A murder hits close too Serena’s family and she finally realizes who she loves!
Serena is finally taking a vacation with her family to Martha’s Vineyard to attend her father’s friend and his daughter’s engagement party. But when they arrive, the house has a police cruiser out front and they discover that her father’s friend Jack has had an accidental fall down a set of beach stairs and is deceased. But things don’t quite seem to add up. Now his son is missing, but when Serena checked customs, she found he landed the day before and his cell signal shows he is on the island. Suddenly, Nate shows up to support Serena in the investigation, which is sort of weird. Next, Tanner shows up too, at her mom’s insistence. As the investigation continues, they discover a connection to an ancient Mayan vase. Then the fiancee’s son is killed with a connection to drug dealing and the daughter looks guilty too. Can Serena ever just have a day off?
This was the best book of the entire series. It kicked off with a bang and didn’t let up to the end. This one was probably her most emotional book as the murder was very close to home for her. The setting of Martha’s Vineyard wasn’t bad either. There were a lot of things wrapped up in this book. A little spoiler alert, but Serena finally makes a choice between Nate and Tanner. We discover Nate’s past and why he just appears to be a jack of all trades. And we finally get the real deal on crazy Aunt Martha. Maybe she’s not so crazy after all. Trust me, you will thoroughly enjoy this fun filled mystey!
