Shake Down

Shake Down

When Juliette’s maid of honor and roommate, Daphne, doesn’t show up for the bridesmaid dinner, everyone in the small beach community of Sea Pine Island is concerned. More of a “where-is-she” than a whodunit, Shake Down is a modern mystery rather than the cozy mystery I expected.

Juliette and Daphne met on a Bachelor-style reality show, Down the Isle. In addition, Juliette met her fiance, Tucker, on the show. Juliette runs the Cake & Shake shop where Daphne works part-time. How could Daphne leave Juliette alone at a time like this?

Elli is enlisted to assist Juliette and her historic islander family find Daphne. Elli is the Director of a local philanthropic organization. But she is studying to be a private investigator. And so the game is afoot!

If you know going in that Shake Down is neither a cozy mystery nor a murder mystery, I believe you will enjoy this slow-burn of a novel. 3 stars.

Thanks to Henery Press and Edelweiss+for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
