A really fun beach read. You will laugh out loud, sob in the same sentences and root for the underdogs, as you should.
Sunny Corday is a very complicated individual, both easily hurt and sometimes reckless. She has lived through two marriages which turned out to be fairly disastrous and has served for a time in a drug re-hab. She really is trying to forget her checkered past but, it's hard when her father, who is missing, is the reason for her problems.
Jonathan Corday, is a distant cousin. So distant that Sunny has never heard of him and, also he is as fussy as she is fearless. Jonathan is just looking for a little peace and quiet on a vacation at an old Victorian mansion the two have jointly inherited on the California coast. However, rest and relaxation is out of the question when the two run into each other (for real) and go on to find family skeletons.
This is a vigorous and full of life Cozy with plenty of puzzles, belly laughs, missing persons who are the source of the skeletons and much more. A fascinating book that will keep you on your toes while you flip the pages. So, enjoy and I'll talk to you soon.
