break from all the big-city bloodshed.

But when the community's most despised resident is found dead in his tricked-out golf cart, Addie's ready for action. The local cops focus on the obvious suspect—the unhappy wife—but Addie knows there's more to the story. When the sheriff asks for assistance, she can't resist. Only the deeper she digs, the more questions she turns up.

Surrounded by secretive, tight-lipped residents, Addie soon finds herself hip-deep in a mystery as tangled as cypress roots—and directly in the sights of a cool, clever killer who has no compunction about killing again…

I usually enjoy mysteries, but this is one of the most boring books I have ever read. Quit reading about halfway through.

This is a captivating ,warm ,and realistic story. There are flashes of humor interspersed with sadness.A true joy to read.

I enjoyed this mystery very much. Great plot line, lots of twists and turns, interesting cast of characters. I figured out who-dun-it about halfway through, but still wanted to read on. I would have given it more stars, but the editing was atrocious! Wrong words, extra words, it threw me out of the story every time. It makes me reluctant to read anything else by this publisher.

Very good read. The story kept your interst. I will read more of this writer's books.

I thought it was engaging, marvelous and rather extraordinary considering this is the author's first work. Yes, there were a few sentences here and there that could have been rewritten but she may have been her own editor. We can only look for more great things from Ms. Anderson, the gender's answer to David Simon.

This mystery is NOT for people like me; I prefer the old-fashioned gothic suspence mysteries. This one was full of sexual tones that I heartily disliked; I did not even get past the first chapter.

I enjoyed the book very much and the author held my attention thoroughly! Good "who dun-it" storyline. Would recommend. Good writing; no errors (as one reviewer stated there were errors. There were none!)
