In Danger at the Cove, Evie and her sister Margot are renovating an Art Deco hotel on Tregarrick Island off the Cornish coast of England. When Margot invites her old Hollywood friend, Louise, to the still-a-construction-zone hotel to help with marketing, the dead bodies start piling up. And what’s with the recently discovered shipwreck near their coast? Could it contain treasure?
I really enjoyed the first book in this Island Sisters Mystery series, Death at High Tide. Unfortunately, this book failed to grab my interest as well. The book begins as a character-driven cozy mystery. I couldn’t start my armchair detecting until the victim is found at about the midpoint in the book. That felt like a long-time to wait. However, once the mystery got going it was a great twisty ride that even included a treasure hunt on a shipwreck!
Even though I didn’t feel as much of an Agatha Christie vibe with Danger at the Cove, the book was still fun to read! 4 stars!
Thanks to Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
