Sophie Maxwell and her entire family was spending time at the Birches. Her Uncle Paul, whose wife died a year earlier was finally getting around to reading her will. But the fun vacation turned to tragedy, when Bev the family housekeeper is found murdered on the beach. Sophie gets Faith Fairchild, a neighbor and amateur sleuth to look into it. Was it her Uncle Simon? Her mother? And why was she killed? Was she somehow connect to the will?

I really liked this, it wasn’t as fast paced as I would have liked, but it was an enjoyable story. A lot of time, four chapters, was spent on character development which seemed a bit excessive at times. But the characters were interesting, and had realistic personalities and motivations. The plot was kind of run of the mill. But overall, I found it to be an enjoyable mystery.
