Annie Darling recruits another volunteer to take her place at a local charity so Annie can host a book signing at Death on Demand. Annie’s cell gets several calls from the volunteer with complaints about a charity employee, hints of scandal, and a plea for Annie to come. Annie drops by Better Tomorrow and finds death has been there first.

Annie enlists the help of her husband Max, old friend and mystery reader Henny Brawley, island mystery author Emma Clyde, and Annie’s ditzy mother-in-law Laurel to try and solve the crime when an innocent man is suspected. Their investigation focuses on an overturned kayak, a stolen motorboat, an illicit love affair, and a rebellious teenager. Annie sets out in the fog, hoping to find the final piece of the puzzle and instead confronts a killer.

“The Annie Darling books are masterpieces of construction and characterization, with a perfect balance between a puzzle mystery that keeps a reader happily turning pages, and well-drawn characters that are as full of surprises as the people in our own lives.” ~Connecticut Post
