A mystery that “sparkles like the South Florida sunshine” starring “a warm and funny heroine” (Nancy Martin, author of the Blackbird Sisters Mysteries).
Nestled between fast-track Fort Lauderdale and nouveau riche Boca Raton, the once sleepy beach town of Palmetto is plagued by progress. The latest news has Ocean Vista condo board president Stella Sajak and other residents in an uproar. Developers plan to raze the property and put up a glitzy resort. But when Stella says she’ll go to City Hall and fight this to the death, no one thinks to take her statement literally.
And when Kate Kennedy begins to investigate the murder, she discovers that this little corner of the sunshine state is cursed with corruption, unsavory characters, and a very dark cloud overhead . . .
