*** A Classic Whodunit with Senior Sleuths ***

Tourist season is about to start, and murder is the last thing on the minds of the locals in Mooseamuck Island, Maine ... but that's about to change.

When local psychic Zoila Rivers is found dead at the zen garden, retired police consultants Dominic Benedetti and Claire Watkins are forced to team up to catch the killer. Too bad Claire and Dom don't always see eye to eye.

But with an island full of locals who all have secrets, Claire and Dom have to put aside their differences in order to solve the case before the police arrest the wrong person and a killer goes free.

Will Claire and Dom figure out whose secret was worth killing for in time to stop the killer from claiming another victim?

I enjoyed this book. I admit that I figured it out before the two main characters but it was still an enjoyable read. Dom and Claire are older sleuths that have worked together in the past and are now thrown together again. They have different ways of investigating which makes the story interesting looking at it from both of their perspectives. I will continue on with this series.

A new fun cozy mystery series set on Mooseamuck Island off the coast of New England.  The engaging main characters are Claire a retired psychologist, and Dominic a retired investigator.  When someone from Crab Cove is murdered they jump to solve the murder to protect an island native. Ben, who they are sure has been framed.  Of course all the town characters become involved in this entertaining tale,  There is a wandering island cat who Claire calls Porch Cat, who seems to be bringing her clues.  Romeo the parakeet is learning to talk and tries to tell Dom things too.  Altogether an engaging and fun read, I think you'll enjoy this new series by Leighann Dobbs.  I'm really looking forward to the next installment.   I highly recommend all her books, they are well written and so much fun to read I'm sure you'll enjoy them too!

This book is a boring acount of senior citizens reliving their former lives as detectives. The story is so simple you know who did it half way through the book. A complete waste of time.

Retirement for Claire, a psychologist and Dom, a Boston detective gets shaken up with a murder on the island. These are two opposites in many ways but their strengths compliment each other.

Liked the cute touch of having the cat.

I disagree with the reviewer who wrote that this book was a waste of time, because this person figured out "whodunit" before the main characters in the book did so. Hmm. That's surely not why a person reads a book, to get to the end -- or to solve a crime? The trip is it, for me. And it was a delightful one, imho!

In the style of Braun and others, decent light mystery with aging nosy neighbors in the mix of the whodunit. Good read for small periods of porch sitting.

It was an interesting story line but somewhat annoying the way the 2 "Pros" overlooked some things and had a narrow minded view of the clues. Maybe I just watch too much TV, but I had the mystery solved by page 70.
