Description:

With her wedding plans in place and her future mother-in-law settling in at the Gray Whale Inn, it’s a rare patch of smooth sailing for innkeeper Natalie Barnes. Even Natalie’s guests—a mystery writer and a woman researching her grandfather’s decades-old disappearance from Cranberry Island—are interesting and enjoyable, adding a lively element to the dinner conversations.

But while picking berries for her Lemon Blueberry Pudding Cake, Natalie makes a ghastly discovery — a dead man in a skiff adrift on the waves. With people she cares about on the hook for murder, Natalie must act quickly to bail out her friends and catch the killer.

My Thoughts:

Natalie is up to her eyes in murder when Derek ends up dead in the water and it's up to Natalie to find out what is happening on her little island and who is doing things they shouldn't be. Along with helping her guests solve an old disappearance to find out what happened to one of her guest's grandfather.

This book had so much going on between drug smuggling, murder, and a whole lot of mystery with her guests at the Inn at times it felt like Natalie wasn't making any progress.  I really enjoyed this series it's a great adventure to go on and one you feel like going back to when there is a new book to read.
