When Madison Westin, the main character, inherits her aunt's beachfront motel in the Florida Keys, or so she thinks. Tarpon Cove is not your typical sleepy beach town: Seduction, drunks, ex-cons and fugitives are not the usual fare for someone looking to start a new chapter in their life. Wrestling control of the property from both the lawyer and the conniving motel manager will be no easy feat. But Madison likes living on the edge so she feels right at home. Bullets fly, a dead body turns up, a kidnapping and blackmail. Madison really has to learn not to leave home without her Glock or it could get her killed.
This book was sent to me via Deborah Brown for a honest and fair review.
In this book we meet Madison Westin who's attending her aunts funeral which is a total screwy event from the get go. Something doesn't add up right to Madison who has been informed by her aunt's attorney that everything in place is how her Aunt Elizabeth wanted it.
Madison inherits a motel property but first she has to get past a jerk of a manager and her aunt's just as much of a jerk attorney. Add to this the mix of colorful people Madison keeps meeting due to her aunt. They are just about every type of person thinkable.
In some ways this book reminds me of Stephanie Plum except that Madison Westin is a hell of a lot more fun to read about. Madison's group of friends far out does Stephanie's. Which I found refreshing to have all these great characters that are in Madison's life and have her back. I really enjoyed the twists and turns this book took, along with Madison's family her brother Brad and her mother were refreshing to see family that does get along.
