My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is my first cozy mystery by Author Sarah R Shaber. I have since discovered that she has a slew of different series set in the same southeastern USA coastal area, Pearlie Beach, North Carolina.
I said this is my first Shaber mystery but it won’t be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed her offbeat hero Simon Shaw, archeologist, and heroine and hint of romance. I enjoyed all the colorful characters and natural beauty of the oceanside setting. I also like the interplay of history with the present.
I appreciated the fact that I liked her characters. So many times, I don’t care about the people in the mystery and don’t really care what happens to them. (Those mysteries I don’t finish.) I cared about her characters and I only disliked the murderer. Whom I did NOT guess until the final scene! Agatha Christie would call Sarah R Shaber a kindred soul!
