Overview

Book one in the Charlotte Diamond mystery series.

When FBI Investigator, Charlotte Diamond, retired to Diamond Cottage near Maryland’s eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, she thought she had left her life of crime — solving it, that is — behind her, and is struggling to find a new purpose in life. But the small waterfront community of Hopewell on the Choptank, with its wealthy artistically inclined inhabitants, is hiding old crimes and dark secrets, including an almost forgotten murder, beneath its outward quiet and affluence.

A surprising number of people from the community have intersecting pasts and dark secrets that Charlotte is unaware of and that become downright murderous, coming to a head when blockbuster movie actress, Brenda Brandon, arrives in the village in full retreat from a recent tragedy in her life. Brenda also brings unexpected romance into Charlotte’s previously straight life. And Sam, the neglected husky who has attached himself to Charlotte, knows more about what is going on than he can tell her, even with his howling.

This was a fairly well written story but almost the first half of the book nothing much happened. Then the murder and it gave you something to hang on to and speculate about. I almost feel like the most important character in the book and the most interesting was the dog, Sam.

Enjoyable book with lots of twists and surprises. I'd happily recommend it to any lover of gentler mysteries.
