This week I’m reviewing…

25329276Here’s the synopsis:
Welcome to Pineapple Cay, the new hometown of Nina Spark.

Things seemed to get off to a good start. Nina’s new hometown is the charming village of Coconut Cove, with its narrow lanes lined with candy coloured houses and gardens overflowing with tropical flowers. Her back yard is a white sand beach and the mesmerizing turquoise sea.

But local big shot Barry Bassett has his eye on Nina’s cozy little beach cottage with the aim of tearing it down to build condos. Then Barry’s obnoxious wife Tiffany goes missing, and Nina finds herself sitting across a desk from the very serious chief of police, Blue Roker, wondering how her day dream of easy living in the islands got so far off track so quickly.

Join Nina Spark and her new best friends, the philosophizing mailman Danish Jensen and the ever cheerful Pansy Gallagher, as they careen around Pineapple Cay at the maximum speed of fifteen miles an hour in a golf cart, trying to figure out what the heck is going on.
Here are my thoughts:

Nina buys a cottage in Pineapple Cay on a whim after finding her husband cheating on her in their New York apartment.  She arrives to her new home and lands right in the middle of absolute drama.

I really liked Nina as a character, but I think Danish (the mail man slash yoga instructor slash bartender) is my absolute favorite.  He’s the perfect level of crazy and somehow manages to get Nina involved with all of his hair brained detective schemes.

This is the perfect summer comedic mystery.  I advise lying on a beach with a fruity cocktail in hand while reading…but a couch and glass of wine will also do.
