The Hurley Beach Mystery Series is a heartwarming clean cozy series about a family of detectives in a small North Carolina beach town. The matriarch of the family, Velma, runs a successful beauty salon, is active in her church, and occasionally asks too many questions. She's accompanied by her overfed pug, Henry. Her son Bernie is a retired police detective who now runs his father's bait and tackle store. As much as he tries to stay out of his past, he keeps being pulled back in. Sandy, Velma's niece, is a newly appointed Sheriff's Deputy who is trying to make her mark in the department while fighting some very old-fashioned norms.
