From USA Today bestselling authors Nicole Leiren and Elizabeth Ashby comes a decades old mystery...
When Lilly Waters moved to her ancestral small-town home of Danger Cove, Washington, she hoped for a walk down memory lane and a chance to connect with the family she never knew. What she got instead was a bartending job at the Smugglers’ Tavern, a mysterious man promising information about her grandfather—who had been listed as MIA since the Vietnam War—and a dead body she practically tripped over!
When the police point to Lilly as their number one suspect, she decides to take fate into her own hands. She enlists the help of a trivia loving waitress and a hot local security guard who sincerely hopes Lilly is doing more than just passing through. As Lilly searches for clues to clear her name, she uncovers puzzles that reveal secrets about her family and hidden treasure. Each clue brings her closer to the fortune...and to the real killer who will stop at nothing to get the gold.

Great read! Just what I am accustomed to getting I the Danger Cove series! Coming home again is not turning out as Lily expected, but the town people rally round her in their usual style, and help her fathom the mystery.
A very enjoyable book. I am looking forward to reading more books in this series.
Lilly Waters moves to the small town of Danger Cove, Washington, after losing her previous job. Her great grandmother, Mary Beth, was originally from Danger Cove and Lilly hopes that this will be the start of a new life for her in Danger Cove. Lilly takes a job working as a bartender for Hope at the Smuggler’s Tavern where she mixes up her famous “Smuggler’s Hurricane” drink. While working, a stranger notices the unique metal charm on her bracelet and asks Lilly about the charm and about her grandfather, Jack Waters, who has been missing in action since the Vietnam War. He tells her that her grandfather was a hero and that he has the matching charm to her bracelet. While on a walk, Lilly finds his murdered body before he can reveal more information. There is mystery, murder, treasure hunting and romance – what more could you ask for? Join Lilly as she tries to solve the mystery with help from her new friends in Danger Cove.
The thing I love about the Danger Cove series is that since there are a number of authors and stories/characters involved there is a recurring influx of stories to satisfy a desire for more Danger Cove books. In Heroes and Hurricanes Lilly Waters thinks things are looking up when she gets a bartending job at Smuggler's Tavern but she soon finds herself involved in trying to solve a murder and find gold hidden by her family years ago. The mix of mystery, intrigue and romance plus likeable characters have me anxiously awaiting the next Danger Cove book.
This murder mystery is full of twists, turns and interesting characters. I simply could not turn the pages fast enough!
