    I’ve found a new favorite author! Things I liked: 1) It is an entertaining, clean read. I really appreciate a gifted storyteller that stays true to the genre. No unnecessary profanity or sexual situations in this mystery. 2) It is an intriguing mystery story with just enough red herrings to keep it interesting. 3) Clark Thomas, the main character, is relatable and very likeable. His relationships with his parents, coworkers, and customers show the depth of his character. Having been a widower for tw I’ve found a new favorite author!

His relationships with his parents, coworkers, and customers show the depth of his character. Having been a widower for two years, I wonder as the series develops if he will have a love interest. 4) I like the personalities of both detectives Gomez and Moody; they complement each other well. Detective Gomez is my favorite of the two. She is professional in both appearance and attitude yet caring. 5) Erica Sullivan, the eager but respectful reporter, is another character that I really enjoyed in the story. 6) I really enjoyed the scenes when Clark visits the home of Julieta, a housekeeper for Seascapes Hotel. His interactions with her family were great. 7) It is a well-written and well-told story; the coastal setting is a bonus for me. 8) It is part of a series that I am anxious to continue reading. 9) The book is part of the Kindle Unlimited Library.

    It’s so nice reading a book that is based in the town you live, and I certainly didn’t see that ending coming... to be continued

    “It was a nice rug. Except for the body rolled up in the middle of it.” “To me, the best whodunits were the ones solved through old-fashioned detective skills. Finding leads, chasing leads, putting pieces of the puzzle together.” “There’s nothing more fragile and valuable than life. If someone kills another person, then justice should be served.” 4.5 Stars Out Of 5 This was a very enjoyable debut cozy beach mystery.

I decided to read this while vacationing in Myrtle Beach, so that definitely made it more enjoyable. The author is certainly familiar with the area. I enjoyed Clark, the main character, as he was equal parts likable as well as broken because of his wife’s death two years earlier. The crime itself is unique; Clark discovers the body of a woman he knows wrapped up in a rug in the bookstore he owns, Myrtle Beach Reads. He then gets himself wrapped up in the investigation as he tries to determine means, motive, and opportunity. There are a lot of great red herrings that make it difficult to determine whodunnit. The end was satisfying and the last few sentences show where the series might go next. Will definitely read Book 2 next year while at the beach!

One morning he fiknds a rug cropped up next to the back door of his bookstore. Inside is the body of a woman who works the local health spa, Oceanscapes, and a frequent customer appears. Which leaves Clark into assuming the rule of an amateur sleuth, like the heros\heroines in the mysteries he's read orthe detective shows he's watched.

    REVIEW: I was provided this novel free of charge by the author in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed reading this novel, there was a good slow build up of the character and the his investigation of the crime – as it allows the reader to see how the protagonist put the clues together (tho, it was rather disconcerting that the detectives with their years of experience couldn't).

I really enjoyed reading this novel, there was a good slow build up of the character and the his investigation of the crime – as it allows the reader to see how the protagonist put the clues together (tho, it was rather disconcerting that the detectives with their years of experience couldn't). One part that I found interesting (and at the same time almost out of left field) was that one of the witnesses who helped to place the murderer at the scene of the crime was a tangentially involved character that had only been in the area of the crime because he was waiting for a weekly gathering held at his bookstore. This is a strong read, that would be easily enjoyed by readers of early James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell. On a rating scale, I would give this book a solid four stars of a possible five stars. As with all reviews, this is only my five cents worth.

    I've read the 1st four books that Caleb wrote and liked them. Even though I usually prefer fantasy. This book is pretty good, too. Let me put it this way - was at 57% when I started reading this afternoon and I finished it. I had to find out who did it. And then Caleb, you had to put in that cliff hanger, darn it!

    I LOVE that it’s based on an area that I live in. I didn’t see the ending coming! Kept me guessing- I couldn’t put it down! Can’t wait for the next book.
