Sea of Troubles, by Janet L. Smith
A woman who may be abducted and a man who’s definitely dead are just the beginning for Seattle attorney Annie MacPherson in Sea of Troubles (206 pages), whose search for answers leads her to a past faded but not forgotten. A trip to the elegant Windsor Resort on Orcas Island seems like a vacation, but Annie holds the power of attorney for the owner and is there to negotiate a real estate deal.
Feeling pressured by the hotel’s manager and the prospective buyer, Annie’s uneasiness is soon justified when the buyer’s beautiful companion suddenly disappears and a murder rocks the resort’s peaceful beauty. Her working vacation–and budding romance with the resort’s charming kayak instructor–in turmoil, Annie digs deeper, uncovering enough clues to learn the hotel’s guest list is a complicated nest of greed, deceit, and revenge… and maybe uncovering enough to make her a target.
The first book in the Annie MacPherson Mystery Series.
“An intelligent heroine, a glorious setting, an ingenious murder and a romance that doesn’t overwhelm the crime-solving procedures.”
—The New York Times
“The kind of book readers wish there were more of. Spunky heroine, a great locale, logical plot with plenty of clues, a little romance.”
–K. K. Beck, author of the Iris Cooper Mystery Series
“Annie MacPherson is an appealing new attorney-sleuth, and I hope to read more of her adventures.”
–Shelley Singer, author of the Jake Samson Mystery Series
