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

She serves him breakfast at her café every morning . but he never seems to notice her.

Carrie Carter's small café in Seaside, New Jersey, is populated with a motley crew of locals . although Carrie only has eyes for Greg Barnes. He's recovering from a vicious crime that three years ago took the lives of his wife and children - and from the year he tried to drink his reality away. While her heart does a happy Snoopy dance at the sight of him, he never seems to notice her, to Carrie's chagrin.

When Carrie's dishwasher is killed and her young waitress disappears, Greg finds himself drawn into helping Carrie solve the mysteries . and into her life. But when Carrie's own painful past becomes all to present, her carefully constructed world begins to sink.

Will the fragile relationship she's built with Greg implode from the weight of the baggage they both carry?
