The author of Independence Slay is back as intrepid event planner Liv Montgomery discovers something fishy going on beneath Celebration Bay’s deceptively calm surface.
Liv Montgomery knew that asking Celebration Bay’s newspaper owner-slash-ne’er-do-well Chaz Bristow to teach her how to fish meant angling for more than a lesson in sinkers and chum. Like asking him to spearhead the fund raiser that’ll benefit the town's community center. And there are worse ways to spend the afternoon than out on the town’s picturesque lake.
But it’s not long before Liv reels in a huge catch—already quite dead. It’s the body of an unknown man, and it was no accidental drowning. This floater was murdered. While local authorities investigate, it’s Liv and Chaz who stumble upon a shocking motive, and become live bait for a ruthless killer determined to keep his secrets down in the deep.
Includes exclusive previews of the next Celebration Bay mystery, Trick or Deceit, and A Gilded Grave, the first book in Shelley Freydont’s new Newport Gilded Age Mystery series.
Trawling for Trouble by Shelley Freydont is a novella in the Celebration Bay Mystery series. I have not read the other books in this series yet. Right away, I liked Liv Montgomery. She is trying to learn how to fish from Chaz, when she reels in a body. The mystery starts from the very beginning. I enjoyed the back-and-forth between Chaz and Liz. The author does a nice job with diving right into the mystery and plays out the mystery really well for a novella. This cozy is well-written. I enjoyed Trawling for Trouble by Shelley Freydont and I look forward to going back and reading the Celebration Bay Mystery series from the beginning.
