Death by the Sea

(The first book in the By the Sea Mystery series)
A novel by

In this mystery series debut by the national bestselling author, a Florida island hotel offers bright sun, colorful guests, and dark deeds.
On the barrier island of Melbourne Beach, Florida, The Indialantic by the Sea hotel has a hundred-year-old history—and more than a few guests seem to have been there from the start. When Liz Holt returns home after a decade in New York, she’s happy to be surrounded by the eccentric clientele and loving relatives at her family-run inn. And she’s grateful that business is staying afloat thanks to a few wealthy patrons.
But that patronage decreases by one when a filthy rich guest is discovered dead in her oceanfront suite. Police suspect a simple jewel theft gone wrong, but Liz wonders if the prosperous guest was marked for murder. One thing is sure: there’s a killer at the Indialantic, and if Liz lets gets distracted—by her troubled past or the handsome man tempting her to dredge it back up—her next reservation could be at the cemetery.
