Buried in Briny Bay by Bobbye Terry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Buried in Briny Bay by Bobbye Terry may be the perfect beach read this summer. It's a fast, funny mystery with a pair of zany, wisecracking female sleuths named Roxie and Trixie, who can't seem to stay out of trouble.
Another reviewer mentioned a similarity to the old "I Love Lucy" shows and after hearing that, it's hard for me to avoid writing that, too, because it was very apt.
You see, Roxie has been going around town venting her frustration at her nemesis, Georgia Collins, by detailing macabre ways she'd like to see Georgia die. Unfortunately, when Georgia dies by one of those very ways, it starts to look bad for Roxie. It gets even worse when other victims are found, each dispatched with one of Roxie's methods.
Roxie and Trixie soon hire Greg Norris to help them investigate and...well, I don't want to spoil it.
The story moves quickly, so it really is great for relaxing at the beach.
If you like cozy mysteries with a touch of humor, you won't be disappointed!
