Berkley Prime Crime Mystery
Evie Bloomfields takes a trip to Mackinac Island in Michigan to help her boss’s father, Rudy. Rudy owns a local bike shop, but broke his leg and needs all the help he can get. If Evie does this for her boss, she figures it helps her chances for a promotion.
Evie is stunned when she finds out there are no vehicles on the island. The popular mode of transportation is the bicycle. She begins to wonder if Mackinac Island was a good choice for her. When a wealthy citizen dies in an “accident”, Rudy is arrested for the crime. Evie is sure her promotion is in jeopardy as long as Rudy is in jail. Besides, she doesn’t believe he did it. Unsure of who exactly did do the deed, Evie sets up her own investigation not only to save Rudy’s life, but to save her chances of getting a job promotion.
What a great cast of the quirkiest characters you’ll ever read about. Each one has their own story to tell with both drama and humor. There’s some romance mixed in with the mystery to give readers a fun, exciting, romantic mystery to sink their teeth into. Everyone should take advantage of an armchair visit to beautiful Mackinac Island. Great idea to set the book in a real live location. I felt as if I was right on the island with Evie searching for clues.
I adore Duffy Brown’s “Consignment Shop Mystery” series and this one is equally as wonderful. It’s off to an excellent start and I’m already looking forward to the next one.
