Overview

Meg Daniels never had the displeasure of meeting Dallas Spenser, but when the body of the prosperous Brit washes up on Long Beach Island with a bullet in the back, it immediately derails her romantic vacation plans. She and her significant other, P.I. Andy Beck, had hoped to be sailing the Caribbean by now, but Spenser's murder presents some serious obstacles.

For one thing, sultry Page Spenser-wife of the deceased and a prime suspect in his killing-has turned to old flame Andy in her "time of need." Equally vexing for Meg, the homicide detective assigned to the case suspects Andy is in bed with Page-literally and figuratively-and he's made it clear the P.I. should stick around while the investigation proceeds. As Meg sets out to clear Andy (and protect him from the seductive widow) she soon learns that Dallas Spenser had more skeletons than his Loveladies mansion has closets. The ensuing adventure takes more twists and turns than a boardwalk roller coaster, and involves Meg with an unforgettable cast of characters-not least among them a cub reporter with bad eating habits and a mechanic who communicates with the dead. From the beaches of Holgate and Beach Haven at the southern end of "LBI" to the grand homes of Loveladies and the famed Barnegat Lighthouse at the north, author Jane Kelly delivers an irresistible blend of mystery and humor in Wrong Beach Island-her third and most deftly written novel. Meg Daniels, Kelly's reluctant heroine, may be the funniest and most original sleuth ever to kill time at the Jersey shore.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Meg Daniels has good reason to be grumpy: she and PI beau Andy Beck were supposed to be vacationing in Antigua, but thanks to Andy's manipulative bombshell of an ex, he's signed on to investigate the death of her sugar daddy husband. Andy becomes a suspect; Meg looks for ways to clear him; the bombshell's got tricks up her sleeve; and the dead man possesses a secret past (not to mention a long list of aliases) in Jane Kelly's Wrong Beach Island, a Jersey Shore mystery that's boosted by short chapters and a clipping pace, but marred somewhat by Meg's frequent gristly New York attitude.
