I finished the book yesterday and wanted to write a review this morning. While checking my inbox there was a mail about Shelley’s last blog post (HH’s cat). So why not give it a go.

First line of the book.

Claire Watkins tossed a dead rose stem from her spacious garden into the small wheelbarrow just as the sun made its appearance, splashing the blue Atlantic Ocean with a wash of pink.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Tourist season is about to start, and murder is the last thing on the minds of the locals in Mooseamuck Island, Maine … but that’s about to change.

When local psychic Zoila Rivers is found dead at the zen garden, retired police consultants Dominic Benedetti and Claire Watkins are forced to team up to catch the killer. Too bad Claire and Dom don’t always see eye to eye.

But with an island full of locals who all have secrets, Claire and Dom have to put aside their differences in order to solve the case before the police arrest the wrong person and a killer goes free.

Will Claire and Dom figure out whose secret was worth killing for in time to stop the killer from claiming another victim?

Introduce the main character using only three words.

There are two:

Claire-local, emotion based, doubtful

Dominic-not so local, evidence-based, doubtful

Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

Anyone who likes a cozy mystery, there’s even a cat in it

Your favourite line/scene.

Dom laid down his fork with a satisfied sigh as he finished the last bite of a small sampling of Sarah’s ricotta pie. It was creamy and sweet— just the way he liked it. He leaned back in his chair, remembering how his Nonna would sometimes add lemon or chocolate chips to the batter.
