Reviews forThe Turtle Mound Murder (A DAFFODILS Mystery)
Owning a residence in New Smyrna Beach I was amazed at the authenticity of the area in this book. This book just made me laugh out loud. It is a wonderful lazy day and/or beach - poolside reading.THE TURTLE MOUND MURDER is an entertaining book with strongly defined characters who romp around New Smyrna Beach reliving their college days; tripping over dead bodies; and in general creating havoc and fun. Penned with tongue firmly in cheek, the characters are seen through straight woman Leigh's eyes. Her two pals are flirty and flaky, but she loves them and sees the trio through a string of mishaps.Witty and hilarious, The Turtle Mound Murder engages the reader from the very first page. Mary Clay writes a solid mystery, and Penny Sue, Ruthie and Leigh are all personalities most women have grown up with and can relate to. The jokes are insiders that all women relate to.This is a frist in the seriesread more
